The UOB SGS Index is designed to provide Singapore fund managers and interest rate market participants with a Singapore government bond index calculated using internationally accepted practices. The Index is an accumulation index incorporating price and income components covering only Singapore government bonds. This Index will allow treasurers, fund managers, plan sponsors (or trustees) and consultants the first consistent way to measure the performance of the Singapore fixed interest market.
Note that the UOB SESDAQ Index was renamed UOB Catalist Index in 2007, following the revamp of the former Singapore second board SESDAQ as a sponsor-supervised listing platform for fast-growing local and international companies.
