Shanghai London Stock Connect
Connecting two of the world’s great economies


Shanghai-London Stock Connect brings together one of the world’s largest domestic capital markets with the leading international market. It allows global investors to benefit from China‘s growth through London, while London Stock Exchange listed companies can access Chinese investors directly.

The project represents a number of firsts:

  • The first time foreign companies can list in mainland China and the first time Shanghai Stock Exchange (SSE) listed companies can raise capital abroad through instruments fungible with their domestic shares.
  • The first time Chinese investors can access international stocks from within China without being subject to domestic capital controls.
  • The first time international investors can access China A-shares from outside Greater China and through international trading and settlement practices.

Shanghai-London Stock Connect has been developed jointly by SSE and LSEG, with the support of both the UK and Chinese governments and in collaboration with regulatory authorities.

By adopting new regulations and leveraging existing infrastructure we have built a programme that supports the development of a vibrant financial ecosystem connecting China, the UK and the wider global economy. We invite issuers, banks, brokers, asset managers, asset owners and professional services firms from both countries to learn more and participate in Stock Connect.
