Company Registration in Singapore for Foreign Business Owners and Entrepreneurs

One of the ‘Four Asian Tigers’, Singapore is a well established and diversified place to run a business. In just over four decades, Singapore has established a thriving financial centre of international repute, serving not only its domestic economy but also the wider Asia Pacific region and in some instances, the world.

Singapore’s financial centre offers a broad range of financial services including banking, insurance, investment banking and treasury services, which is why Singapore is such a popular choice for company incorporation.

Singapore’s financial centre

A key aspect of Singapore’s success as a financial centre is its deep and liquid capital markets. With one of the more well-established capital markets in Asia-Pacific, the Singapore Exchange (SGX) is the preferred listing location of close to 800 global companies. Today, Singapore has grown to be the largest Real Estate Investment Trust (REITs) market in Asia ex-Japan and also provides an extensive offering of investments in business trusts of shipping, aviation and infrastructure assets.

International Financial HUB

Singapore is a leading provider of services such as international banking, trade finance, maritime finance, insurance, treasury operations, and asset and wealth management. Singapore is also the fourth largest foreign exchange trading centre in the world after London, New York and Tokyo.

One of the top four global financial centres in the world, Singapore is also the second-largest over the counter derivatives trading centre in Asia, and a leading commodities derivatives trading hub.

There are over 121 commercial banks with over 115 foreign banks and 3 representative offices of banks in Singapore, all of which play an active role in banking and finance. Singapore also has total assets under management of around S$1.2 trillion and is considered as one of the premier asset management locations in Asia.

Ease of Doing Business

Singapore is an ideal location to expand your business into a global market.  Strong trade and investment make Singapore the most competitive Asian country and arguably the world’s easiest place to do business.

Transparent and Consistent Policies

In addition, Singapore is a safe, pro-business environment that is supported by a well-respected government. The Singapore government is typically very transparent and has policies that protect companies’ physical and intellectual-property investments.

There is little red-tape for doing business in Singapore and it is one of the least corrupt countries in the world and the least corrupt nation in all of Asia. It also boasts a well-developed infrastructure that meets all the needs of the business industry and is ranked as one of the top countries in the world for its infrastructure capabilities.
