SGX gunning for derivatives to fuel growth as M&A dream vanishes

Bloomberg, 4 Aug 2013
Singapore Exchange Ltd. (SGX), Southeast Asia’s biggest bourse, is relying on derivatives for growth amid a dearth of merger and acquisition candidates in Asia.
SGX is planning energy and bond futures, Chief Executive Officer Magnus Bocker said. The bourse’s revenue from derivatives climbed 50 percent to S$234.5 million ($183.7 million) in the five years through June 2013, outpacing the 4.4 percent increase in equity trading to S$469.50 million, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
