Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited Opens New Office in London

Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (HKEX), a top-tier exchange group globally, marked the inauguration of its latest office in London this week, further amplifying its international influence.

A celebratory reception was held in The City of London. Nicolas Aguzin, HKEX Chief Executive Officer, alongside other senior executives, hosted attendees from the UK’s financial and business sectors.

Symbolizing HKEX’s dedication to its worldwide clientele and emphasizing the value of global connectivity, Aguzin had the honor of striking the HKEX gong.

The freshly unveiled London office aims to bolster HKEX’s foothold in the UK. The office will serve as a bridge, linking European clients to Asia’s premier and most fluid capital markets.

Clients in Europe will benefit from localized support, ensuring they can tap into Hong Kong’s vast and varied product ecosystem and leverage the prospects presented by Asia’s dominant megatrends.

Reflecting on this development, CEO Nicolas Aguzin remarked:

Our London office is a testament to our unwavering commitment to our global clientele. Following the recent New York office launch, this new establishment in London will offer our clients heightened accessibility, insights, and opportunities. With our footprints now spanning the globe’s three primary time zones, we are strategically positioned to unite capital with chances, reinforcing Hong Kong’s reputation as a global superconnector.

Aguzin further elaborated on the already robust connection HKEX shares with London’s finance community, courtesy of its subsidiary, the London Metal Exchange. “This new addition,” Aguzin said, “will further enhance our rapport with our expanding European customer base. We’re eager to collaborate with regional investors, firms, and risk managers, collectively fostering sustainable success.”

The London office’s primary role will revolve around showcasing HKEX’s allure in international equities, its exclusive link with Mainland China’s capital markets, and its burgeoning derivatives products. The European clientele will gain firsthand insights into Hong Kong’s capital market innovations and opportunities.

Kevin Rideout, HKEX Co-Head of Sales and Marketing, highlighted London’s financial significance. He said:

Being one of the global financial powerhouses with Europe’s most extensive capital reservoir, and a hotspot for hedge funds, fintech firms, and private equity, London is an ideal location for our expansion. Our presence here ensures we can closely collaborate with our European associates, understanding and catering to their needs, while helping them tap into Asia’s growth potential.

With the addition of London and New York, HKEX now boasts a more expansive global presence, supplementing its established bases in Beijing, Shanghai, and Singapore.
