Our Post Trade Division is the crucial foundation to a wide range of HKEX businesses and products. It is also responsible for the operation and business development of Hong Kong’s four Clearing Houses: the market infrastructure that provides clearing & settlement, custody & asset servicing, financing, collateral management, investor services and reporting. HKEX Post Trade services extend across a broad-range of asset classes and products, including securities in Hong Kong and Mainland China, and as well as on-exchange and Over-the-Counter (OTC) derivatives.

In additional to the transactional function and services provided, the Post Trade Division is also responsible for risk management and market surveillance; helping to ensure the integrity, fairness, stability and resilience of the Hong Kong market. 

As HKEX continues to work to create deeper, more liquid global capital markets, the Post Trade team supports our market participants by processing transactions efficiently, enhancing liquidity and reducing risk.
