Why did the SFC kill HSBC's Stockmax?
Two years after the SFC shut retail investors out HSBC's automated trading system, an SFC announcement gives some indication of what happened, but still leaves retail investors wondering why a pioneering service which offered potential price improvement and competition for HKEx's monopoly stock market was not allowed.

Selina Kwok Mok Wai-hing v HSBC Private Bank (Suisse) SA
HK Court of First Instance, 21-Jun-2012
The daughter of the founder of a brokerage unsuccessfully sues HSBC, which estimates that she lost a net US$5.3m on accumulator contracts. The judgment provides an interesting behind-the-scenes narrative of how a bank's salesperson (or "relationship manager") discusses clients.

StockMax and competition for HKEx
We look at the implications of HSBC's proposed StockMax dark pool with retail investor participation.

We propose measures to achieve this while preserving fair and orderly markets. (7-Aug-2011)

We urge shareholders to vote against the re-election of Mr William Aldinger and adoption of the remuneration report, as a protest at the obscene compensation arrangements and the $41.3m pay-off involved in Mr Aldinger's non-termination as CEO of Household when HSBC acquired it.
