from Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, has
selected Refinitiv’s digital solutions to power its online platform, providing
critical data and insights to retail and institutional investors and helping to
promote investment in the ASEAN region.


Formed in 2019, the ASEAN Exchanges collaboration aims to
promote the growth of the ASEAN capital markets by increasing ASEAN investment
opportunities to more investors and promoting greater liquidity amongst members. The
group has several key focus areas including educating local investors on equity trading; providing
them with a platform to source information and trade ideas; promoting cross
border equity trading within the ASEAN region and attracting capital inflows to
spur trading volumes.


Refinitiv’s unique
content, data sets and analytics have been integrated into ASEAN
Exchanges newly launched website offering a “one-stop shop” of real time

a competitive edge.


According to a recent report by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, economic
growth in the ASEAN region continues to average 5.4% and with a population of
650 million and fast-growing wealth, it is also becoming an economic
superpower. Singapore’s
Prime Minister, Lee Hsien Loong, has predicted that ASEAN will become the
fourth largest economy in the world by 2030.


“ASEAN is a dynamic and fast-growing
part of the world, providing compelling investment and growth
opportunities.  Refinitiv is at the
forefront of providing the data, information and infrastructure needed to
empower markets, investors, businesses and companies. We are proud to support ASEAN
