Providing access to one of the world’s great economies

Connecting China to the World

China’s economic growth has been a steady, gradual process, generating significant economic benefits for both China and the UK. The past three decades of policy and economic reforms have enabled China’s rapid ascension to the global stage. Sitting at the heart of the global financial community, London Stock Exchange Group are delighted to have supported this.

The latest vehicle for that co-operation is the Shanghai-London Stock Connect.


The Global Equity Segment: Trading China in London

The Global Equity Segment (GES) is the latest innovation from London Stock Exchange. With GES, investors are able to trade global securities, including certain US blue chips and US-listed Chinese ADRs such as Alibaba, Baidu and Futu, during London hours.

Using the well-established CREST Depository Interest (CDI) workflow allows investors to trade and settle international securities in London quickly, cheaply and efficiently.

Moving CDIs efficiently between markets allows for cross-border execution and settlement within a t+2 settlement cycle. Investors can buy securities in London and sell in New York on the same day during regular trading hours.


Index Inclusion

LSEGs world-leading index and analytics business, FTSE Russell, has a strong track record in developing Chinese market indexes; FTSE Russell China benchmarks have become widely recognised by investors and issuers globally as a leading measure of the Chinese equity market.

A-shares are included in FTSE Russell’s global equity benchmarks; a reflection of China’s remarkable ascent and the great progress that has been made in Chinese equity capital markets.
