FC Securities strives to provide distinctive financial services
First Capital Securities is a wholly owned subsidiary of China First Capital Group, a licensed corporation of the Securities and Futures Commission of Hong Kong.
Since its opening in February 2016, FC Securities has been perfecting its businesses, and has launched online and mobile platforms for trading stocks through the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. It also launched platforms for trading stocks listed on bourses in the United States, Japan, Singapore and Australia.
FC Securities has been authorized for official operation through the Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect platform and has also become one of the participants of the ShenzhenHong Kong Stock Connect platform.
It has been licensed by the Sec urities and Futures Commission of Hong Kong to engage in the margin financing business, thereby providing customers with more comprehensive services. China’s 13 th Five-Year Plan (2016-20) supports the increased interconnectivity between the financial marke ts of the mainland and Hong Kong.
The launch of the Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect in December 2016 marked a new era of the interconnec tion be tween the two capital markets.
The removal of aggregate quotas for investment through the Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect i n August 2016 is expected to positively impact FC Sec urities.
