SINGAPORE -- Singapore Exchange announced Friday that its net profit for the January-March quarter jumped 21% on the year to 100 million Singapore dollars ($76 million), the highest since the same quarter in 2008.

A strong derivatives market boosted the top- and bottom-line growth. The revenue for the quarter increased 10% year-on-year to S$222 million, the highest quarterly revenue ever since the exchange was publicly listed in 2000.
