Singapore Exchange (SGX), the Society of Remisiers (Singapore) (SRS) and the Securities Association of Singapore (SAS) today launched a programme to enhance the profile and development of the remisier profession.
The initiative aims to raise awareness about the key market role of remisiers, promote the highly specialised profession and raise professional competency levels across the industry. SGX Academy will support these efforts with advanced programmes in high-velocity trading and sales delivered by practicing experts, in line with the Monetary Authority of Singapore’s (MAS) strategic thrust of building a greater pool of highly-talented financial professionals.
Andrew Ler, Senior Vice President and Head, Private Investors at SGX, says, “Remisiers play a critical role in our marketplace. It is important that the professional development of Remisiers is elevated to the next level, in tandem with the development of products and the marketplace. Coupled with a clear profile of this profession, we will be stepping up career awareness and recruitment campaigns in close partnership with SRS and SAS to attract more talents into our industry.”
"In today’s fast-changing and challenging business world, remisiers must constantly raise their level of professionalism and competency. We advocate learning and re-learning as the integral approach towards remisiers’ continuing professional development,” says Albert Fong, President of The Society of Remisiers (Singapore).
“Member companies of the SAS appreciate the unique role and multi-faceted contributions of remisiers in Singapore's securities industry. We applaud the Society of Remisiers (Singapore) for its initiative to upgrade professionalism and elevate the image of the profession. ’The Re-making of the Remisier Profession’ has our full support," says Lim Eng Hai, Chief Executive Officer of Securities Association of Singapore.
