Key Highlights

  • China plans to introduce a new Stock Exchange in Beijing, according to China's president, Xi Jinping.
  • The new Stock Exchange will focus on "innovative SMEs", which includes startup companies.
  • China presently has 2 other stock exchanges — one in Shenzhen and another in Shanghai — both catering to larger firms.

Why It Matters

  • The establishment of Beijing's new stock exchange will not only provide additional fundraising avenues to smaller Chinese companies, but also provide a liquidity platform for investors.
  • This move also comes as more Chinese companies seek to go public in the United States such as Alibaba,, among others.
  • China is also introducing new rules to prevent local firms with large amounts of consumer data from going public outside of the country.
