香港-倫敦同盟

Bloomberg: Osborne Says London, Hong Kong Be Yuan Trading Centers

呢個構想,係英國財相Osborne所講,呢個構想,由小弟較早前喺香港經濟日報講嘅,香港-倫敦股票交易所同盟類似。

Nov. 10 (Bloomberg) — Hong Kong and London should become centers of trading in the Chinese currency as the U.K. and China work to strengthen economic and trade ties, British Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne said.

“London, as a partner of Hong Kong, is developing new Asian business, including internationalization of the renminbi,” he said at a luncheon in Hong Kong today. “There are massive opportunities for London through Hong Kong to play a part in that.”

黃世澤:港交所宜謀併購 抗新澳結盟

倫敦和香港法制相當近似,而且不少香港或英國公司,像渣打銀行、滙豐銀行、英國保誠保險,都英港兩地同時掛牌,若然香港考慮與倫敦證券交易所結盟,不單開啟歐洲公司來港集資大門,亦為中國公司走出去提供方便之門,這一方面就可以拋離上海和新加坡兩個競爭對手。

呢個係一個極度戰略合理嘅提案,事實上,香港-倫敦同盟嘅基礎,係英國同香港共有法制基礎,以及英國本來就有唔少重量級公司喺香港上市,唔少英國大公司,事實上亦係英港共治(特別係HSBC),喺香港呢個地方,英國人有把握玩,上海係另一個星球嚟,佢地唔會走到一個佢地唔熟嘅主場打波,呢個亦係防止London Stock Exchange落入歐洲或者美國佬手中嘅最有效方法。

點子提到,如果真係港倫同盟,應該要找清BN(O)條數,小弟反而覺得,英國佬遲早要找數,而且係找咗BN(O)條數對佢有著數。

1. 雖然FX同股市,甚至衍生工具,好多都係程式買賣盤,但始終要有熟悉人民幣市場,以及中國同香港市場嘅人揸盤。

2. 根據依家歐盟嘅規例,除咗嚟自美國嘅投資經理,如果係嚟自其他Non-EEA國家嘅投資經理調嚟英國做嘢,FSA係要逐單批,而且針對非歐盟人士喺英國投資市場嘅限制,係水蛇春咁長,相當大鑊。

FSA: Non-EEA investment managers

對非歐盟人士入嚟英國,入境資格唔係問題,呢個睇Home Office點批,Home Office可以將香港金融專才用Tier-1請晒佢地入境都得,而問題係成堆香港專才如果無法喺英國本土得到EEA身份,成個香港-倫敦同盟係玩唔起。就算香港有一批英國讀書變成BC嘅人,一批BN(HK)A 1990, 1997下變成BC嘅人,都未必夠人才玩。

依家出現勁膠情況係,德國,法國、瑞士金融機構可以請持BN(O)嘅人,當係EEA交易員(只要有歐洲國家發紙出嚟認佢地係EEA就係EEA人),考番相關牌照就可以入嚟倫敦市場,或者自己喺德國、法國市場玩中國相關資產,而英國自己唔可以咁做,英國佬唔似會喺呢方面玩番自己。

更重要係呢樣嘢

The Landsbanki Freezing Order 2008

呢份通告小弟引用過一次,再留意以下內容:

2. The relevant articles of the Order apply to any person in the UK or any person elsewhere who is:
(a) a British citizen, a British overseas territories citizen, a British Overseas citizen, a person who under the British Nationality Act 1981 is a British subject, a British National (Overseas) or a British protected person; or
(b) a body incorporated or constituted under the law of any part of the UK including a Scottish partnership.

由保障英國金融安全角度,如果英國真係要搞香港-倫敦同盟玩一手,就一定要找數,找咗數就更理直氣壯。呢個亦係英國發明BN(O)呢個怪物嘅原因,絕對進可攻退可守。雖然依家都可以咁做,但各大金融機構,唔會甘心只係喺香港做交易,況且香港同倫敦戰略優勢,亦同時區有關,做到接近24小時交易,只係俾BN(O)受英國反恐法監管,但去唔到英國做trade係此路不通。

或者咁講,如果突然有一日,保守黨都改變對BN(O)嘅態度,唔係有人大發善心,而係一場金融市場血戰,將會喺香港展開。

    What’s the market value of HKEx and LSE respectively? Who is/are the majority shareholder(s) of LSE? And is there any other target for HKEx to acquire or merge with, apart from LSE?

  2. CL

    我覺得英國並不會去為 BNO 平權,原因很簡單:不想得罪中國。假如香港人知道移居英國是一條退路,一旦香港發生類似六四的鎮壓,你估會有幾多人會逃走去英國?冇一百萬都可能有幾十萬。英國如果公開為 BNO 平權,等同和中國去搶香港的人力資源,中國一定唔會制。我估計未來這種奇怪的情況依然會繼續,就是 BNO 會被更多 EU 國家承認為英國公民,除了英國之外。

    To CL:

    中國官員要走資時,就打另一個算盤。香港-倫敦同盟對中國走資有著數,而平權是一定要做,而且依家明顯只會著數咗德、瑞、荷等國。

    CL:

    I don’t think UK will be afraid of China as the whole Europe is change rapidly in the past ten years. Besides, BC is what BN(O) holders should have but not we cry for.

    Hi Martin,

    You said that the current situation benefited Gernmany, Netherlands and France. Sometime, I do think UK Government is stubborn as EU citizens (exclude BC) is not suitable for UK commerical industry but BN(O) holders. Of course, BN(O)’s campaigne cannot be stopped until it is solved.

  5. S

    How much would it cost for HKEx to secure an alliance with LSE? And is there any prospective ally apart from LSE? E.g. Toronto Stock Exchange? Or perhaps Bermuda or Bombay? Or even Osaka, Nagoya or Taipei?

  6. v

    the taiwan stock exchange is rather different from hkse.

  7. S

    Btw can HKEx buy Kuala Lumpur’s and Jakarta’s stock exchanges (as hostile bids to Singapore Exchange)?
