SGX and Smartkarma noted that this is the first collaboration between Smartkarma and an exchange that will, for the first time, bring analysts, investors and listed companies into one network. “Smartkarma and SGX are inviting C-level executives and investor relations professionals of SGX-listed companies to join the C-Suite Pilot Program to provide their input and feedback, with the objective of gaining a better understanding of local requirements and use cases specific to this market,” two said.
