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.

Singapore Exchange Said to Mull Tie-Ups as Deals Grow Harder

Even as regulators crack down on yet another round of consolidation among exchange operators, at least one major bourse is still keen to pursue deals.

Singapore Exchange Ltd., which runs Southeast Asia’s largest stock and derivatives market, has in recent months held exploratory talks about possible tie-ups with overseas exchange operators, people familiar with the matter said.

Discussions with parties including Nasdaq Inc. and CME Group Inc. have ranged from potential collaborations to the sale of a stake in the company or even a full merger, the people said, asking not to be identified as the details aren’t public.

SGX, with a market value of about $5.9 billion, has been weighing its options as rivals attempt to consolidate across the industry. An outright sale would be complicated as cross-border deals between exchange operators attract intense scrutiny from regulators, the people said. European Union regulators on Wednesday blocked Deutsche Boerse AG’s $14 billion takeover of London Stock Exchange Group Plc, adding to a long history of failed merger attempts between bourses.

RE: Singapore Exchange (SGX)
I had always thought the self regulatory function was some kind of self comforting talk. A move away actually kinda proves that it isnt working?

Tan Boon Gin as CEO, sounds about right i suppose. And Prof Tan has to give up 5 directorships at listed companies - most probably he will be compensated similarly like what the current chairman is having.

SGX forms new regulatory unit; names Prof Tan Cheng Han as first chairman

The MOU will touch on financial and commodity markets as well, with SPDB exploring opportunities in gold futures on SGX.

Singapore Exchange Said to Be Near Deal With Regulator for IPOs

by Andrea Tan  and Joyce Koh
May 23, 2017, 9:01 AM GMT+8 Updated on May 23, 2017, 5:37 PM GMT+8

Singapore Exchange Ltd. is nearing a deal with the city’s technology regulator to develop a system designed to encourage local startups to list on the bourse, according to people familiar with the matter.

Under the agreement, the bourse operator would help pair technology companies with investors with the aim of securing their listing in the city-state, the people said. SGX and the Infocomm Media Development Authority are close to finalizing the accord, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the talks are private.

Stock exchanges around the world are competing for IPOs as the fight for global capital intensifies. SGX’s tie-up with the regulator will deepen the exchange’s so-called sector approach, with four industries, including technology, the focus of its listings strategy. The move also comes as companies with Singapore roots including Razer Inc. and Sea Ltd., Southeast Asia’s most valuable startup formerly known as Garena, are said to be considering listing in Hong Kong or the U.S.
