The Shenzhen Stock Exchange was founded on December 1st 1990, but had been operating in some capacity informally since 1987. The main function of the exchange has been to provide a platform for securities trading, and it is overseen and regulated by the China Securities Regulatory Commission.
Since its founding, the Shenzhen Stock Exchange has been housed in a well-known, famous skyscraper known for its futuristic design, number of elevators and intimidating height. Standing 245.8 meters (49 floors) tall, the building was designed by the firm of Rem Koolhaas, The Office for Metropolitan Architecture. It was constructed by the Second Construction Co., Ltd, of China Construction Third Engineering Bureau, a subsidiary of China State Construction Engineering Corporation. Construction began in 2008 and was completed in 2013. The skyscraper is widely recognized around the world.
The Shenzhen Stock Exchange (SZSE) functions via three boards which support China’s multi-tier system: the Main Board, the SME board, and the ChiNext Market (explained in more detail below). The SME Board was established in 2004, and the ChiNext board was introduced in 2009.
The ChiNext board is an example of the SZSE becoming interested in improving services for stocks in the growing technology industry. This led to the founding of the ChiNext board in 2009, which is a NASDAQ-type exchange for high-growth and high-tech startups, though it is technically open to companies of all sizes.
