To facilitate the clearing and settlement of both Shenzhen- and Shanghai-listed equities, China Renaissance has expanded its post-trade processing relationship with Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (NYSE:BR), a global Fintech leader, via Stock Connect. The successful expansion announced today builds on the solutions China Renaissance have offered clients in equity trading via Stock Connect, with Broadridge's post-trade solution implemented in March 2020. This expansion is in addition to the Hong Kong-listed equities processing Broadridge successfully has provided to China Renaissance since 2016. As part of the growing relationship, both firms are jointly planning for upcoming market and regulatory changes, such as Hong Kong Exchange's (HKEX) Synapse program and FINI (Fast Interface for New Issuance) proposal, which aims to replace the existing "T+5" process with "T+1" for newly listed shares on HKEX.
"We have been impressed by the resilience of Broadridge's systems and, as a technology partner, Broadridge understands and supports multiple markets, including north and southbound trading across asset classes," said Andy Maynard, Managing Director, Global Head of Equities, China Renaissance. "We value our long-term relationship with Broadridge. Their experience with next-generation technologies for clearing and settlement will be beneficial for us to leverage as HKEX's Stock Connect evolves, and the relationship allows us to be ahead of the curve for our clients."
