    EMERGING MARKETS-Asian markets subdued as Fed promises come up short

After a cautious start which picked up chiefly on the U.S. central bank's promise to use "all tools" to support growth, major markets wobbled, while the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore chalked up significant losses.

The FTSE Straits Times Index slid as much as 2.4%, after the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) called on banks to cap 2020 total dividends at 60% of what they paid out last year as the city-state faces its deepest recession ever in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic that has roiled the global economy.

    Singapore urges banks to cap dividends in face of economic uncertainty

    Singapore asked its banks on Wednesday to cap dividend payments this year to conserve capital and increase capacity to lend to businesses and individuals due to the grim economic outlook caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. With the city-state facing its deepest recession ever, the Monetary Authority of Singapore called on banks to cap total dividends per share for FY2020 at 60% of what they paid out in 2019. MAS also asked locally-incorporated banks headquartered in the city-state to offer shareholders dividends in 2020 in the form of shares instead of cash.

    CORRECTED-Troubled Hin Leong's owners try to block OCBC from picking at shipping units

    The family that owns beleaguered Singaporean oil trader Hin Leong Trading (HLT) is seeking to block creditor OCBC's request to appoint overseers for the family's Xihe Holdings and four other subsidiaries to recoup its debt. Oversea Chinese Banking Corp (OCBC) applied last week for the Singapore High Court to appoint judicial managers over Xihe, owned by the family of Hin Leong founder Lim Oon Kuin, known as O.K. Lim. Kenny Lim Oon Cheng, Xihe Holdings interim chief executive, said in a July 28 affidavit reviewed by Reuters that granting OCBC's request will "disrupt the constructive discussions that the Xihe Group has had with third parties including lenders".

A generally improved mood pushed several of the region's stock markets higher, with South Korean shares and the won outperforming, boosted by a 3% jump for Samsung Electronics and improved consumer sentiment data. Worries about the growing number of coronavirus infections have kept investors on edge this week, denting hopes for a swift global economic recovery and pushing stock markets across the region lower.

    OCBC makes first loan using Singapore's new SORA benchmark

    OCBC has made a S$150 million ($108 million) loan referencing SORA - the Singapore Overnight Average Rate - the first loan to use the new rate, the bank said on Tuesday, part of a major global effort to change lending benchmarks. Singapore's current main lending benchmark, SOR, is calculated using Libor - the London Interbank Offered Rate - which is set to be discontinued at the end of 2021. Authorities demanded the financial industry move away from Libor after several banks were found to have manipulated the benchmark for profit and fined about $9 billion in total.

    OCBC's private banking unit targets bigger slice of booming family offices business

    Bank of Singapore, the private banking arm of lender OCBC, plans to grab a bigger share of the fast-growing family office business by expanding its investment products and targeting clients outside the region, its CEO said. Its assets under management declined to $104 billion in the year to March from $108 billion a year ago due to the market downturn but assets of the segment catering to family offices, which manage the fortunes of the rich, rose 20%. "The family office is a big segment, not only from China but also from the Middle East as well as other parts of the world," Bahren Shaari told Reuters in an interview.

U.S. President Donald Trump warned that Washington would react "very strongly" against China's attempt to gain more control over the former British colony. "The very real threat now, is the return of mass protests to the streets of Hong Kong, a downgrade in trade status with the U.S., and potentially an exit of large companies from the SAR (special administrative region)," said Jeffrey Halley, senior market analyst at OANDA.

    Moody's cuts outlook for Singapore banks on coronavirus fallout

    Moody's downgraded the outlook for Singapore's banking sector to "negative" from "stable", citing risks of rising bad loans and deteriorating profitability due to an economic slowdown and a decline in interest rates amid the coronavirus outbreak. "Credit costs will rise as asset quality worsens, while interest rates will decline due to monetary easing, weighing on net interest margins," the ratings agency said in a report on Thursday. Singapore's three main lenders, DBS Group Holdings Ltd , Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp Ltd and United Overseas Bank Ltd had forecast muted earnings growth for 2020 even before the virus outbreak.

    SINGAPORE/HONG KONG, Feb 25 (Reuters) - Banks are suspending the credit lines for some Chinese independent oil refineries amid rising concerns about overall industrial defaults and as the coronavirus outbreak has eaten into the processors' fuel sales.

DBS Group Holdings in Singapore, France's Natixis and BNP Paribas, and Dutch bank ING have suspended open account credit facilities for the companies based in Shandong province, home to the majority of the independent plants that buy about 20% of China's oil imports, the sources said.
