The words 'chickens' 'home' and 'roost' come to mind. Presumably the mindless bigots on TRE etc. will be delighted to see everything falling down and foreigners leaving.

Ironic, Singapore is the wealth management hub of Asia, yet its own bourse gets no love by investors. Obviously when high growth stocks trade on Mumbai, Shanghai and Jakarta exchanges

The loans are worth over $181m.
UOB is reported to be suing a subsidiary of Lippo Group along with seven other debtors over loan defaults on 38 Sentosa condominium units.

According to Maybank Kim Eng, the borrowers have over $181m in housing loans for the purchase of 38 condominium units at the Marina Collection in Sentosa. 37 out of the 38 loans that UOB financed have defaulted.

UOB claimed that it was not informed of the 22-34% discounts offered for the units and that the buyers had
secured inflated home loans from the bank.

More depositors are ditching the Singapore dollar as its weakness against the greenback intensifies. Data from JP Morgan show that local currency deposit growth has slowed to a crawl since the beginning of 2014, reflecting expectations of an even weaker currency.

By contrast, foreign currency deposits have increased by over $2b in the past six months, the largest semiannual rise in the past decade.
