A move in the right direction, IMO.

SGX mandates minimum allocation of Mainboard IPOs to retail investors

Singapore Exchange (SGX) will mandate all Mainboard IPO companies to allocate to retail investors, at least 5%, or S$50 million, whichever is lower, of their offer size. The introduction of the minimum IPO allocation is aimed at facilitating greater retail participation in Singapore’s equities market. The new rules on the minimum allocation are effective 2 May 2017.

A small case from MAS, amid the bigger case of penny stock.

MAS takes civil penalty action against divorced couple for unauthorised trading

SINGAPORE (March 8): The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) has obtained a civil penalty judgement against two individuals, Wang Boon Heng and Foo Jee Chin, for carrying out unauthorised share trading in 2007.

A civil penalty action is not a criminal action, and does not attract criminal sanctions as it is designed to complement sanctions and provide what MAS terms a “nuanced approach” to combat market misconduct.
