Hong Kong stocks rise for fourth day on capital inflows from mainland


Hong Kong shares finished firmer on Tuesday, with the benchmark index rising for a fourth consecutive day as investors continued searching for high yields.

The mood in the Hong Kong market has been buoyed by a flood of capital pouring in from the mainland since last week, as investors there actively hunt for yields in a low-interest rate environment.

Chinese investors are also trying to get a head start on buying Hong Kong shares ahead of the expected November launch of a cross-border investment link between Shenzhen and Hong Kong.

Some analysts pointed out that investors have become cautious after the key index hit a series of one-year highs in recent days.

Risk Warning:

Please remember that financial investments may rise or fall and past performance does not guarantee future performance in respect of income or capital growth; you may not get back the amount you invested.

There is no obligation to purchase anything but, if you decide to do so, you are strongly advised to consult a professional adviser before making any investment decisions.
