Singapore Exchange plays a key role in Asia's securities and derivatives market, offering the world's largest offshore market for Asian equities index derivatives. Its markets attract many overseas players, and approximately 40% of listed companies and 80% of listed bonds have their origins overseas. As of January 2019, the Singapore Exchange (SGX) has 640 mainboard listings and 215 catalist listings. Companies are only listed on the Singapore Exchange if they do well. If their average daily market capitalisation is less than $40 million over the last 120 market days, then it is placed on a watch-list, and if it does not improve within two years it is delisted from the Singapore Exchange. The top 10 largest listed companies on the Singapore exchange accounts for approximately half of the total value by market capitalisation and five of the largest according to market capitalisation in descending order are: DBS Group Holdings; Jardine Matheson Holdings; Singapore Telecommunications; Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation and United Overseas Bank. What is more, there are over 3,000 outstanding listed debt securities with over US$1 trillion amount issued. There is also a trading floor for derivatives and indices. What is more, SGX operates the most liquid, offshore marketplace for trading the major equity indexes of China, India, Japan and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The exchange plays an important role in providing liquidity in the Asian marketplace.
