Mr Gan Seow Ann, President of SGX, said, “We are pleased that SEB has joined our derivatives market as our first Nordic member. This is the first Asian exchange membership for SEB and we are especially proud that the bank has chosen SGX – the Asian Gateway. With SEB as an SGX
member, we look forward to greater fund flows and a wider distribution of our products.”
Mr Fredrik Barnekow, Head of SEB Enskilda Equities, said, “We are both pleased and excited in equal measure at SEB becoming the first Nordic bank member of SGX. This is an important step for SEB as we seek to offer our customers increased direct access to the major global derivative
exchanges. Asia is becoming more important to both our core corporate and institutional clients.
This membership clearly demonstrates our ambitions to provide services in support of our clients when they expand abroad while at the same time enhancing our existing offering.”
