Mainland-Hong Kong Stock Connect

The launch of Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect in November 2014 enabled mutual market access between the Shanghai Stock Exchange and The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited. The programme allows Hong Kong and international investors to access the Shanghai stock market (northbound trading), and qualified Mainland investors to tap the Hong Kong stock market (southbound trading). It accelerated the integration of Mainland markets with the world and underpinned Hong Kong's evolving role in the Mainland's capital market liberalisation and opening up.

Mutual market access was expanded when Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect was launched in December 2016. Currently, more than 2,000 eligible shares in Shanghai, Shenzhen and Hong Kong are covered by the scheme.
