Digital Initiatives
Over the years, the SC has embarked on efforts to enable both investors and issuers to benefit from market-based financing avenues. The rise of the digital-savvy and connected generation of investors has necessitated innovative investment solutions which offer greater convenience, channel access, transparency and lower cost.
  • Equity Crowdfunding (ECF)
    ECF is a form of fundraising that allows start-ups or other smaller enterprises to obtain capital through small equity investments using online platforms to publicise and facilitate such offers to a crowd of investors.

    Funding obtained from ECF can be described as `patient capital’ where investors take equity stakes in new companies and are expected to maintain that stake in a long-term manner. The low minimum investment threshold is also meant to attract participation from first-time investors who may choose this type of investment as their first asset class due to having a passion or interest in a particular business or venture.

    Key regulation for ECF operators can be found in in the Guidelines on Recognized Markets, in addition to other relevant regulations and guidelines.

  • Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Financing
    P2P financing is a form of digital innovation that broadens the ability of businesses to obtain financing from a pool of investors via an online platform. Similar to a loan, P2P financing investors provide capital in return for interest payment and repayment of the capital.
    The SC regulates P2P financing platform operators by registering them as Recognised Market Operators.

    Key regulation for P2P financing operators can be found in the Guidelines on Recognized Markets, in addition to other relevant regulations and guidelines.

  • Digital Asset Exchange (DAX)
    Digital Asset Exchange is an online platform which facilitates the trading of digital assets. Regulations are being put in place to bring the issuance and trading of digital assets within the remit of securities laws to promote fair and orderly trading and ensure investor protection.

    In order to implement the regulatory framework on digital assets, the SC and Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) entered into co-ordination arrangements to ensure compliance with laws and regulations under the purview of both regulators.
