Mr. He Yaobin, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of CFCG, said, “Such a large IPO recording an oversubscription reflects strong investment sentiment in the market. The Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect and the relaxation of rules to permits Mainland insurance funds to invest in Hong Kong stocks are expected to promote the liquidity of Hong Kong stocks and to positively affect the activities in the IPO and secondary security markets. Riding this trend, First Capital Securities will make the most of the favourable national policies to further expand its securities trading-related businesses, with the aim of providing financial support for CFCG’s education investment initiatives while offering investors diversified investment channels so they can capture more lucrative investment opportunities.”
