"The launch of FX futures and additional MSCI futures on the Thailand, Philippines and India markets in 2013 has shown that SGX continues to be at the forefront of product innovation," said Colin Macfarlan, Managing Director of Prime Services, Listed Derivatives, Credit Suisse Securities (Singapore) Pte Limited.

Mark Wei, Chairman of KGI Securities Co. Ltd added that, "In KGI's global reach strategy, we see SGX as our best partner as we strive to be a leading investment bank in Asia Pacific. Together we create value for our customers."
