Also, no fees will be charged for the listing or trading of bonds (excluding convertible bonds) on SZSE, so that all fees that could be removed are exempted, Besides, funds will be exempted from the listing fees for two years in a row, while the trading fee rate will be cut to a lower level, and the traffic fees for fund trading will be exempted as well. Moreover, the companies under SZSE introduce the measures to significantly cut or exempt fees for the SZSE-listed companies and market participants (particularly the small and medium-sized institutions), a move expected to boost fintech levels and lower the cost of market participants.
According to an official in charge at SZSE, earnestly following the guiding principles of the Central Economic Work Conference and continuously implementing the policy package aimed to stabilize the economy, SZSE has further leveraged the role of the capital market in serving real economy and energized the vitality of market participants. By stepping up the fee reduction and expanding the scope of beneficiaries through the roll-out of combined fee reduction measures, SZSE has boosted the sense of gain among listed companies, investors and market participants and shored up market confidence. Next, SZSE will give further play to the role of the capital market as a platform, stay true to its original aspiration of serving real economy and elevate service quality and efficiency to new heights, so as to contribute to the high-quality development of the economy.
