Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX:S68) has named Gautam Banerjee chairman of its newly established Listings Advisory Committee (LAC).
The Exchange has set up three new committees, including the LAC, as it seeks to strengthen the listing policy-making and review process, and enhance how Listing Rules are enforced.
Eric Ang and Francis Xavier, Senior Counsel (SC) will chair the Listings Disciplinary Committee (LDC) and the Listings Appeals Committee (LApC) respectively.
The three appointments were made in consultation with the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).
“My committee and I look forward to bringing practitioner experience as well as an independent view to SGX’s listing admission process. With the Listings Advisory Committee in place, investors and the overall market will benefit from an even more robust regulatory process and framework in Singapore,” said Gautam Banerjee, chairman of the LAC.
Gautam Banerjee is Chairman of Blackstone Singapore and a member of the International Advisory Board. Prior to that, Mr. Banerjee served as Executive Chairman of PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Singapore for nine years until his retirement in December 2012.
Mr. Banerjee is a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) and the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants (ISCA). He graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Honours) degree from Warwick University in 1977 and was awarded an Honorary Doctor of Laws (LLD) by the same university in 2014.
