Straits Times Index (STI) Quarterly Review September 2018

FTSE Russell announces that there will be one change to the constituents of the Straits Times Index (STI), following the September quarterly review. Dairy Farm International Holdings will be added to the index and, as a result, StarHub will be excluded.

The STI reserve list, comprising the five highest ranking non-constituents of the STI by market capitalisation, will be (in order of size) Suntec REIT, Mapletree Commercial Trust, Keppel REIT and Mapletree Logistics Trust and Mapletree Industrial Trust. Stocks on the reserve list will replace any constituents that become ineligible as a result of corporate actions, before the next review. A full list of STI constituents can be found on the website.

The next review will take place in December 2018.

RE: Singapore Exchange (SGX)
I too, was surprised to see a ~42.8% vote against the RSP resolution. The "absolute power" of the Remuneration Committee to award the RSP and also some of the issues bought up by Prof Mak in the later part of the article about lowering the benchmark comparisons (not the first time they did it) probably contributed to it.

SGX makes good disclosures, but needs more transparency on share plans

On Sept 20, the Singapore Exchange (SGX) held its annual general meeting (AGM), which, according to news reports, was dominated by questions about listed companies suing their own shareholders for defamation.

What appears to have escaped attention is that at the AGM, 42.76 per cent of the shares that voted rejected the proposed restricted share plan (RSP). This is a very high percentage of shares voting against any resolution.

RE: Singapore Exchange (SGX)
SGX is clearly more than just a securities market

It is growing its overseas footprint, setting up new offices in major cities and inking numerous MOUs

RE: Singapore Exchange (SGX)
The derivative business is definitely a great way to punch above your weight. But regulatory risks like what happened to the Indian Niffy contracts situation cannot be ruled out.

Betting on SGX? Better metrics than many listed gaming peers

SIR, would you like to make a wager - or hedge, as professional investors like to call it - on Singapore?

That may be quite a bet to make. Singapore's equity market and economy are a tad too small, with growth maturing.

Not to worry, sir! We can offer you China, India, Japan, Indonesia, Taiwan, the US dollar, Chinese yuan, Indian rupee and much more. If that still does not cater to your tastes, we can extend to you more exotic offerings: iron ore, coal, shipping freight, petrochemicals and rubber. You need not be bullish, you can even be bearish. You can participate in this suite of products at the convenience of a single deposit - or margin. So, come on in and place your... hedge.

RE: Singapore Exchange (SGX)
The derivatives market for SGX is growing with a clear path. Any bull market or volatility in the asia markets are going to give its derivative volumes are great boast.

That said, the equity fund raising portion of this business is tepid and getting worst. While RegCo has done some work, but more work needs to be urgently executed. The long arm of the law, needs to get shorter.

SGX taps MyInfo to Roll Out Paperless CDP Account Opening Service

Singapore Exchange (SGX)’s Central Depository (CDP) account opening service has gone digital, enabling greater convenience and security for retail customers.

Customers looking to open an Individual CDP account can now apply and submit their applications online, without the need to provide paper documents.

For Singapore citizens and residents, they can leverage MyInfo (myinfo.gov.sg) – a government digital service that allows users to manage their personal data for online transactions – for a seamless experience. With the customer’s consent, CDP can automatically access details from his or her MyInfo profile to open a new CDP account, bypassing the need for the customer to submit personal details and supporting documentation.

For applicants without MyInfo profiles, they can still open a CDP account online and easily upload soft copies of supporting documentation. To start investing, a brokerage account would also need to be opened. Customers may approach their brokers, if they plan to open CDP and trading accounts concurrently.
