SGX Inks Partnership with CFA Singapore to Enhance Investment Competencies

Singapore Exchange (SGX) and CFA Singapore (CFAS) jointly announced on Monday a partnership to enhance the level of investment competencies in Singapore.
The collaboration will see SGX Academy and CFAS adopt a two-prong approach: firstly, to enhance the competencies of trading representatives and financial advisers; and secondly, to equip young investors with basic investment knowledge.
For a starter, both parties will come up with customised educational materials for the traders and investors and reach out to them through a series of investment forums for the next two years starting July 2012.
The lectures will be delivered by prominent CFA charter holders.
For trading representatives and financial advisers, the content will be based on a practitioner’s perspective, focusing on investing, portfolio management and trading with a strong ethics overlay to promote trust and integrity in the industry.
For young investors, the emphasis will be on prudent investing and developing an investment plan. SGX Academy and CFAS will also work with investment clubs of tertiary institutions to develop champions of investor education.
“This series of investment forums will be structured to impart practical and relevant knowledge to trading representatives and financial advisers, and be delivered with the same high quality standards as our CFA programme,” remarked Dan Schaefer, President of CFA Singapore.
For Chew Sutat, SGX Executive Vice President who oversees the Academy, the collaboration will help raise the level of competencies and standards of service delivered by trading representatives and financial advisers in order to benefit customers.
“Young investors will also benefit substantially from the high quality and structured education format delivered by CFA speakers. By developing champions of investor education, we hope to convert a nation of savers into investors,” he added.
“When we did our global survey, we found that an issue faced by our industry is the need to build greater trust. I am glad to see a strong ethics component in this programme as greater professionalism and trust will help push the community forward,” said Ashvin Vibhakar, MD Asia Pacific, CFA Institute.

Global Logistic Properties: BUY; S$1.99

GLP announced it has secured another project for its Japan Development
Fund. GLP Atsugi is a 109,500sm GFA large scale multi-tenant facility in
Aikawa in the Kanagawa prefecture in Greater Tokyo region. GLP Atsugi will
be equipped with dual ramp up access as well as back up power supply and
seismic isolation structure. The project is expected to cost US$169m and
development is scheduled to start in Nov 2012 and complete by Dec 2013.
About 35% of the building (first and second floors) has been pre-committed
to an existing customer. The customer is a 3PL company and has chosen GLP’s
facility to consolidate their operations in the region for effective
business and cost management.

This is GLP's third development project under its Japan Development Fund, a
50/50 JV with Canadian Pension Plan Investment Board and its sixth asset in
Kanagawa, a major distribution centre for the Greater Tokyo region. The
property is located within the Nairiku Kogyo Danchi, a 24-hour logistics
and industrial park which is strategically located 1km from the Sagamihara
interchange exit (Ken-O Expressway) and 12km from the Atsugi interchange
exit (Tomei Expressway), offering convenient access to the Greater Tokyo

Following this win, total value of development projects secured under the
fund currently stands at US$427m, with these projects to be progressively
completed from 2Q13 onwards. This will contribute positively to GLP in the
form of a growing fee income base as well as share of profits from the

Surveyhead Scam is another survey site that promises to award you for doing OTX surveys. They do offer other surveys but very rarely will you get a survey not from OTX. OTX only allows you to take one survey per day. They can be hard to qualify for but I manage to finish at least one a day. Each survey you take is worth one dollar. Minimum payout is twenty five dollars. I felt it was worth the time spent because I was just on my laptop watching television anyway. That is time well spent if I had gotten paid for it. That is the problem with Surveyhead. You reach minimum payout and you never get paid.

I made sure my paypal account information was correct before I cashed out. I know that is a common mistake a lot of people make. I first contacted Surveyhead with high hopes this would be resolved quickly. Unfortunately, the folks over at Surveyhead never bothered to contact me. This was about two weeks after I cashed out. I waited another week to contact them and again no reply. Two months had passed and I knew Surveyhead was a scam. I contacted them again anyway. I told them I was not happy with their service and as you would expect no reply. I vowed never to trust a survey site that doesn’t allow you to contact them by phone. Anyone can set up an email address and ignore you. Having a phone number makes it very tough for a website to ignore its customers.

Surveyhead is in a long list of survey sites that want you to take surveys and earn money for them but they don’t want to pay their customers. I would recommend not joining Surveyhead.

MAS Relaxes Rules on Sale of Investment Products

The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) on Wednesday announced that it will reduce the number of investment products subject to its new investor protection rules, following consultation with the local financial industry.
Under the new rules that took effect January 1 this year, investors must possess certain educational qualifications related to finance or have relevant work or trading experience to buy funds directly.
Those who fail to meet the MAS’s requirements had to take a series of online tutorials on the Singapore Exchange website, and answer the questions correctly in order to qualify to buy the funds, a first for investors anywhere in the world.
The regulations were criticised by some fund managers in the city-state fearing a loss of business.
In its new announcement, the central bank said that starting October this year, the investor protection rules will no longer apply to certain products as it refines the prescribed list of excluded investment products (EIPs).
The reclassification will include EIP-equivalent investment products listed on foreign exchanges, certain Collective Investment Schemes (CIS) and sub-funds of investment-linked life insurance policies (ILPs).
Intermediaries that can identify EIP-equivalent investment products listed on foreign exchanges will be allowed to treat these products as EIPs. An intermediary that is unable to determine whether a foreign-listed investment product is an EIP will be required to treat the product as an specified investment product (SIP).
“MAS notes that foreign-listed investment products, including EIPs, may carry a different set of risks and different levels of protection for investors from those offered locally. MAS will therefore require intermediaries to warn retail customers of the possible risks prior to the customer’s first purchase of a foreign-listed investment product from October 2012 and to obtain the customer’s acknowledgement on the risk warning disclosure,” the central bank said.
Meanwhile, a CIS will be classified as an EIP if its investment mandate permits investments only in EIPs, and prohibits it from engaging in securities lending or repurchase transactions
“The manager of such a CIS will be required to seek unitholders’ approval and ensure that the relevant SIP requirements have been complied with for each retail unitholder, before making any change in the investment mandate of the CIS that could cause it to become an SIP,” MAS added.
Singapore, which has rapidly developed its financial industry in recent years, is home to 783 mutual funds that oversee about US$70.0 billion, according to data tracked by Lipper, a Thomson Reuters company.
Overall, Singapore-based fund managers had S$1.4 trillion in assets under management at the end of 2010, according to MAS.

Singapore Debuts in Top 10 of BlackRock’s Sovereign Risk Index

Singapore debuted in the top 10 of the BlackRock Sovereign Risk Index (BSRI) due to the country’s sterling debt profile, BlackRock announced on Monday.
The BSRI, which provides investors with a framework for tracking sovereign credit risk, ranked newcomers Singapore and Taiwan among the top 10 in the latest edition of the index.
Singapore parachuted into second place and Taiwan into sixth for their negative net debt, running tight budget ships and having debt that is held almost exclusively by domestic players.
“Singapore is a model citizen when it comes to its (negative) net government debt levels. The same can be said of Taiwan and we’re glad to be able to introduce these two countries into the BSRI index. Singapore has no foreign currency government debt to speak of while Taiwan has very little. Singapore scores higher in the willingness to pay category because of its government stability,” said Joel Kim, Managing Director and Head of Asia-Pacific Fixed Income at BlackRock.
Norway topped the BSRI rankings, while Greece remained at the bottom.
BSRI assesses sovereign credit risk of 48 countries by drawing on a pool of financial data, surveys and political insights.
