Marketing Programme for Mobile Application Service

(Updated 29 Sep 2020)


HKEX-IS introduced the Marketing Programme for Mobile Application Service (“the Programme”) in 2017 (duration subject to regular review) with an aim to

  • Further promote the visibility and penetration of securities market data in the Mainland
  • Offer a lower fee package for Information Vendors (“IVs”)
  • Promote the use of deeper depth data at a cheaper cost
  • Cope with the market trend in mobile trading

The following key modifications to the Programme will take effect from its renewal after expiry on 31 Dec 2020:

  1. Extension of the Programme duration from end of 2020 to end of 2021; and
  2. Removal of Redistribution Fee waiver for IVs who are not Southbound Brokers under the HK$5 Subscriber Fee plan of the Programme effective 1 January 2021.
