Taiwan Investors Gain Access To HKEx Derivatives Market’s H-Shares Index Products

Investors in Taiwan can now buy and sell the H-shares index (HHI) products traded in Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited’s (HKEx) derivatives market, which comprise HHI futures, HHI options and Mini HHI futures, following the Taiwan financial regulator’s decision to add the products to its list of overseas futures and options contracts with trading authorisation.  Before the admission of the HHI products, Hang Seng Index (HSI) futures, HSI options and Mini HSI futures were the only Hong Kong Futures Exchange products on the list.

HKEx recommends Futures Exchange Participants interested in possible business opportunities stemming from the regulatory change refer to the details posted on the Taiwan financial regulator’s website to ensure they comply with all the applicable rules and regulations.

“We welcome Taiwan investors’ participation in our markets,” said HKEx Chief Operating Officer Gerald Greiner. “We understand from market participants that there have been signs of increased Taiwan investor interest in our HHI products.

“We continue to see healthy demand for our HHI products and other products that form the China dimension of our market,” Mr Greiner said.

“Investors in many markets have access to our products so we will continue to promote them here in Hong Kong and overseas,” Mr Greiner added.
