HKEX rolls out HKD-Renminbi dual counter model

It will ease listing, trading, and settlement of RMB counters in Hong Kong. 

The Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (HKEX) has introduced a new Hong Kong Dollar-Renminbi (HKD-RMB) Dual Counter Model and a Dial Counter Market Making Programme in its securities market. 

This is in support of the listing, trading, and settlement of RMB counters in Hong Kong.

“The introduction of the HKD-RMB Dual Counter Model and the Dual Counter Market Making Programme is an exciting new development in our market,” HKEX Chief Operating Officer and Co-Head of Markets Wilfred Yiu said. 

“These and other initiatives will help further facilitate and attract dual counter listings and help develop even greater synergies with our current China-related products. HKEX is committed to supporting the internationalisation of RMB and further elevating Hong Kong’s role as the world’s premier offshore RMB hub.”
