THE issue of dual-class shares has come closer to home. Just about a week ago, Singapore Exchange Ltd (SGX) said it was jumping on the bandwagon, preparing to allow for the listing of such shares on its stock exchange.

This move comes hot on the heels of a similar decision by Hong Kong last month.
