Launch of Hang Seng CSI Shanghai-Hong Kong AH Smart Index
PRESS RELEASE
10 November 2014
Launch of Hang Seng CSI Shanghai-Hong Kong AH Smart Index
Hang Seng Indexes Company Limited (“Hang Seng Indexes”), Hong Kong's leading index
compiler, and China Securities Index Company Limited (“CSI”), an influential index
company in mainland China, today announced that they will jointly launch the Hang Seng
CSI Shanghai-Hong Kong AH Smart Index (“SHHKSI”) on 17 November 2014.
This cooperative effort brings together the brands and expertise of the two index compilers
and will put global investors in a better position to capture the investment opportunities
arising from Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect (“SH-HK Stock Connect”).
The SHHKSI will cover 50 SH-HK Stock Connect eligible companies with dual listings as
A-shares on Shanghai Stock Exchange and H-shares on the Main Board of the Stock
Exchange of Hong Kong. The index will include the share class that has a lower relative
price.
The SHHKSI aims to provide a benchmark reflecting a price arbitrage strategy that may
bring additional returns to investors while the AH price difference is expected to be
narrowed after the launch of the SH-HK Stock Connect.
Mr Vincent Kwan, Director and General Manager of Hang Seng Indexes, said: “Hang
Seng Indexes is pleased to join with CSI to develop the Shanghai-Hong Kong AH Smart
Index. The Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect will improve the efficiency of the two
stock markets and induce more demand on cross-market index products. We will continue
to develop more new index solutions to satisfy different market demands.”
Mr Zhigang Ma, Chief Executive Officer of CSI, said: “Launched with the partnership of
Hang Seng Indexes, this strategy index rides on the arbitrage opportunities arising from the
AH price difference of dual-listed companies in Shanghai and Hong Kong. CSI will
continue to develop more indexes to meet investors’ needs in cross-border investments.”
The SHHKSI will be calculated and disseminated real-time at 2-second intervals starting
from 17 November 2014. For more details of the SHHKSI and the list of constituents,
please refer to Appendix 1 and 2 respectively.
