In 2012 Introducing Brokers (IB’s) in Singapore were granted an exemption under the Securities and Futures Act (SFA) from the requirement to hold a Capital Markets Services License. A number of conditions were imposed on this exemption and further conditions were added in March 2015 including a requirement to submit to MAS an auditor’s certification of the company’s compliance with those conditions.
Amerex Singapore’s exemption under the act was granted in November 2012.
