"I’ve been a corporate lawyer, a central banker, a policeman, and now, a market regulator. This experience helps me to see things from different perspectives and focus on interests, rather than positions."


Mr Tan Boon Gin joined SGX as Chief Regulatory Officer on 15 June 2015.  He now heads Singapore Exchange Regulation, an independent regulatory subsidiary of SGX, which undertakes all front-line regulatory functions to promote a fair, orderly and transparent market.

Before joining SGX, Mr Tan was the Director of the Commercial Affairs Department of the Singapore Police Force.  Prior to this, Mr Tan held several appointments at the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) including Director of the Enforcement Division, the Corporate Finance Division and Executive Director of the Investment Intermediaries Department.  

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