Boon Chye Loh: Opening the market
As part of Euromoney's 50th anniversary coverage, we profile some of the biggest names that we interviewed for our May Asia focus.
Boon Chye Loh has been chief executive of the Singapore Exchange (SGX) since 2015, and before that had a storied career in investment banking. At Deutsche Bank he built the global markets business in Asia that at times accounted for half the bank’s profits in the region.

Today his preoccupation is making SGX work at a time when new listings are few and far between, and equity trading is moribund. His contention is that there is more to life than shares.
“The journey we carried out in the last few years was to cement the exchange further as a multi-asset exchange,” he says. “We want to offer investors access to Asia and to different asset classes.”
