Investment Market Evolves in China, Business and Industry Trends Analysis

China not only has the world’s largest population base, but its long-term economic growth has also created a large base of affluent business owners and investors.  The primary Chinese mainland exchanges are located in Shenzhen and Shanghai.  Hong Kong also has an exchange that is of great interest to global and local investors and has become one of the world’s top exchanges.  In late 2014, the Chinese government announced the opening of the Hong Kong market to Chinese mainland investors, and both Hong Kong and Shanghai exchanges to foreign investors.  The new arrangement is called the “Stock Connect” program.  A new exchange, the Beijing Stock Exchange, opened in late 2021.
China has additional futures and commodities exchanges.  They are:  China Financial Futures Exchange, Dalian Commodity Exchange, Shanghai Futures Exchange, Shanghai Steel Electronic Exchange and Zhengzhou Commodity Exchange.
China is home to hundreds of millions of retail investors.  Many of them are interested in both global and Chinese stock exchanges.  A number of smartphone apps enable Chinese investors to buy and sell on U.S. exchanges.  The apps include Jimubox, Futu Niu Niu and Tiger Trade.
In March 2020, the Chinese government approved Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. and Morgan Stanley to take majority control of their local Chinese securities businesses.  (These U.S.-based parent firms were historically operating as minority partners.)  Going forward, the China Securities Regulatory Commission will allow the companies to increase their ownership of their China joint ventures (Goldman Sachs Gao Hua Securities Co. and Morgan Stanley Huaxin Securities Co.) to 51%.
