Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Ltd (HKEX) opened its new office in London, further extending its international reach and enabling a deeper connection with global investors.
The new office in the heart of the British capital’s financial district will focus on promoting the attractiveness of HKEX’s international equities franchise, its exclusive connectivity with Chinese mainland’s capital markets, and its derivatives product suite, according to a statement released by the operator of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.
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 super-connector.

It will also provide the group's European clients with on-the-ground support and insight on Hong Kong’s capital market opportunities and innovations.
“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,” said Nicolas Aguzin, CEO of HKEX.
“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 super-connector,” he said.
HKEX has already set foot in London’s financial community by acquiring the London Metal Exchange in 2012.
“We look forward to working with investors, companies and risk managers in the region, supporting them as together we drive our shared sustainable success,” Aguzin added.
Describing London as one of the world’s top financial centers and home to Europe’s largest capital pool, Kevin Rideout, HKEX co-head of sales and marketing, said the exchange group’s presence in the city can help it “better connect with European clients and partners, gain insights into their needs, and support them as they seek to capture Asia’s growth opportunities.”
