At present, many Mainland information vendors receive HKEx data via third parties.

The MMDH Founding Members will participate in joint marketing efforts with HKEx to promote its market data infrastructure on the Mainland and their services. In addition, the Founding Members are entitled to other benefits, including additional free trial terminals for marketing of HKEx market data to their customers.
