One-on-One Interview: Ng Kok Song

John Jacob Ballroom I

Ng Kok Song is Chair of GIC Global Investments and a member of its International Advisory Board. He pioneered the establishment of the Singapore International Monetary Exchange, the first financial futures exchange in Asia and became its first chairman from 1984 to 1987. Together with CME chairman Leo Melamed, Ng created the mutual offset arrangement between the two exchanges in 1984, one of the earliest and most successful exchange linkages in the history of the derivatives industry. It was also under Ng’s leadership that SIMEX launched its Nikkei 225 futures contract – the world’s first Nikkei futures contract and still the flagship futures contract in the exchange’s comprehensive suite of Asian derivatives product offerings.
