Huatai Financial's IT strategy is to form long-term partnerships with leading technology providers like Itiviti, together with our group's strong R&D capability, to improve our time-to-market for new services enablement with advanced technology stack."
Ofir Gefen, Head of APAC, Itiviti commented: "We congratulate Huatai Financial as the first issuer using the Shanghai-London Stock Connect to tap this new market potential. Itiviti's product flexibility and highly skilled Asia team has allowed such a quick turnaround to meet customer needs. While others retrench, we continue to invest in building a world-class franchise in APAC and here is the proof."
The newly launched Shanghai-London Stock Connect is the first-ever fungible cross-listing mechanism enabling eligible companies listed on the LSE and Shanghai Stock Exchange to issue, list and trade depositary receipts on the counterpart's stock market in accordance with the corresponding laws and regulations.
