The Hong Kong Stock exchange traces its roots back to 1866, but it was until 1891 that the first formal exchange hit the ground running. In 1977, a market crash persuaded authorities to merge all existing exchanges into a single platform called the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong (SEHK). SEHK gained official recognition as an entity in July 1980. Further reforms saw SEHK, the Hong Kong Securities Clearing Company (HKSCC), and Hong Kong Futures Exchange Limited (HKFE) merge and operate under the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, as a holding company. Forbes ranks the HKEX eighth in the world with a market cap of $2.7 trillion. Major companies listed on the exchange include Microsoft, HSBC, Tencent, and Cisco.
