In his first live interview with Bloomberg’s Haslinda Amin at Davos this year, HKEX Chief Executive Charles Li expressed his optimism for Hong Kong’s financial markets.

He noted Moody’s recent downgrade but stressed that Hong Kong’s fundamentals remained intact. The markets remain strong, with HKEX once again having the #1 global IPO market, demonstrating its attractiveness and resiliency.

He also confirmed HKEX would continue to look for opportunities as part of its strategy to connect China to the world, and is confident about the pipeline of IPO listings for 2020.
