Located in the heart of Asia, Singapore is one of the few city-states in the world. Though the Lion City lacks natural resources, its strategic location and well-established business infrastructure have made Singapore an attractive regional hub for international trade, shipping and air transport.
Singapore continues to be well-regarded as a triple-A rated economy, and it is also the world's second-freest economy after Hong Kong. Major industries in Singapore include banking and finance, biomedical and pharmaceutical, tourism, logistics, petrochemical, and construction.
Singapore is part of the ASEAN Exchanges – a collaboration among Bursa Malaysia, Hanoi Stock Exchange, Hochiminh Stock Exchange, Indonesia Stock Exchange, The Philippine Stock Exchange Inc, Singapore Exchange and The Stock Exchange of Thailand. The group was established to provide an interlinked ASEAN capital market via greater cross-border investments, mobilisation of intra-ASEAN funds and trading of equity markets.
Investing in Singapore listed companies is done mainly through the Singapore Stock Exchange.
If you are looking to diversify your portfolio and to participate in one of the most robust economies in the world, investing in Singapore may deliver that much needed portfolio boost.
