Singapore Banking and Finance: Trends and Developments

21 Nov 2023 LegisWatch

The recent article “Singapore: Trends and Developments” authored by Susan Wong (Head, Banking & Finance), Christy Lim (Deputy Head, Banking & Finance) and Felix Lee (Partner, Banking & Finance) discusses trends and developments in the Singapore banking and finance space in 2023. These include the rising popularity of green and sustainability-linked loans, the emergence of transition financing, the prevalence of peer-to-peer lending, the resurgence of Islamic financing, the state of play in the real estate financing sector and interesting developments relating to acquisition financing.

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) financing solutions once again take centre stage in the Singapore banking and finance space in 2023 as greater emphasis continues to be placed on the accountability of businesses and corporate actors in relation to ESG issues (with global credit-rating agencies beginning to differentiate credits based on ESG attributes).

The article first appeared in Chambers Global Practice Guides – Banking & Finance 2023.
