SINGAPORE (Dec 11): The Singapore Exchange (SGX) has been named Asia Pacific’s “Exchange of the Year” for the fourth time in five years at the annual Futures and Options World (FOW) International Awards. 

Judged by a panel of industry experts from a range of disciplines across the market, the FOW awards recognise companies that have displayed growth and innovation across the global derivatives market.

Head of Equities at SGX Michael Syn says, “Meeting and exceeding our clients’ needs, especially in an increasingly challenging global market, is what fuels our efforts to develop the best risk management solutions.”

“As Asia’s most international exchange, offering unfettered and efficient access to Asian emerging markets across asset classes is our priority. We know our clients see the value in these solutions, but we are pleased to also earn the accolades of the wider community,” adds Syn. 

Earlier this year SGX was also named ‘Exchange of the Year’ and ‘Exchange of the Year – Derivatives’ at the FOW and Global Investor Asia Capital Markets Awards – an extension of FOW’s awards for Asia.
