Singapore has one of the largest global foreign exchange and over-the-counter commodity derivatives markets in the world, and has seen the number of commodities companies double in the past decade. 80% of the largest oil, metals and agriculture players have significant presences here. As a result of technological advancements, key decision makers have a huge appetite to embrace change and challenge the status-quo. This has translated into an increased use of advanced predictive data analytics, IOT solutions, and disruptive technologies such as blockchain.
