Enhanced Volume Discount Scheme

(Updated 9 Dec 2021)


HKEX-IS introduced the following discount scheme on 26 August 2016 (duration subject to regular review) that leverages on the existing Mainland China Discount Programme (Our Ref: MDD/15/2671) to promote the visibility and penetration of securities market data in the Mainland in preparation for the launch of Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect ("SZ-HK Connect"):

Programme Details 

Programme Duration:
  • From 26 August 2016 to 31 December 2023
  • Information Vendors ("IVs") who join the Mainland China Discount Programme are automatically eligible for the Enhanced Volume Discount Scheme.
Discount Scheme: Applicable to retail subscribers who are physically located in Mainland China (excluding Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan regions):

Discounted Subscriber Fee per Month (HK$)






5,001 – 10,000




10,001 – 50,000




50,001 – 100,000







Promotion Offer:
  • HKEX-IS will use the Discount Rate based on the IV’s subscription level of the third month after the launch of SZ-HK Connect and apply the rate retrospectively to previous months from August 2016.
  • To illustrate, if an IV reaches 60,000 retail subscribers during the third month after the launch of SZ-HK Connect, the Discount Rate would be 60%. HKEX-IS will apply this rate to previous months from August 2016 to 3 months after SZ-HK Connect launches, even if the subscription level in the previous month do not reach 60,000.

Note:  The Enhanced Volume Discount Scheme will replace the existing Volume Discount Promotion Programme (Our Ref: MDD/14/1365) launched on 17 November 2014.
