“We are pleased to welcome KGI Futures as a new Trading Member. In recent months, a number of brokers from North Asia have taken trading memberships in our derivatives market, forming more than 10% of our derivatives trading membership.
“Our China A50 futures volume growth has also been significant with more than 660,000 contracts traded in March 2012, triple that of a year ago. We are therefore looking forward to greater member participation in our equity index derivatives on China, Taiwan and other Asian economies,” said Mr Chew Sutat, Head of Sales & Clients at SGX.
