Singapore Governance & Transparency Index

Content Summary

Company boards and senior management face increasingly complex challenges in today’s fast-changing business landscape. Uplifting governance and transparency standards are key strategic business priorities if companies intend to retain the confidence of their investors and stakeholders.

Sound corporate governance is the foundation on which companies build their reputation. It’s critical for directors and management to provide effective stewardship for their companies to excel.

The GTI, a pioneering initiative for the Singapore market, is aimed at assessing all companies listed on the Singapore Exchange on their corporate governance disclosure and practices, as well as the timeliness, accessibility and transparency of their financial results announcements.

In 2016, we renewed our commitment to a higher bar for governance with our sponsorship of an enhanced Singapore Governance and Transparency Index (SGTI). With the SGTI, we hope that Singapore-listed companies will continue their positive progress in strengthening governance locally, while continuing to align with global standards.

About the SGTI

The SGTI builds on the seven-year track record of the GTI by incorporating the inclusion of G20/OECD Principles of Corporate Governance. The upgrade makes the SGTI even more comprehensive and well-positioned for ongoing global developments in corporate governance.

The SGTI is a collaboration of CPA Australia, the Centre for Governance and Sustainability at NUS Business School, and the Singapore Institute of Directors. Leading business newspaper The Business Times supports the index.

SGTI 2021

Singapore-listed companies and trusts managed to uphold high standards of governance and transparency despite the pandemic, reflecting their strong commitment to improving corporate governance and sustainability disclosures.

The mean score in the General Category of the Singapore Governance and Transparency Index (SGTI) 2021 rose to an all-time high score of 68.7 points.
