At HKEX, we understand that our responsibilities go beyond our role as an exchange group.

Who We Are:

HKEX Foundation is incorporated by HKEX to offer greater autonomy in driving changes that align with HKEX’s purposes, and to create a platform to engage key stakeholders in giving back to the community over the long term. It is a recognised charitable entity set-up under section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance in Hong Kong. It represents a part of how HKEX intends to achieve its Corporate Social Responsibility (“CSR”) objectives by providing a structured and focused way to take our commitment to philanthropic efforts to the next level. With the aspiration of being a responsible and visible corporate giver delivering an influential and positive impact to the local community, the HKEX Foundation drives and inspires change by supporting community projects that address various social and environmental challenges faced by our society.

  • Social Diversity and Inclusion
  • We firmly believe that embracing diversity and equality in all forms helps foster an inclusive culture, not only in our workplace but also across the wider community.
  • Poverty Relief         
  • As a responsible corporate citizen, we are committed to serving our communities and supporting those in need.
  • Environmental Sustainability
  • We are committed to help promoting the best practices for raising environmental awareness, encouraging accountability and actions.
