Mr Chow was appointed Chairman at a meeting of the HKEx Board on Tuesday. Pursuant to Section 69 of the Securities and Futures Ordinance, his appointment was subject to the written approval of the HKSAR Chief Executive.
Mr Chow said, “It is an honour to serve as Chairman of HKEx. Hong Kong is a leading international financial centre and HKEx’s markets are pillars of the local economy. I look forward to working closely with my fellow Directors, management, regulators, market participants and other stakeholders to continue HKEx’s success.
