SINGAPORE: Singapore Exchange (SGX) has expanded its partnership with global index provider FTSE Russell, under which both parties will jointly develop and market Asian and emerging markets focused, multi-asset index derivatives products.

"In the next few months, you will see a series of product launches on the back of this agreement," Loh Boon Chye, SGX's CEO told reporters on Thursday (Aug 28).

The move by SGX comes just three months after index provider MSCI said it would shift licensing of many Asian derivatives to Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing from February 2021, dealing a blow to SGX's lucrative derivatives business.

SGX's suite of equities, commodities and forex derivative products have helped power its earnings growth over the past few years.

SGX and FTSE Russell said the new core products will be anchored around FTSE Russell's global benchmark indexes for fixed Income, listed real Estate, global equities and currencies.

FTSE Russell is a unit of the London Stock Exchange Group.
