BOOSTING RESEARCH
 
In September 2003, the stock-broking community received a boost from the SGX-MAS Research Incentive Scheme. Under the scheme, public-listed companies will be covered by at least two research firms and any research reports produced will be made available to the public free of charge on the SGX website.

Each participating research firm will provide regular research coverage on at least 15 stocks. As at May 2004, nine research firms and 122 listed companies participated in this scheme. More than 14,000 users have also signed up for access to the research reports.
