Hong Kong is one of the major financial cities in the world and has the 3rd largest stock exchange in Asia after Tokyo and Shanghai. Making and spending money is a passion of Hong Kong and is reflected in the big shiny buildings, sports cars and model only clubs crowded in the small island.

To make the money, people love to trade securities. Online trading has remained stagnant for a long time, mainly due to the high barriers to entry in terms of cost and skill. Now Hong Kong start-up 8securities is looking to shake things up by launching an online trading portal that is simple, customizable and social. The team announced the product back in October at TechCrunch Beijing Disrupt and will launch in February.
