HKEx introduces new market access products

These market access products are cash-settled structured products issued by ABN Amro. The warrants have an exercise price of (close to) zero, and will track the underlying stock price with no leverage.

“Market access products allow investors to gain leveraged or non-leveraged exposure to a great variety of non-HK underlying assets,” said Eric Yip, HKEx's head of cash market in Hong Kong. He added that the market access products may be leveraged, depending on the structure of the product.

The warrants track the Nikkei 225 Index, Kospi 200 Index, Kuala Lumpur Composite Index, Set 50 Index, Nasdaq 100 Index and gold prices.

The exchange currently lists 39 higher strike derivative warrants.

The new products follow a December announcement that the exchange would facilitate a wider range of market access products.
