Moomoo’s Parent Company Futu Announces Investment Grade Rating Reaffirmed by S&P Global Ratings


Moomoo’s parent company Futu Holdings Limited (Nasdaq: FUTU, “Futu”), a leading tech-driven online brokerage and wealth management platform, announced that its long-term issuer credit rating “BBB-” has been reaffirmed with a stable outlook by major global rating agency Standard & Poor’s (S&P). Meanwhile, S&P also maintained Futu’s “bbb” GCP (group credit profile) rating.

Last year, Futu was granted a BBB- long-term issuer credit rating by S&P, marking the first Hong Kong brokerage to independently receive BBB- rating from S&P.

Being one of the three major global rating agencies, S&P offers third-party forward looking opinions about a company’s relative creditworthiness ranging from AAA to D. Companies rated BBB- or higher by S&P are considered investment-grade, and are believed to have adequate capacity to meet financial commitments and relatively low credit risk.

In its recent report, S&P highlighted Futu’s very strong capitalization, adequate risk controls and expansion strategy on international market, and it expected Futu to maintain the risk appetite, underwriting standards and good loan quality while expanding the business scope and international outreach over the next 24 months.

S&P also underscored Futu’s satisfactory share of about 3% of Hong Kong’s fragmented brokerage market, and its improvements on the diversification of its product offerings and geographic reach. S&P believed that Futu has started to diversify its funding structure and liquidity sources in recent years.

S&P commented in the report that internationalization will be the main strategy for Futu in the next two to three years, as the company is looking to expand the presence in Hong Kong SAR, the U.S., SingaporeAustralia and potentially other new markets. As of the end of first quarter, Futu recorded more than 80% of its newly acquired paying clients from Hong Kong SAR, the United StatesSingapore and other international markets in first quarter this year.

Having established its presence in Hong Kong in 2012, Futu has led the way in the local brokerage industry for almost ten years and its app Futubull is now a household name in Hong Kong. Futu’s registered Hong Kong users number accounted for approximately one third of Hong Kong adults’ population.

Since July 2020, Futu had become the first retail brokerage included in Category A Stock Exchange Participants by the Hong Kong Exchange, ranking among top 14 brokerage houses together with other top tier global investment banks, in terms of market shares in Hong Kong.

Since Futu made its debut in Singapore last year, its flagship app moomoo has quickly become a technology brokerage platform recognized by local investors. As of June 2022, the number of Futu’s Singapore users accounted for more than 20% of the Singapore’s population aged between 20 to 70. In June 2022, Moomoo Financial Singapore Pte. Ltd officially became the first digital brokerage to receive full memberships from Singapore Exchange, strengthening its leading position in the industry.

In the U.S. market, moomoo continues to gain interest from traders who seek better tools to trade like a pro. With strong technology supports, moomoo provides investors with seamless trading experience, timely financial information, and powerful investment analysis tools that used to be available only to institutional investors.

Moomoo also announced its official launch in Australia in March 2022, providing trading access of stocks and ETFs listed in the U.S. and Australia to Australian investors.

We hope to bring moomoo’s advanced features, which have already been validated in the US and Singapore, to every investor in Australia. Our vision is to help all investors with different experience levels improve trading skills, optimize investment strategies and take control of their wealth creation.”

“With one of the highest percentages of direct share ownership in the world, Australia is full of passionate, knowledge-hungry investors wanting greater control over their own wealth creation. According to the ASX investor research report[1], in 2020, Australia had more than 9 million individual investors, most of whom are young. That number is expected to go beyond 10 million in 2022. At the same time, with the rise of the internet and the opening-up of the financial industry, more and more young Australians are entering the investment market, creating an urgent need for a sophisticated yet customer-friendly online investment platform. Moomoo’s launch in Australia meets this need with its award-winning trading app”.
