Singapore Exchange strikes new index deal with UK partner

SGX bets on collaboration with FTSE Russell after MSCI loss to Hong Kong

A recent study found that among publicly listed firms in the ASEAN region, those in Singapore scored lower on corporate governance measures than those in Thailand and Malaysia.

SINGAPORE -- The Singapore Exchange on Thursday announced a fresh deal with U.K.-based index provider FTSE Russell to develop and promote a range of Asia and emerging-economy focused derivatives, as regional exchanges wage an intensifying battle for market share.

The suite of products will cover single country and regional equity derivatives, in addition to environmental, social and governance, as well as listed real estate index derivatives. Index derivatives track underlying baskets of assets and are used by investors to hedge financial market volatility.
