SGX, SIM University team up to provide investor education to the public

Singapore Exchange (SGX) is working with SIM University (UniSIM) to develop and provide investor education to the public.

They signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on Feb 20 to collaborate for an initial two years.

This is also part of UniSIM's Continuing Education and Training programme to make university-level education accessible.

Both will develop the content of financial and investment-related courses for the programme.

Some courses will follow UniSIM's academic requirements and carry academic credits which count towards a UniSIM degree.

These courses are targeted at the public, and are also open to current students in non-finance related programmes.

Seminars, workshops and other activities will be organised to promote financial literacy, apart from the courses.

More than 3,000 are expected to benefit under this partnership.

Professor Tsui Kai Chong, provost of SIM University said: "We are delighted to work with SGX to assist individuals to strengthen their financial health through financial literacy. This MOU is another milestone in our vision to empowering society through lifelong education."

SGX executive vice-president Chew Sutat added: "These programmes from UniSIM and SGX will help Singaporeans to better manage their retirement planning through regular investing."
