Singapore Introduces a Review of Complex Retail Investment Products


Singapore -- (SBWire) -- 11/18/2021 --The financial innovation of the past decade has created some incredible opportunities but also opened up a new, more complex risk landscape. Retail investments in particular have seen a large number of investment products with much more intricate risk-reward profiles. As a result of this shift, the Monetary Authority of Singapore is now taking steps to try and introduce more safeguards for these products. In particular, it has proposed changes to the classification of certain products that will mean those that are labelled as 'complex' will come with a number of new safeguards attached. The authority's complex products regime was established in 2012 and the latest move is a review of this initial structure that is designed to establish whether it is still fit for purpose. The regime is intended to give retail investors access to a broader range of products while at the same time providing more information and support on the features and risks of those that fall into the complex category.
