Lim, who has a penchant for the minimalist aesthetic, prefers unbroken expanses and clean lines in his living and working areas. Using a play of natural light, soft colours and crisp detail, he goes for serene, uncluttered spaces that are simple yet stylish.

Responsible investing – the way to optimal returns and a sustainable future

In line with global best practices the Singapore Stock Exchange has launched two new initiatives to spur public listed companies to focus on sustainability. These are:
1. Mandating that all SGX listed firms publish Sustainability reports disclosing their environmental, social and governance impact. These reports have to be published at least annually on a “comply or explain basis” from FY 2017 onwards.
2. Launch of four new Sustainability indices.
