On 19 June 2023, HKEX introduced the HKD-RMB Dual Counter Model (“Model”) to the secondary market for trading and settlement purposes.
The Model covers specific securities listed in both HKD and RMB counters only. All shares or units of the same securities (but in different trading counters), are generally of the same class, with the same holders’ rights and entitlements, and fully interchangeable between counters.
Such securities would be designated as the HKD-RMB Dual Counter Securities and will be published by HKEX from time to time, after the rollout of the Model.
There will not be any contra trading for these counters, should trades be done between the HKD counter and RMB counters (e.g. buy HKD counter, sell RMB counter or vice versa).
Please contact your Trading Representative to learn more.
Securities under the two counters are of the same class, holdings of securities in the two counters can be transferred without change of beneficial ownership. Please contact your Trading Representative if you wish to transfer your holdings between the HKD-RMB dual counters.
An investor can distinguish between the two counters on POEMS by their stock codes. The general principle is that separate and unique stock codes are assigned to the HKD and RMB counters respectively.
For an equity, the stock code for the RMB counter will be a 5-digit number starting with an “8”, while a 5-digit number starting with a “0” would be assigned for the HKD counter.
The last four digits of the stock codes for the two counters will normally be the same, in line with the existing allocation arrangement.
HKD counter – 0XXXX
RMB counter – 8XXXX
