The Edge Singapore was established in 2001, a sister company to The Edge Malaysia. The publication has been editorially independent since its inception and we believe that the public is best served when they have recourse to different, fair, accurate and balanced news.
Singapore, striving to be the leading financial and investment centre of the region, is undoubtedly one of the strong economic pillars in Asia. Due to the financial crisis and shakeout in Asia, the scope for a niche media with a strong Asian outlook and identity is required and Singapore proves to be a strategic location for current news and information.
The Edge Singapore published and launched its first issue on 4 March 2002.
Since then, the publication stands as the only weekly local newspaper that gives readers an in-depth and analytical coverage on business and investments within Singapore and across the region.
When the Global Financial Crisis hit the world in 2008, The Edge Singapore decided that it was time to bring news online. The publication saw that the business and investment news that were published each week are relevant to more than just the readers in Asia but to all ends of the earth - where the crisis hits, where the news is required.
The New Era - In 2018, a new direction was formed.
Broadening the scope of reporting and analysis from just business and investments to include news and views on social issues and pertinent topics that reflect the opportunities and challenges of the day.
It is important to note that financial services and investing do not exist in a vacuum. The shifts in the broader economy and markets are driving social, economic and political change, which in turn is impacting the way decisions are made at all levels.
Against that backdrop, The Edge Singapore is set to look beyond the numbers for what makes society function, especially in these changing times. It involves taking a harder look at socio-economic issues.
Ultimately, as an independent news organisation and members of society, The Edge Singapore has a responsibility to be part of sustainable socio-economic development.
At the end of the day, at The Edge Singapore, it is more than just a newsroom that brings our readers fair, accurate and balanced news.
It’s a place where the editors and writers come together to discuss and debate on topics and stories that are most relevant to the hearts of our readers.
Right in the heart of the buzz where information and news are released at every corner of the street, especially during the lunch hour - 380 Jalan Besar, the 16th floor where the view is great.
