SINGAPORE -- Singapore Exchange (SGX), Southeast Asia's biggest bourse, is forging partnerships with fintech companies to remain relevant in the age of blockchain, cryptocurrencies and other disruptive technologies, CEO Loh Boon Chye told the Nikkei Forum "Innovative Asia" in Singapore.

Among other initiatives, SGX is developing a marketplace platform so that companies can communicate more easily with investors and analysts, allowing them to better monitor sentiment and make more informed decisions. This should also give investors and analysts a better understanding of companies by allowing them to benchmark them against their peers and monitor industry performance.
