Singapore, Apr 10, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - Singapore Exchange (SGX) will introduce its revised securities market fees, with changes to clearing, transfer and onward settlement fees, with effect from 1 June 2014. This initiative is part of SGX's on-going efforts to strengthen and improve liquidity in Singapore's securities market.
Following its initial announcement of the revised fees in February, SGX has continuously engaged market participants as they prepare for the implementation of these fee changes. The effective date of 1 June 2014 has been scheduled to provide all market participants with time to complete changes required to their systems and processes.
The revised SGX fees will comprise the following:
1. Reduced clearing fees:
The clearing fee will be reduced from 0.04% to 0.0325% of contract value. The cap of S$600 on this fee for contracts of S$1.5 million, or more, will be removed. Investors, retail and institutions, will benefit from lower transaction costs when investing in SGX stocks.
2. Settlement fees pursuant to a transaction on SGX-ST:
Transfer and onward settlements pursuant to on-exchange transactions on SGX-ST will be standardised to a charge of $30 per settlement instruction.
3. Settlement fees for transactions not pursuant to a transaction on SGX-ST:
Settlement fees for all settlements not pursuant to transactions on SGX-ST (i.e. not pursuant to an on-exchange transaction) will be standardised to a charge of 1.5 basis points of the settlement value (min $75) per settlement instruction.
On 1 June, the new "SGX Market Maker and Liquidity Provider Programme" will also be available to all market participants, who trade as a principal using proprietary capital and can satisfy certain eligibility criteria.
