As part of its drive to enable investors to make informed investment decisions, the Singapore Exchange (SGX) has re-launched its website with a number of new, enhanced features.
Starting July 25, investors, companies, members, regulators and other regular users and visitors of sgx.com will experience the website’s new look and navigation designed to create a single, user-friendly platform for all capital market related information.
Timely information on important developments such as real time market trading, prices, company disclosures are just one click away. The new website will also include the industry benchmark STI chart for the first time.
“Sgx.com is created to meet customers’ demand for high-quality market information. Together with our range of products, sgx.com further strengthens our offering to customers seeking access to Asian growth and international capital,” said Mr Magnus Bocker, CEO of SGX.
Aside from the enhanced interface and content, the new website also aims to capture a wider audience as it will be delivered in both English and Chinese versions. And for those on the go, SGX also developed a mobile version of the website, SGX Lite, for all web-enabled mobile phones.
“We are pleased with the improvements made to sgx.com and the introduction of a mobile version of the website. We hope these enhancements will encourage more individuals to consider including SGX – traded securities as part of their investment portfolios,” said Mr David Gerald, CEO of Securities Investors Association (Singapore).
