Singapore stocks on the LSE

Barring any last-minute glitches, the London Stock Exchange will be launching trading in major Singapore-listed stocks on Monday 19th November, as part of a cross-listing agreement announced in July. Reciprocal trading in FTSE 100 stocks on the Singapore Exchange is intended to start in the first half of 2013.

There will be 37 Singapore stocks initially (Straits Times Index and MSCI Singapore Free constituents) and trading will be on the LSE’s new International Board. This is distinct from the International Order Book (where depository receipts trade) and the European Quoting Service and European Trade Reporting Service, the new MiFID services that have replaced the old International Retail Service.
