Singapore Exchange (SGX)

RE: Singapore Exchange (SGX)
Very sad. Local tech start-ups don't want to list here. SGX try so hard to go global but no business, has to resort to getting the s-chips back here again.

But Brunei has closer historical and cultural affinity with Malaysia, and to a lesser extent Indonesia, than Singapore. So it should not come as a surprise that Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam is raising money from KL. Perhaps they are seeking to expand their business into Sabah and Sarawak, and their IPO in KL would be viewed favourably by Malaysian regulators.

Owners of Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam probably also believe that Malaysian investors will view them more favourably than Singapore investors, and give them a better valuation. Hong Leong Finance is a Singapore 'bank' and Singapore investors didn't even give HLF a good valuation. This bank is slightly smaller than HLF, and far from the mind space of Singapore investors. I'm not so sure Singapore investors will be excited by this offering.

Based on the preliminary info, it is a global IPO, or in other words, not only targeting domestic investors. Bursa was not in favor by foreign investors now, due to BN recent control, and the valuation of MYR.

Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam was formed through the merger of Islamic Bank of Brunei and Islamic Development Bank of Brunei in 2005.

Being an Islamic bank, to them, where to list, could be a pretty straight forward decision.

Malaysia is a much more sophisticated and established Islamic finance centre than Singapore.

Chinese Backers Planning Singapore's Third Derivatives Exchange

Talks on details for venue at early stage and may change
Apex would be third derivatives bourse in Asian city-state

Singapore may be set to get a third derivatives exchange, this time backed by China. If the new bourse, which would be called Apex, goes ahead, it would be operated by Asia Investment Pte, according to people with knowledge of the matter. Asia Investment is majority-owned by former China Financial Futures Exchange and Dalian Commodity Exchange chief Eugene Zhu Yuchen, with a minor stake held by the firm of hedge fund manager Ge Weidong, according to corporate records in the city-state.
