PULSES, the monthly financial magazine currently published by the Singapore Exchange (SGX), will be produced by The Business Times (BT) from January.

Pulses is a dedicated finance magazine with comprehensive data on Singapore's securities and derivatives markets.

It is distributed monthly to 10,000 subscribers, including retail investors, as well as fund managers and brokers.

BT senior correspondent Teh Hooi Ling will be the magazine's editor, with other BT writers pitching in with their reports and analyses.

BT editor Alvin Tay said: 'It's a familiar partnership. SGX and BT have been running the highly successful Singapore Corporate Awards for the past two years and we have been a media supporter of the SGX Bull Run since it began in 2004.'

Mr Daniel Tan, SGX's executive vice-president and head of retail business and development, said: 'We are confident that we have found the right partner to take Pulses to the next level.'

Readers can expect a more engaging and incisive read, as BT will be harnessing the newsroom's financial expertise for each month's issue.

BT's Ms Teh said: 'Everybody should take an interest in making their money work hard for them.

'With the magazine, we will try to give readers the insights and analysis that will help them make better and more informed investment decisions.'

She writes a weekly personal finance column in BT.

Pulses was formerly called the SES Journal and has been in circulation since 1973.

It was relaunched as Pulses in December 1999. Sold at $5.50 each, it can be found in bookstores and news-stands in the Central Business District.

From the January 2008 issue, Pulses will be distributed by Singapore Press Holdings.
