Singapore Exchange has appointed Pol de Win as Senior Managing Director, Head of Global Sales and Origination (GSO), the operator announced.

The industry veteran is experienced in capital markets advisory and execution of financial services sector transactions across Asia, Europe, and the United States, lending him a global perspective of the industry.

He has executed transactions and worked with teams and clients in over 20 countries from the U.S. to China and Poland to Indonesia, building long-lasting relationships with seasoned executives, start-up entrepreneurs, and investors.

He relied on a sructured, analytical approach towards managing projects, teams and solving problems throughout his career as he helped capital markets firms and corporate from large-scale M&A and IPOs to early-stage private capital raises and investments.

He is known for its entrepreneurial drive as fintech expertise across digital and traditional lending/payments/wealth management/insurance/market structure.

Mr. de Win joined SGX from Goldman Sachs, where he was Managing Director in Hong Kong, heading Southeast Asia Financial Institutions and Fintech (Asia ex-Japan).

Pol de Win will succeed the current Head of GSO, Chew Sutat who will be retiring from the company on 31 July 2021. Mr. Sutat joined SGX in June 2007 and made significant contributions in a range of leadership positions that saw the exchange transform from the Asian gateway into a global multi-asset exchange.

Mr. Loh Boon Chye, Chief Executive Officer of SGX, said, “Sutat has been a valuable colleague and member of the SGX executive management team over the years, pioneering platforms and products that are a key feature of SGX’s business today. We would like to thank him for his leadership, service, and commitment in elevating the significance of our capital markets, and along with it the expansion of SGX’s international business.”

“As we enter a new growth stage, we are pleased to welcome Pol to SGX. He adds perspective and experience honed from a vast network of relationships with regional issuers, global investors and major exchanges. With Pol’s leadership, we look forward to broadening and deepening the businesses Sutat and the team have built.”

SGX is introducing artificial intelligence and other RegTech solutions to enhance its oversight of listed issuers.

The indicators, based on SGX RegCo’s observations of indicative signs of possible financial distress or irregularities in listed companies, include the existence of long outstanding trade receivables; significant asset write-offs; low cash coverage ratio, and negative working capital.

SGX RegCo will soon add machine learning techniques and additional information sources with a view to improving predictive capabilities in these areas.
