Grand Changes to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange’s Trading Hall
Since its opening in 1986, the trading hall of the Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (HKEX) has been used for floor trading. After 31 years of use, the trading hall officially closed after its transaction on 27th October 2017. With the technological advancements, many participants of the stock exchange prefer to conduct trading activities in their own establishments, thus greatly reducing the amounts of floor trading.
The remodeled trading hall will reopen in the first quarter of next year and will be renamed “Hong Kong Connect Hall”. It will become a museum, conference and exhibition space as well as conducting investors education activities to continue promoting the development of Hong Kong’s financial markets.
Before the trading hall becomes history, our founder Dr. Edmond Fong was honored to witness and take photos with the directors of the Institute of Securities Dealers in this historic moment!
