Two trends will continue develop in South East Asia in 2010: more cross-asset and more cross-border trading. Brokers increasingly want to offer multi-market and multi-asset products to their clients. Such offerings have been facilitated by the development of electronic trading generally and direct market access (DMA) specifically in the region. As clients’ and investors’ demands become more sophisticated, local brokerages will look for new technologies and access to new markets to support multi-asset and multi-trading strategies.
At the same time, cross-border trading is becoming more important for Asian exchanges, especially within ASEAN countries. The stock exchanges of Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, and Philippines have agreed to form an ASEAN electronic trading link. This will allow cross-border trading through a single access point and, should help to further attract international funds.
