The Guide to Trading in
Asia-Pacific Markets

Learn how the structure of this growing market affects your market data and trading needs

The maturing markets of Asia-Pacific offer enduring growth and opportunities to global firms that can navigate the countries’ complexities. To tap into this growth, it is crucial to understand the different markets, how they compete, and how they might complement each other in an overall global strategy. Exegy’s Guide to Trading in Asia-Pacific Markets helps you find and access APAC’s opportunities.

Explore APAC’s regional powerhouses

The Guide to Trading in Asia-Pacific Markets surveys the APAC landscape to find its most important players. We begin with China, APAC’s largest and hardest-to-access market. The guide introduces the Stock Connect, a program that allows foreign investors to access mainland China’ liquidity through the Hong Kong and London stock exchanges.

We look more broadly at Hong Kong, and how the stamp duty on share transfers affects the market structure there. In Japan, learn about the Japan Exchange Group, which controls the country’s largest equities and derivatives markets, as well alternative trading venues such as Japannext. The guide shows how the Singapore Exchange has differentiated itself through a suite of derivative and index products.

And the guide explores the Australian market—from ASX, the country’s largest exchange, to Chi-X, a smaller venue with a growing impact. We look at how Australia’s superannuation program drives a national demand for investment products and growing interest in indices and exchange-traded products.

Emerging APAC markets—and how to access them

Understanding APAC isn’t just about getting into its established markets. There are burgeoning opportunities in countries such as Taiwan, India, and South Korea, not to mention smaller markets such as Indonesia and Vietnam. However, trading there requires an understanding of complex market and regulatory structures.

The Guide to Trading in Asia-Pacific Markets explains how many firms are gaining first access through popular country and regional indices, and the derivatives and ETFs based on them.

Strategies for market data infrastructure in APAC

The fragmented nature of the APAC requires careful planning for firms looking for their first foothold in the region. We compare the relative benefits of building infrastructure yourself and vendor solutions.
