Singapore Exchange (SGX) says it has appointed Tan Boon Gin  as chief regulatory officer effective June 15th this year.  Tan is currently director of the exchange’s commercial affairs department.
Following the departure of Richard Teng on 28 February 2015, in the interim, Yeo Lian Sim, special adviser to SGX and previously chief risk and regulatory officer, will be appointed as chief regulatory officer from today until June 14th.
“I am pleased to welcome Boon Gin to SGX. His extensive experience and knowledge of Singapore’s regulatory and corporate investigation environment will be a significant addition to our bench strength as we continue to enhance our markets and regulatory function. I am confident Boon Gin will contribute to the success of SGX as a world-class market operator and regulator,” says Magnus Bocker, CEO of SGX.

Tan was previously a Justices’ Law Clerk at Singapore’s Supreme Court and a Deputy Public Prosecutor at the Attorney-General’s Chambers, where he specialised in corruption and white-collar crime, before leaving to practise at Messrs Sullivan & Cromwell in New York.

He later served as a District Judge at Singapore’s Subordinate Courts before being seconded to the Monetary Authority of Singapore, where he held appointments as Director of the Enforcement Division, Director of the Corporate Finance Division and Executive Director of the Investment Intermediaries Department.

He is an advocate and solicitor and holds degrees from the University of Cambridge and Harvard Law School.
Mr Tan was awarded the Public Administration (Silver) Medal in 2010.
