The Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (HKEX) has officially opened its new office in London, further extending its existing international reach with offices in New York, Beijing, Shanghai and Singapore.
The new office will provide on-the-ground support to customers in the region and help them to access Hong Kong’s capital markets.
It will also focus on promoting HKEX’s international equities franchise, its exclusive connectivity with Mainland China’s capital markets and its rapidly expanding derivatives product suite.
HKEX already has existing strong ties with the financial community in London through its subsidiary, the London Metal Exchange.
Kevin Rideout, Co-Head of Sales and Marketing, HKEX said,
“London is one of the world’s top financial centres and is home to Europe’s largest capital pool. Well known for its extensive network of international professionals, and its commitment to innovation, London is also one of the premier hubs for hedge funds, private equity and fintech companies.
By establishing a presence in the city, we can better connect with our European clients and partners, gain insights into their needs, and support them as they seek to capture Asia’s growth opportunities.”
Nicolas Aguzin, Chief Executive Officer of HKEX said,
“The opening of our London office marks another significant development in our continued commitment to our customers around the world. Together with the recent successful launch of our New York office, our new HKEX London office will bring greater access, opportunity and insight to our global clients.
Now, with a presence in the three major world time zones, we are very well placed to connect capital with opportunities and enhance international connectivity, further strengthening Hong Kong’s role as a global superconnector.”
