Foreign Desk

 

The Foreign Desk was established in 1991 to facilitate the trading of shares on the foreign stock exchanges. It was initially set up to cater to the demand of clients investing in the Singapore and Hong Kong stock exchanges. However over the years it expanded to cover eight more countries.

With the introduction of Direct Market Access (DMA) trading platform in some of the established markets, Dealers at the Foreign Desk are now able to route orders directly to these exchanges using the online trading platform.

Currently, the foreign desk is able to trade in the exchanges of the following countries:
