“Futu’s global expansion further expedited in the third quarter. In Singapore, Futu officially launched fund products in the quarter and continued to expand the categories of trading products to meet the diversified investment needs of Singapore clients. Meanwhile, Futu is dedicated to investor education in Singapore and has invested substantial resources. During the quarter, 249 new videos and infographics were produced, covering 40 courses and topics,” Futu mentioned.
Futu has a strong presence in Hong Kong. During the first three quarters of 2021, almost 70% of the company’s net increase in paying clients were from Hong Kong and Singapore. Moreover, the third quarter saw a sharp increase in Hong Kong-based clients and registrations.
“Futu’s market penetration rate in Hong Kong has been rising steadily. According to the latest population statistics from the Census and Statistics Department, Futu’s number of users now account for about one-third of Hong Kong’s adult population and continues to reinforce its status as an industry leader. Per the open data, Futu’s monthly market share in Hong Kong stock trading has exceeded the lower limit of the market share range of Category A SEHK Participants since July 2020. Therefore, it can be reasonably deducted that Futu has entered the ranks of Category A SEHK Participants,” the company added.
