Overview (Program Summary)
Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited (the “Stock Exchange”) plans to modernize both the logic and the infrastructure of the Hong Kong IPO settlement process, HKEX expects that the introduction of a newly developed platform FINI (Fast Interface for New Issuance) will shorten the time gap between IPO pricing and trading. This will give investors quicker access to new listings, reduce market risk and improve efficiency for all parties involved. HKEX plans to roll out FINI in Q4 2022, the new platform for IPO market participants and regulatory authorities to interact seamlessly, allowing new shares to start trading as soon as “T+2”.
The webinar will discuss the key implications of the New Hong Kong IPO Settlement process under FINI.
