SmallChange SGX needs to give a bigger lift to small investors

By Dennis Chan

For a long time, my preferred investment destination has been the stock market. But it dawned on me recently that this isn't the case any more as I sifted through the hotchpotch holdings in my stock portfolio.

Last year I went to the market only four times and bought a modest amount of shares. I sold nothing. Ten years ago, my transactions were around 10 times more.

I believe I'm not an exception but a symptom of the general malaise that has fallen on the stock market as far as retail investors are concerned.

Retail participation in the market has declined significantly today, compared with the heyday of Clob in the mid-1990s and the S-chip mania in the noughties up until the 2008 global financial crisis.
