iMarkets' Innovation In Action -turning complexity into advantageSM
iMarkets' Platform

iMarkets, an affiliated company of CK Hutchison Holdings Limited, was founded with the mission of developing the structured investment products ("SIP") market in Asia. To this end, iMarkets aims to provide value-added services to market participants through a neutral, client-driven, online B2B marketplace with straight-through-processing capabilities.

The SIP market
While growth of the SIP market has been phenomenal over the past few years, participation has been limited to high net worth individuals, via the conduit of a small number of sophisticated institutions. This lack of broad market participation is mainly due to the lack of connected product information; limited secondary trading and large unit transaction thresholds. We aim to accelerate the growth of the SIP market, overcoming these inefficiencies by providing unprecedented liquidity and depth.

Our innovations
The interactive trading platform of iMarkets incorporates the standardisation efficiency of an exchange while at the same time providing investors with the flexibility of customisation. We have created two major innovations. First, the client-driven process begins with the specification of an investor's risk/return preference. The platform has the structuring capability to identify the best-priced SIP, matching the investor's specific risk/return preference. The platform also provides execution capabilities to offer instantaneous product delivery and initial hedging. Second, our patent-pending technology is capable of breaking complex SIPs into eight simple and manageable financial building blocks. These include bonds, underlying securities of different asset classes, call and put options (both long and short sides). The platform detaches the derivative components that are embedded in the SIP and transfers the trading risks from the issuer to the derivative risk taker. This unique feature of risk transfer encourages a greater number of financial institutions to become SIP issuers without deviating from their core competence.

Powerful Hub
In summary, iMarkets integrates the strength of investment banks, private banks, commercial banks, stockbrokers and other market players into one powerful hub. Led by a strong parent company and an experienced management team, iMarkets endeavours to excel in the paradigm of investment world.

Analysis and information have not been independently verified, and any trade executed on the basis of these information are taken at the investors' own risks. Investors are advised to have sufficient knowledge and experience in financial and business matters to evaluate the merits and risks of investing in any of these Products, and should be able to bear the risks of an investment.

The information on this site were obtained from sources believe to be reliable. iMarkets Ltd. makes no express or implied representations or warranties concerning the completeness or accuracy or otherwise of these information and accept no responsibility or liability whatsoever for any loss or damage arising from these information.

The price and income of anyof the Products referenced in this site may experience upward or downward movements, and may even become valueless. There is an inherent risk that losses may be incurred rather than profit made as a result of buying and selling these Products. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future performance.

The risk of loss in trading futures contracts or options can be substantial. In some circumstances, you may sustain losses in excess of your initial margin funds. Placing contingent orders, such as "stop-loss" or "stop-limit" orders, will not necessarily achieve the desired results. Market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. You may be called upon at short notice to deposit additional margin funds. If the required funds are not provided within the prescribed time, your position may be liquidated. You will remain liable for any resulting deficit in your account. You should therefore study and understand futures contracts and options before you trade and carefully consider whether such trading is suitable in the light of your own financial position and investment objectives.
