Hong Kong’s main share index finished down slightly on Wednesday as a rally in financial firms failed to offset the slumping service and information technology shares.

The Hang Seng index fell 0.4 per cent, to 22,585.84 points, while the China Enterprises Index gained 1.2 per cent, to 11,269.43 points.

Among the most actively traded stocks on Hong Kong’s main board were AVIC International Holding HK Ltd, down 3.0 per cent at HK$0.65, CCT Land Holdings Ltd, unchanged at HK$0.02, and Bank of China, up 2.7 percent at HK$4.14.

Chinese investment flowing from Shanghai into Hong Kong through the mutual market access pilot programme took up 0.33 billion yuan ($53.3 million) of the 10.5 billion yuan daily quota.

Total trading volume of companies included in the HSI index was 2.6 billion shares.
