SGX enhanced listing rules: Opportunities for Australian miners

In July 2018, South East Asia’s growing IPO fundraising venue, the Singapore Exchange (SGX), announced enhanced listing rules. What do these changes entail and what does it mean for minerals companies in WA?

As part of AMC Consultants’ MineSmarter Series, we are pleased to team up with the SGX to host this seminar featuring Chong Lek, Director (SGX), and industry legend, Peter Stoker, Principal Geologist, (AMC). The seminar is a must for minerals companies interested in understanding the potential the SGX offers in terms of connectivity to Asia and rest of the world and will cover the following topics:

  • The Singapore capitals market.
  • Case studies and Australian companies listed on SGX.
  • The enhanced listing rules and what they mean for Australian companies.
  • The capital-raising opportunities offered by the SGX for companies at varying stages of growth.

With minerals contributing 21% of trading on the SGX Catalist Board, this is and will likely continue to be the SGX’s top traded sector so don’t miss this chance to upgrade you knowledge of the Singapore capitals market.

Tickets are complimentary and include drinks.
