Top 50 companies of China in the Shanghai Composite (SSE 50) index 2021

In highly developed economies, the largest companies always play a significant role in their economy, and not only. Here you will find the 50 largest Chinese listed companies included in the Shanghai Composite Index, along with a brief description.

China has established laws and rules in its system that companies must first obtain approval from the State Council’s Securities Management Department before they can list their shares on China’s main stock exchange – the Shanghai Stock Exchange – SSE. Provided they comply with the regulations set by the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) regarding size, age and profitability, Chinese companies can then raise capital from stock investors who buy their shares, which are then continuously traded on SSE.

The Shanghai Composite Index

Also known as the SSE Index, it is a stock exchange index of all stocks (A Shares and Series B Shares) traded on the Shanghai Stock Exchange. SSE Indices are all calculated using a Paasche weighted composite price index formula. 

 Current index = Current total market cap of constituents × Base Value / Base Period

The SSE index is widely recognized as a benchmark on the Chinese stock exchange. The SSE Index is calculated as a composite index weighted against the baseline established during the 1990 SSE reform.

As the main SSE index includes all companies listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange, narrower indices have also been created to include only larger companies. The other key indices, SSE 180, SSE 50 and SSE 20, therefore only reflect the performance of the largest 180, 50 and 20 companies listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange.

Conclusion:

Historically centralized administration and manufacturing in China has resulted in many of the largest Chinese companies listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange being founded or spun off from public organizations or state-owned enterprises. Occasionally SOEs set up a separate branch to adequately meet CSRC requirements and go public and better manage the transition to private equity.
