Survey of Treasury Activities

FX Settlement Risk Practices

In July 2001, MAS published a report, Foreign Exchange Settlement Risk Practices in Singapore (166.4 KB) , based on the results of a survey of 39 banks in the Singapore foreign exchange market whose foreign exchange activities in total accounted for more than 90% of Singapore's total foreign exchange transactions in 1999.

Based on each EMEAP1 member's FXSR survey results, the EMEAP Working Group on Payment and Settlement Systems published a report, Foreign Exchange Settlement Risk in the East Asia-Pacific Region (256.1 KB) , in December 2001 to analyse the scale of foreign exchange settlement risk in the EMEAP region.

1 Established in 1991, EMEAP is a co-operative organisation of central banks and monetary authorities in the East Asia and Pacific region. The primary objective of EMEAP is to strengthen the co-operative relationships among its members.
