Shanghai-London Stock Connect

Shanghai-London Stock Connect


Shanghai-London Stock Connect (“Stock Connect”) brings together one of the world’s largest domestic capital markets with the world’s leading international market.

Shanghai-London Stock Connect will allow global investors to benefit from China‘s growth through London, while London Stock Exchange listed companies will be able to access Chinese investors directly.

The project represents a number of firsts:

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

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

By adopting new regulations, while leveraging existing infrastructure, we have introduced a programme that will support the development over time 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.
