Let’s talk about the news of the Global Investor Magazine. It speaks of the global drive for data that was being carried out across Singapore. Different loans were emphasized. This includes the stock loan, business loan and importantly the secured and unsecured foreigner loan. This loans had been mishandled especially in the south eastern parts of Asia. It had lead to a financial crisis. It was known by the public when the Office Financial Research (OFR) was doing market data mining. The various investment in the region has resulted in a critical gap in the Asian market.
This issue has been overlooked. The appropriate offices had not taken any much caution. They have not ensured that the loopholes leading to loss of funds through the loans were closed. Another important thing they have not done is the governmental department’s scope, and accessibility of the financial information was not improved.
Money marketing funds, credit ratings, liquidity, bank holding companies and central counter parties are some of the leading causes of this situation. These were misused by the individuals and departments involved. It leads to the loss of public money. There was a suggestion from the recent report by the government auditor. It suggested that the OFR should manage and take care of all the above factor. With that, the same mistakes that happened should not be repeated in as much as loans are concerned.
Additionally, the OFR reported about the security lending activities in South East Asia in the last one year. They based the report on the data they received from seven different sources. This were various investments and how they affect the economy in the region. It was a very crucial and significant information. It would offer the way forward in public securities, and the proper management of the fund is involved.
Asia being the world’s largest security lending market is closely followed by OFR. Various European countries have also shown interest in collaboration. These countries, effort though has not been put in place. This market is gaining popularity from many other related markets. It has worked tremendously in implementing the securities financing transactions regulation. For years, an effort was made by European market including the one managed by the European Union. They tried to implement the rules and regulations across the various market. But all efforts failed terribly.
They also tried to enforce the various collateral chains to the approved European Union trade repository. But unfortunately, they didn’t do well as expected. Because of the achievements by the Asian market, everyone is talking about it all over the world.
