29/11/2011

NYSE Liffe, the global derivatives business of NYSE Euronext (NYX), announced today that it is opening an office in Hong Kong on 1 December 2011. NYSE Technologies already has an office in Hong Kong; and with NYSE Liffe offices in Singapore, Tokyo and now Hong Kong, the Exchange will further develop its derivatives business in the region.

The new Hong Kong office will be headed by Cecelia Zhong, Head of Business Development China, who previously managed NYSE Liffe’s China initiatives from London. Cecelia and her team will further strengthen our strategic exchange alliances in China and Hong Kong; as well as generate business from Chinese investors for NYSE Liffe’s markets.

Garry Jones, Group EVP and Head of Global Derivatives at NYSE Euronext, said: “Today's markets are increasingly interconnected and global. With the expansion of NYSE Liffe’s business in the region, the new Hong Kong office not only highlights our commitment to the region as a group, but it will enhance our service to Members and customers; as well as develop relationships with new clients. Our local presence will also reinforce our franchise as we advance our business partnerships in mainland China and Hong Kong.”
