The Finance Index was the main supporter of the benchmark index, bolstered by heavyweights Hong Leong Bank, Public Bank and Hong Leong Bank, having inched up 84.07 points.

Philippine shares rose for a third session to a five-week closing high on Monday as investors further built holdings in large caps such as SM Investments Corp while most other Southeast Asian stocks came off the day's highs in light volume.
Jakarta's Composite Index closed up 0.06 percent at 4,635.73 after a 1 percent drop at one point amid weaker rupiah
