Top 30 companies from Singapore’s STI

Singapore's 30 largest listed companies

Singapore’s Straits Times index – the main stock index of Singapore – is composed of the 30 largest public listed companies which greatly influence the economy of Red Dot, Southeast Asia and the world. The following list presents these economic heavyweights and their activities, together with useful links.

List of the 30 components of the STI index

Singapore Exchange logoLarge companies in Singapore usually become Public Limited Companies (PLC) to be able to obtain capital from stock markets. The term “Limited”, shows that these companies’ liability is limited to their capital.

In Singapore, publicly listed companies are quoted in the Singapore Exchange, which is in charge of the trading of stocks and enforcing rules to ensure proper market conditions. The Singapore Exchange is itself a component of the Straits Times Index and a member of the ASEAN Exchanges.

To ease the appreciation and exchanges of securities of the Singaporean market, the stock prices of the thirty largest public listed companies of Singapore are compiled together to form the FTSE Straits Times Index – abbreviated FTSE STI or simply STI -, a capitalization-weighted index that is widely accepted as the benchmark index of Singapore.

The FTSE STI index

The real time quotation of the FTSE Straits Times Index – FTSE STI – can be followed from the Singapore Exchange’s website as well as from the convenient graphical tools of Yahoo FinanceBloomberg or the ASEAN Exchanges. For more information on the STI index and the up-to-date weights of each stock, check the information from the FTSE website.
