Access to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKEX) is here.

From Friday, March 25, SelfWealth will be providing Australians with access to the HKEX. And to celebrate, we’re holding a special race where the 20 winners win their share of $20,000 AUD.

To kick start your investment in the lucrative HKEX, the world’s sixth largest share market by capitalization (yep, bigger than the ASX), we’re giving away cold, hard, cash. This is our way of acknowledging the Chinese tradition, of blessing someone with the gift of cash in a red envelope. In Chinese culture, the colour red is associated with energy, happiness, and good luck. And winning the first prize of $5000, is great luck if you ask us.

To enter all you have to do is to get 10 mates to use your referral code to open a SelfWealth trading account, make sure you have added HKEX to your own account and then transfer $50 HKD (a smidge less than $10).

The catch is that you have to do it quickly.

The race begins on Friday, March 25, and goes for two weeks. Over those two weeks, we’ll keep an eye out for the first 20 people whose referral code has successfully registered 10 new accounts, and then award prize money in tiers of speed. (Naturally, terms and conditions apply. See below)

Those who share the market fastest will take a greater share of the winnings. The tiers are as follows:

  • The first person to refer 10 friends will receive $5000 AUD added into their Hong Kong trading account
  • Winners 2, 3, 4 and 5 will each receive $2,000
  • Winners 6, 7, 8 and 9 will each receive $1,000
  • Winners 10, 11, 12, and 13 will each receive $500
  • Winners 14, 15, and 16 will each receive $200
  • Winners 17, 18, 19, and 20 will each receive $100

An important note is that registration isn’t instant. Once you’ve sent 10 friends the referral code, it can take a day or two for them to get all their ducks in a row. Just as you did when signing up to SelfWealth, they’ll need to get their identification verified but this is a streamlined process. Your mates will have to set up an ASX trading account before diversifying into international stocks such as HKEX also US, they will also receive 5 free trades to use on the ASX for signing up.
