When the Hang Seng Index was launched, how many constituent stocks were included?
The Hang Seng Index (HSI) was created by Dr. Ho Sin Hang, one of Hang Seng’s founders, and Sir Lee Guo Wei, the former chairman. It was originally created to measure stock market trends for internal use, but subsequently published to the public on 24th November 1969 after being observed to reflect market conditions. Initially, 33 listed company stocks were selected to be the constituent stocks (i.e. today’s "blue chip stocks"). The closing point on the first day was 158.5. The Hang Seng Index is an important indicator of the Hong Kong stock market performance, and is considered the barometer of the Hong Kong stock market. By the end of December 2022, its number of constituent stocks has been increased to 76.
Always staying in touch with economic development and investor needs, the Hang Seng Indexes Co., Ltd. has launched indexes of different categories such as ESG-related indexes and smart beta indexes. Today, the Hang Seng Index, the Hang Seng China Enterprises Index and the Hang Seng Tech Index are positioned as the three flagship indexes in Hong Kong.
