Singapore, 01 December 2021 – Award-winning Asian fund management company, Phillip Capital Management (S) Ltd today announced the launch of two exchange-traded products, namely Phillip MSCI Singapore Daily (2X) Leveraged Product and Phillip MSCI Singapore Daily (-1X) Inverse Product (“together as Phillip L&I Products”). Units of the products will commence trading on 01 December 2021.
The products would seek to achieve a constant daily leveraged or inverse exposure, to the MSCI Singapore Index which covers about 85% of free-float market capitalization in the Singapore Exchange universe.
“With the Phillip L&I Products, investors and traders can now take up positions depending on their short-term view of the market. Traders who are bullish can ride on the Leveraged product, while bearish investors can use the Inverse product to take advantage of market weakness or hedge their portfolio effectively,” said Mr. Linus Lim, Director and Chief Executive Officer of Phillip Capital Management.
Mr. Linus Lim added, “the products also take away the monitoring and handling of margins for traders, allowing them to focus their energy on implementing their trading strategies. Ultimately, this would benefit them by freeing up both time and capital.”
Being listed on the exchange, the Phillip L&I Products would also serve as meaningful indicators about the broader market.
“Since the products reflect investors’ near-term “bullishness” or “bearishness”, their trading volume would act as meaningful gauges for market sentiments and volatility in the local exchange,” said Mr. Tan Teck Leng, Senior Fund Manager at Phillip Capital Management.
Phillip Capital Management has appointed HSBC Institutional Trust Services (Singapore) as the Trustee, Custodian and Fund Administrator for Phillip L&I Products.
Noor Adhami, Managing Director, Head of Securities Services, HSBC Singapore said: “The Phillip L&I products will widen options for investors navigating Singapore’s ETF market. Marking the first of their kind in Singapore, we will draw on HSBC’s deep expertise in trustee, custodian and fund administration from across the region to support PhillipCapital with the ongoing servicing of their new offering.”
