HONG KONG, Oct. 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Futu Holdings Limited (“FUTU” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: FUTU), a leading tech-driven online brokerage platform in China, today announced that the Company's ticker symbol on the Nasdaq Global Select Market has changed to “FUTU” from “FHL”. Trading under the new ticker symbol began on Thursday, October 17, 2019.
No actions are needed from FUTU’s current shareholders relative to the ticker symbol change.
Mr. Leaf Hua Li, Futu’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are pleased that the ‘FUTU’ ticker finally became available given that it clearly more appropriately reflects our brand. Our company’s name has several meanings that reflect the Company’s philosophy. In Chinese, “Futu” means “the road to wealth;” in English, ‘F’ and ‘T’ represent Fortune and Treasure, while “Futu” is also the abbreviation of "For U, To U," which reflects our company’s values and mission of always putting our customers first.”
A few months ago, Futu reached a new milestone in its offerings on wealth management solutions by launching Money Plus, the Company’s online mutual fund distribution platform. Investors can now seamlessly integrate their mutual fund account with a brokerage account, managing stock trading and wealth management all at once on Futu’s platform. The goal of this integration is to cater to investors’ increasing needs for broader wealth management as they accumulate more wealth and become more financially sophisticated. Money Plus now offers a variety of money market, fixed income and equity funds to provide more rewarding and diverse investment services for all clients. With Money Plus, Futu continues to leverage on its advanced technology and cost-effective brokerage services to expand the business as a premium, one-stop asset allocation platform.
