  • Spotlight this year is on how emerging technologies and ESG are shaping Asia’s role in the future of finance
  • Special category to accept submissions only from next-generation investors, broadening efforts to foster financial education

Singapore Exchange (SGX Group) today launched the sixth edition of its annual SGX Orb Awards to recognise excellence in financial journalism and content. For the first time, this year’s special category will accept entries only from next-generation investors – students from around the world with an interest in the financial markets – challenging them to imagine the future of finance and Asia’s role in it.

With rising adoption of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and growing interest in Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) investing, the SGX Orb Awards this year is turning its spotlight to how these opportunities can accelerate market innovation, transform risk management and reinforce trust and efficiency.

Launched in 2018, the SGX Orb Awards is part of SGX Group’s broadening efforts to foster financial literacy and empower investors. Each year, the initiative attracts submissions from local and international content producers that include written pieces, audio-visual work as well as illustrations. Participants include the print and broadcast media, online news sites backed by publishing or editorial companies, as well as independent writers such as bloggers or investment websites. With this year’s special category, the next generation of investors can have a voice too.

Judging will be conducted by a distinguished independent panel. Members of the public can nominate and vote for their preferred entries among the shortlisted contenders, and the winners in five categories will be unveiled in September 2023. More information can be found at https://www.sgx.com/sgx-orb-awards.
