Jenny Chiam, Head of Securities, SGX, says: “We are pleased to see ten more ETFs have become available to all investors, coming within two months of the regulatory changes. With more choices and access to products from different countries, retail investors can benefit from ETFs as a simple and low-cost way of building a well-diversified investment portfolio.”
Marco Montanari (pictured), Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management, Head of Passive Asset Management for Asia Pacific, says: “We are pleased to have 10 of Deutsche AWM's ETFs converted as EIP. These 10 ETFs offer investors easy access to various exposures in the global equity markets.”
Kevin Hardy, Head of Beta Strategies in Asia Pacific and Country Head of Blackrock Singapore, says: “The regulatory changes made by MAS have enabled open access to a greater range of ETFs listed in Singapore, including our iShares MSCI India Index ETF which complements our existing two fixed income EIP qualified funds. At BlackRock, we see these changes as a spark to future development for the Singapore ETF market, and when combined with the clearing fee waivers announced by the SGX these definitely help to create a better ecosystem for market participants, fund providers and investors.”
Joanne Goh, Regional Equity Strategist, DBS Group Research says: “Market volatility will persist for a while as Greek bailout negotiation talks and Fed hikes uncertainty perturb markets.  Portfolio diversification through the use of ETFs will be most appropriate in this environment. To help retail investors better understand ETFs, DBS also has a series of seminars on this asset class.”
