Hong Kong Breaks Singapore Grip


Hong Kong, China -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/14/2022 -- When it comes to becoming the dominant pool of liquidity for China stock futures, the Hong Kong stock exchange has made a major move to seize market share from rival Singapore, breaking the city state's grip. This has resulted in an international-level battle in terms of how investors all over the world hedge Chinese equities. Singapore is still the biggest centre in the world for so-called A share futures and will remain so despite the inroads that Hong Kong is making. However, there is no doubt that the balance is changing. The current shift is not only pitting the Hong Kong market share against Singapore but also has much wider implications too. It is positioning BlackRock - the world's largest provider in exchange traded funds - against Chinese fund companies and MSCI against FTSE Russell, for example. There is no doubt that 2022 is going to be a pivotal year in terms of the fight for the futures market.
