Bloomberg: The Incredible Shrinking Singapore Stock Market

Analysis —

Bloomberg publishes an in-depth look into the shrinking number of companies listed on Singapore's stock market, SGX.

For the last five years, delistings have outnumbered listings in the market, which had 741 companies at the end of December last year, down from a peak of 782 in 2010. In 2018 the money raised from the 15 SGX initial public offerings, excluding depositary receipts, fell to just S$710.6 million, while 19 companies departed—a net outflow of S$19.2 billion in market value.
