Date: January 18, 2012

“SIAS Management Committee is delighted to announce that Mr Hsieh Fu Hua has been appointed as its 2nd Honorary Chairman w.e.f 2nd January 2012. Since our first Honorary Chairman, Mr Tan Chok Kian stepped down in September 2010, after serving 3 years, SIAS has been looking out for a candidate who has the passion for the retail investors’ cause and believes strongly in what SIAS stands for. During his tenure as the CEO of SGX, Mr Hsieh showed keen interest in SIAS. He was supportive of our investor education initiatives and we found him truly interested in the well being of the retail investor community. He initiated and was, in fact, the driving force in building a stronger relationship between SGX and the retail investing community. He took the communication level between SIAS and SGX to a higher level. Mr Hsieh Fu Hua was awarded the Special Recognition Award by SIAS at the 2011 Investors’ Choice Awards Ceremony for his significant contribution to SIAS and the retail community.

Mr Tan Chok Kian, the immediate Past Chairman of SIAS said “I’m very pleased that Hsieh Fu Hua has accepted this appointment. I am quite sure that he will take SIAS to an even higher level of achievement.”

Mr Hsieh, as the Honorary Chairman, brings with him the necessary industry knowledge and experience to help SIAS move to the next level of growth. His first term will be for a period of three years.”
