Steen Jakobsen, chief economist at Saxo Bank, explains why the opening of the Stock Connect between Shenzhen and Hong Kong is good for traders and investors.
He says that global investors will now get access to China’s tech sector and MSCI could finally add China to its emerging-market indices.
It marks another significant move in large reforms for the Chinese economy, says Jakobsen. The trading link’s opening date hasn’t yet been announced.
