What is Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect?

Similar to Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect, Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect is a stock trading link between Shenzhen and Hong Kong.

The link gives investors outside Mainland China another trading channel to the world's largest emerging market, allowing investors to trade over 700 stocks on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange. Mainland Chinese brokers will also gain access to transactions in 475 stocks in Hong Kong.

What Makes this Investment Opportunity Exciting?
  • Shenzhen's stock exchange has 2,209 listed companies, more than the 1,583 listings in Shanghai1

  • Gain access to one of China's hottest sectors: tech stocks - nearly a fifth of Shenzhen’s stock market is tech companies, a much bigger proportion than in Shanghai, where tech stocks make up just 4% of the market2

  • Shenzhen's stock exchange has been among the busiest worldwide this year, eclipsing even the NASDAQ and Bats Global Markets in the U.S. as the second most active market during several months of 20163

  • Shenzhen's stock exchange offers ample liquidity - the value of share trading was USD957 billion during January 2020, which is about 1.5 times that of Shanghai's stock exchange at USD634 billion4
