HPR Expands Market Access Platform to Hong Kong Stock Connects

By Uri Inspector, Staff Reporter

Hyannis Port Research (HPR), a Boston-based provider of advanced capital markets infrastructure technologies, has expanded its market access platform to include support for the Shanghai-Hong Kong and Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connects.

The HPR platform includes the company’s pre-trade risk products for low latency market access and risk management, Riskbot and Softbot. Both provide over 50 customisable risk parameters, ranging from pre-trade fat-finger checks to organisation-wide portfolio risk checks.

HPR CEO Anthony Amicangioli says: “The two stock connects have become vital components of Asian equity market structure, enabling investment capital to flow between China and the international community like never before. By extending our platform to cover these two routes, we allow investors to leverage our market access platform that provides unmatched levels of risk management, performance and stability.”

Launched in November 2014 and December 2016, respectively, the Shanghai-Hong Kong and Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect schemes allow international and mainland Chinese investors to use their trading and clearing facilities while trading securities in each other’s markets. According to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, the two connects are responsible for 7.17% of total HKEx equity turnover. Earlier this month, China A shares were added to MSCI’s Emerging Markets Index, a move industry observers expect will increase the attractiveness of the two platforms.
