The Hong Kong list is made up of 49% of continental companies

 

The continental companies make up almost half of the companies listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. Taking a picture of the situation is an investigation conducted by Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited, which revealed that there are 254 companies listed on H shares, with a market value of HK $ 7.2 trillion.

These companies listed in Hong Kong, which account for 49% of the total, are composed of: companies with H shares, companies with red chips and private companies with non-H units.

 

The H shares were launched in Hong Kong on July 15, 1993

 

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the launch of H shares. On 15 July 1993, the first H company, Tsingtao Brewery Company, began trading in Hong Kong.

Since then, Hong Kong has become the main offshore market for lists of continental companies.
