Since FIA Boca didn’t take place this March, John Lothian News posed our questions to Loh Boon Chye, the CEO of SGX, from afar, and he responded in this video shot in mid-March.  Even in a slow growth environment in the midst of COVID-19, he believes the Asian sector is poised to grow faster than the rest of the world, and SGX has been building a multi-asset exchange over the years to take part in that growth. The exchange reorganized its business in July 2019 into four business and sales units: equities; the newly-formed fixed income, currency and commodities unit; and the data connectivity and index business. Singapore is Asia’s largest foreign exchange trading center, and SGX is seeing a merging of liquidity between its FX futures suite and over-the-counter FX. Loh also talked about the exchange’s alliances with the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange and Nasdaq, and the expansion of its index capability and presence in the U.S.
