The working group will make recommendations to improve the securities market's operational resilience in the event of trading disruptions.

The 13-member body is chaired by Mr Ho Tian Yee, a board member of DBS Group Holdings and chairman of Fullerton Fund Management Co.

The other members include local and international members of the SGX's securities market, representatives from the investment community, independent experts and software vendors.

"In making their recommendations, the IWG will take into consideration the findings from feedback garnered from members and participants as well as SGX's own investigations following the July 14 market disruption," it said.

It will review and give recommendations in such areas as back-up systems, processes and protocols in the light of disruptions.

It will also look at communication and maintenance issues and ways to familiarise and test the readiness of the SGX and its market participants to respond to market disruptions.
