Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (HKEX) announced today (Friday) it has rescheduled the final testing and rollout of the investor identification model for Northbound trading in Stock Connect, its mutual market access programme with the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges, to avoid any disruptions from Super Typhoon Mangkhut, which is expected to affect Hong Kong in the next few days.

Final testing has been moved by one week from 15 September to 22 September, and the rollout date from 17 September to 26 September (there will be no Northbound trading on 24 September, a public holiday on the Mainland, or 25 September, a public holiday in Hong Kong).

Additional information is available in a circular HKEX issued today, a news release it issued on 24 August and the Northbound Investor ID Model information on the HKEX website.
