Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited recently signed a long term agreement with MSCI to list their indices in Hong Kong rather than in Singapore at SGX, which had listed the contracts for decades.

John Lothian of John Lothian News interviewed HKEX executive Kevin Rideout over Zoom on Thursday to ask him about HKEX’s plans for the MSCI index suite. John asked him how the deal occurred, the audience HKEX is targeting for the products, and why these indices are important to global investors.

John asked Rideout how HKEX is supporting the MSCI indices, which he said involves, among other strategies, individual webinars with traders all over the world.

SGX is countering the MSCI change by moving to FTSE Russell contracts. How this competition plays out will be one of the biggest battles in Asia in the coming months and years.
