HONG KONG -- A prevailing risk-off sentiment and a much quieter financial market dragged down the earnings of the only stock exchange in Hong Kong.

For the six months ended in June, Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing reported a 27% year-on-year decline in net profit to 2.99 billion Hong Kong dollars ($390 million). Its top line dropped 18% to HK$5.63 billion.
