RHTLaw Taylor Wessing congratulates Senior Partner Tan Chong Huat on his appointment as Deputy Chairman of Singapore Exchange’s (SGX) Disciplinary Committee.
Chong Huat will be joined on the committee by senior executives with experience in corporate finance, legal, accounting, directorship and market experience whose skills, expertise and knowledge provide sound and authoritative decision-making. The committee is established to enforce the highest standards in regulation and governance in Singapore’s capital markets.
As a front-line regulator of Singapore’s capital markets with a duty to operate fair, orderly and transparent markets, SGX relies on its independent Disciplinary Committee and Appeals Committee to adjudicate on breaches of SGX’s listing, trading and clearing rules governing the activities on SGX’s markets. The members of the Disciplinary Committee are appointed by SGX, in consultation with the Monetary Authority of Singapore.
Ch’ng Li-Ling, Head of the Firm’s Capital Markets, said of Chong Huat’s appointment, “I’m delighted to congratulate Chong Huat on this appointment. It demonstrates the high regard in which Chong Huat is held within our legal profession and among our regulators, and is also a testament to the unique mix of business savvy, intellectual contribution and professional integrity that he brings to the wider business community.”
