SGX proposes regulatory framework for secondary listings

Singapore Exchange (SGX) is consulting the public on its proposed regulatory framework for secondary listed companies on the exchange.

Under the current framework, SGX reviews the legal and regulatory requirements of the primary listing venue or “home exchange” for each company from a jurisdiction new to the exchange. With the proposed framework, SGX aims to: make clear the regulatory oversight SGX has on secondary listings and provide greater clarity on the methodology SGX applies for its regulatory review of secondary listing applicants.

SGX also intends to help investors more easily differentiate between secondary- and primary-listed companies in the Singapore stock market. For example, SGX will clearly segregate between these companies when their stock information is displayed on our website.
