Singapore’s STI On Track For Highest Annual Price Gain Since 2012
10 January 2018 will mark 10 years since SPH, SGX and FTSE Group revamped the STI as well as the other 18 new indices of the FTSE ST Index Series. This follows 2017 being the 50 year anniversary for the STI and the 15 year anniversary of the listing of the first STI ETF. This year’s STI price performance has been stronger than the long term average annualised gain, which dating back to the end of 1985 is 6.2% p.a. This does not include the STI dividend yield which has averaged 3.5% since 1999.
