Wilshire taps Hang Seng to expand product and data offering in Greater China
By combining Wilshire’s technological expertise in data analytics with HSIL’s deep regional insights, the collaboration aims to offer a more comprehensive and customized set of tools for institutional investors in Greater China
Navigating through turbulent global markets and disruptive technologies, institutional investors in Greater China have increasingly been seeking diversified index solutions.
Addressing this trend, Wilshire Indexes, a leading global index platform, has announced a strategic collaboration with Hang Seng Indexes Company (‘HSIL’) to provide a suite of enriched product offerings aimed at capturing emerging global investment opportunities for investors in mainland China and Hong Kong.
Product extension and enhanced Data & Analytics
This new collaboration builds upon a previous product partnership involving the Hang Seng Climate Change 1.5°C Target Index in 2022. The new joint initiative aims to expand the scope of available products to cover both regional and global markets. According to insiders, the partnership is aimed at leveraging each company’s unique strengths—HSIL’s deep understanding of the Greater China investment landscape and Wilshire Indexes’ robust global data analytics capabilities.
Specifically, the partnership aims to enhance HSIL’s capabilities in two major ways:
Product Extension: The collaboration will leverage HSIL’s in-depth knowledge of institutional investment appetites in mainland China and Hong Kong to develop a broader range of product offerings.
Enhanced Data & Analytics: Wilshire Indexes will bring its technological know-how to develop IT and customization solutions for HSIL, aimed at broadening its data coverage and strengthening its analytics capabilities.
Complex regulatory landscapes and unpredictable market conditions for institutional investors
Mark Makepeace, CEO of Wilshire Indexes, noted, “Investors are increasingly facing disruptive challenges due to the changing dynamics of global markets. We are excited to partner with Hang Seng Indexes Company to help asset managers and institutional investors access and deploy a range of custom index capabilities to better analyze and capture emerging investment opportunities.”
Anita Mo, CEO of Hang Seng Indexes, emphasized, “We are delighted to team up with Wilshire Indexes to advance our capabilities and provide investors with comprehensive index solutions. This collaboration also reflects our commitment to becoming the trusted index partner for overseas investors looking to capitalize on investment opportunities in China.”
The partnership comes at a time when institutional investors are navigating complex regulatory landscapes and unpredictable market conditions. By combining Wilshire’s technological expertise in data analytics with HSIL’s deep regional insights, the collaboration aims to offer a more comprehensive and customized set of tools for institutional investors in Greater China.
The alliance between Wilshire Indexes and Hang Seng Indexes Company promises to offer a broader and more sophisticated range of index products, setting the stage for further innovation in the investment community of Greater China.
