Finalto adds SGISGD – MSCI Singapore Index for exposure to “roaring Asian tiger”
Finalto has added SGISGD – MSCI Singapore Index to its trading platforms in a milestone move in the fintech’s expansion into the Asia market.
The provider of multi-channel trading software, systems and liquidity services has recently been certified as a capital markets provider by the Singapore FinTech Association (SFA), namely for its Finalto 360 offering.
The firm knows that the SGISGD – MSCI Singapore Index is in demand not only in Asia and will be enjoyed by clients across the globe who look to gain exposure to Singapore’s economy.
STI outperformed most major markets in H1 2022
The MSCI Singapore Index was created to measure the performance of the large and mid-cap segments of the Singapore market. Made up of 20 constituents, the index covers around 85% of the free float-adjusted market capitalisation of Singapore equity.
Neil Wilson, Chief Market’s Analyst at Finalto, commented: “It’s not been an easy time for global equity markets in 2022. Driven by inflation, rising bond yields and worries about a global economic slowdown, investors have been de-risking portfolios by reducing exposure to equities. Singapore is, however, looking in a much better shape than many developed markets and its stock market reflects this healthy outlook. Shares on the STI have outperformed most major markets in the first half of the year, trading virtually flat to slightly positive in the first six months.”
“Singapore’s economy is not at risk of recession or stagflation at this stage, according to finance minister Lawrence Won, and investors are looking favourably on the country as a destination for capital. Even post-covid amid the turmoil in global markets this is a roaring Asian tiger.”

Finalto opened its Asia office in 2019 and has obtained the SFA certification as a capital markets provider in June 2022, being one of a few global fintech providers to have achieved this certification.
