With a GDP growth hovering around 7% and a number of pending market reforms that will significantly open up the market, mainland China currently represents one of the most attractive investment opportunities today globally. However, there are significant barriers to actually trading in and out of mainland China.
Due to the close geographical and political relationship between Hong Kong and mainland China, understanding of and access to mainland markets is better in Hong Kong than anywhere else globally. In recent years, this access to the mainland market has significantly changed and increased the importance of Hong Kong as a financial market especially for investors looking to trade China.
Benefiting from relatively loose regulations, yet strong geographic ties with mainland China, Hong Kong’s capital markets offer diverse financial asset classes and instruments for trading purposes with a high degree of liquidity and market efficiency, as well as transparent regulations.
