Overall, the STI generated a 6% total return, data from the Singapore Exchange (SGX) showed.

The big three ranked first, second, fourth in the index, respectively, drawing a combined $100m in net institutional inflows.

For the 2022 year through to 18 March, the total net institutional inflow for the trio is now at $476m, with the trio averaging 10.4% gains.
