Banks, brokers and vendors have had to adapt to these changes in order to stay relevant.  The use of technology in banking and finance will only get bigger and buzz words like big data, artificial intelligence, data science, block-chain, cloud storage and low latency will be part and parcel of corporate strategies going forward. Learn from our panel of experts as they bring us up to speed on the world of Financial Technology (FinTech).

ACI Singapore-Malaysia Biennial Games

PAST EVENT

ACI Singapore Retains the ACI Singapore-Malaysia Champion Cup

ACI Singapore hosted the 21st edition of the ACI Singapore-Malaysia Biennial Friendship Games on 15 October 2016. 160 ACI members from both countries participated in 6 games at various venues, with the events concluding on a high note for ACI Singapore, with our winning retaining the champion cup for a 2nd successive time. It was a close contest, held in a friendly, but competitive spirit. ACI Malaysia won the Darts and Pool/Snooker competitions, but ACI Singapore prevailed in the Badminton, Soccer and Bowling competitions to emerge overall champion 3-2. This edition of the games was also interesting with the inclusion of a friendly Basketball competition where ACI Malaysia emerged victorious. At the close of the event, ACI Singapore hosted our guests from Malaysia to a great evening of food, drinks and music at Bistro 1855.

Our special appreciation to UOB for sponsoring the event T-shirts.

PAST EVENT

ACI Singapore Seminar
Examining The Global FX Code

ACI Singapore is delighted to invite you to an evening seminar to discuss the Global FX Code.

“The Global FX Code (Global Code) is intended to become an integral part of the FX market globally, and articulate the good practices with which Market Participants and their counterparties are expected to conduct their business.” (FX Global Code Public Update on Adherence, May 2016)

On 26 May 2016, the first phase of the Global Code of Conduct for the Foreign Exchange Market was released by the BIS Foreign Exchange Working Group (FXWG). The FXWG was established in July 2015 and operates under the auspices of the BIS Markets Committee. Membership of the FXWG covers major financial centres in both the advanced and emerging market economies, with support from the private sector Market Participants Group (MPG). The Global FX Code may be accessed here.

Mr Lam Chee Kin, Group Head of Compliance at DBS Bank and member of the MPG, will share his insights and discuss the implications of the code on the FX markets, not only globally, but as it relates to the Singapore Market and our Blue Book. This will then be followed by a panel discussion where Chee Kin will be joined by other market participants, representing the Banks and Brokers, and the MAS. A Q&A session will complete the discussion, and this will be followed by cocktails and finger food during which participants will be able to meet with the panelists.
