Enhancing Retail Investors’ Access to SGS in the Secondary Market

Building on past efforts to enhance retail investors’ access to SGS, MAS worked with the industry to enable trading of SGS on the Singapore Exchange (SGX). With the launch of the SGX trading platform in July 2011, investors are able to access all SGS bond prices on SGX’s website or through their brokers, and trade SGS bonds through their brokers in a manner similar to the way stocks are traded. Prices are more transparent and secondary market liquidity has increased, improving investors’ access to a safe investment alternative for both capital protection and steady returns.
