Trading and Clearing Platforms

Overview

Like the financial markets in New York and London, the advent of new technologies has resulted in a shift in the financial markets in Hong Kong from voice based trading systems and paper based clearing systems to electronic based order routing and matching and clearing systems.

Drawing from our deep understanding of the financial markets, we have an in-depth understand of the operations and regulatory requirements of trading and clearing systems. We have acted for a number of platform operators in the offering and operation of electronic facilities in Hong Kong to directly match orders, to route orders, and to settle trades. We have comprehensive expertise advising on regulatory issues, including in respect of authorization, licensing and registration or exemption thereto, in representing clients before regulators, and in advising on the full range of corporate, trust, or commercial law issues that may arise including, in particular, insolvency law issues arising in the context of clearing.
