Enabling a More Relevant, Efficient and Diversified Market

Capital markets are constantly evolving and innovating, impacted by global and domestic events and shaped by the growth of technological advancement. It is therefore essential for the SC to ensure its regulatory approach remains prudent yet progressive to maintain confidence in the integrity and fairness of the capital markets, while spurring its progress and development. In 2022, the SC strengthened the surveillance and supervision of markets, intermediaries and regulated individuals. This was done mainly through focusing on a number of strategic priorities to build resilience and trust in our markets by encouraging good conduct through the promotion of responsible businesses, enhancing governance standards as well as cultivating self-regulation and a compliance culture. Effective enforcement actions were also carried out to raise standards of behaviour and deter misconduct while investor protection initiatives were implemented to further bolster market confidence and stability.

To ensure the SC’s long-term operational and technology resilience, work has commenced towards the development of a centralised data platform and an application architecture to boost the SC’s overall technology adoption. Focus has been on enhancing the overall gatekeeping, surveillance, supervision, and investor protection functions of the SC, as well as greater knowledge sharing.

As digitalisation and democratisation reshape how capital markets operate, the SC is committed towards ensuring that the investment and funding ecosystem is in line with the market’s changing needs.

Given the urgent need in meeting the sustainable development and climate goals, sustainable finance and investment continue to be on the growth trajectory globally.

The SC continues to chart its strategic direction to drive a broader and deeper ICM, expanding its reach and value proposition.

As Malaysians accumulate wealth, there continues to be a need to develop an advice-centric approach to assist investors to navigate their financial futures.
