J.P. Morgan launches S&P 500 Warrants in Hong Kong


Hong Kong, September 1, 2020 – In a first for the Hong Kong warrants market, J.P. Morgan has issued derivative warrants linked to the Standard and Poor’s 500 Index (S&P 500), one of the major benchmarks of the U.S. stock market. The new derivative warrants will begin trading on the Hong Kong Exchange on September 2, offering investors broader investment opportunities to gain exposure to the U.S. market during local trading hours.

“Volatility has risen significantly since the beginning of the year and investors are always looking for opportunities to diversify their portfolios. The debut of the S&P 500 warrants, together with the Nasdaq warrants we just launched last week, provide local eligible investors another alternative to gain exposure to the volatility in the world’s largest stock market,” said Cedric Cheung, Head of Listed Structured Products Sales for Asia at J.P. Morgan.

The newly-issued warrants will be linked to the movements of E-mini S&P 500 Futures, covering the full trading hours of the Hong Kong market.

“As the leading issuer of derivatives warrants in Hong Kong, we are committed to providing investors with wider variety of instruments for different market conditions and risk appetites,” said Cheung.  

J.P. Morgan is the No. 1* player in cumulative sales of warrants for seven consecutive years in Hong Kong. The firm expects to introduce at least 15 U.S. indices-linked warrants on the Hong Kong Exchange this year.

摩根大通推出全新美股標普500指數認股證

 

香港,2020年9月1日——摩根大通將於香港發行與標普500指數(下稱「標指」)掛鈎的認股證,讓投資者在本港交易時段內同時捕捉美國股市的投資機會。

首對標指認購及認沽證日前已獲准發行,並將於9月2日正式上市。今次發行將代表著標指認股證首次在本港登場。

摩根大通亞洲上市衍生產品銷售部主管張智卓表示:「今年以來,環球股市波動性顯著上升,美股市場作為全球市值最大的證券市場,更加吸引本港投資者的目光。摩根大通上周已率先在本港推出與納斯達克100指數掛鈎的認股證,初步市場反應不俗,今次再加推標指相關產品,可望為投資者開拓更多的投資機遇。本港投資者以港股證券戶口便可參與有槓桿效應的標指及納指認股證交易,操作相對簡單方便。」

張智卓又指,首對標指認購及認沽證的行使價分別為3700點及3200點,實際槓桿介乎5至7倍#,年期約為半年。產品將追縱E-mini標指期貨的價格變動,投資者在使用認購證部署相關資產上升之餘,亦可利用認沽證對沖外圍股市下跌的風險,增加投資組合的靈活性。

張智卓預計,市場對於美股指數相關產品將有一定需求,並計劃於今年內共推出至少15隻標指及納指認股證。

摩根大通為本港最活躍的窩輪發行人之一,憑藉其積極的產品報價及穩定的流通量,其認股證產品於2013年至2019年間,連續7年累積銷量第一*。摩根大通一直致力於為投資者提供更豐富的產品選擇,目前與海外股指掛鈎的產品還包括日經平均指數認股證。

摩根大通將繼續積極研究擴闊產品種類,以推動本港衍生工具市場發展,為投資者拓展新機遇。
