Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (HKEX) has admitted two additional information vendors (IVs) to its Mainland Market Data Distribution Partnership Programme to further enhance the distribution of prices and other product information from its derivatives markets to Mainland investors.
The new vendors approved are Webstock Information Systems, and Zhengzhou Esunny Information Technology.
The Mainland Market Data Distribution Partnership Programme was launched by the HKEX in January 2016 to promote market data distribution and marketing for HKEX’s USD-CNH Futures, stock futures and London Metal Mini Futures contracts. The scheme now includes the sector index futures and the new Renminbi, or RMB, Currency Futures HKEX introduced in May 2016 as well.
The programme also promotes wider availability of real-time data on mobile devices and applications, which are widely used by Mainland China investors.
With the two new partners, there are now eight IVs in the programme. Listed in alphabetical order:
