Derivatives Market Data Distribution Partnership Programme 


In January 2016, HKEX Information Services Limited (HKEX-IS) introduced a Derivatives Market Data Distribution Partnership Programme (“the Partnership Programme”) to further promote market data visibility of HKEX’s New Derivatives Products in the Mainland.

The New Derivatives Products include the Physically Settled Gold Futures, Sector Index Futures, RMB Currency Futures, RMB Currency Options, London Metal Mini Futures, and selected stock futures. 

The Partnership Programme leverages on the Marketing Programme for Asia Commodities and Derivatives New Products that real-time derivatives data are free for redistribution in the Mainland.  The Partnership Programme is designed to encourage information vendors (IVs) to leverage on the fee waivers under the Marketing Programme to redistribute real-time data of ALL New Derivatives Products on Information Vendors' (IVs) key service platforms.
