Closing Bell: The Pan El Saga Revisited

Closing Bell: The Pan El Saga Revisited

20 October 2022 | 4pm - 5.30pm | Havelock Hall, State Courts Towers | Free


When Pan-Electric Industries collapsed in December 1985, all its shares held by 5,500 shareholders were deemed worthless overnight. The demise of Pan El forced the stock exchanges of both Singapore and Malaysia to shut down for three days. The Pan El crisis also catalysed the passage of a new regulatory framework for the stockbroking industry. We invite you to take a ringside seat as leading stockbroking figure Mr Lim Hua Min and veteran journalist Mr Conrad Raj recount being in the thick of Singapore’s largest corporate collapse, and the only instance when the Stock Exchange of Singapore had to close. Mr Tan Boon Gin from the Singapore Exchange Regulation will take us to the present to discuss the event’s impact on today’s stock market regulation. Their discussion will be moderated by respected financial journalist Mr Tan Ooi Boon.
