SGX - Beating the Benchmark Index: Update on How Offshore Investors Can Pick Top Indian Stocks December 12, 2019 4:00 ET

With worries of a US recession and China slowdown, many investors are diversifying to markets like India. Although India has surpassed the UK and France to become the world’s 5th largest economy, the sub-continent remains far more difficult for foreign investors to access very few Indian companies listed outside India. For many offshore traders, SGX single stock futures on the Indian companies are the best way to select individual blue chip names rather than having to bundle the whole index. This webinar provides an offshore view on these top 50 stocks, an updated outlook on India’s economy and overall market, and discusses some long and short trading strategies on these Singapore-listed Indian contracts.
