A) Equity Crowdfunding (ECF)
Malaysia is the first country in ASEAN to introduce a regulatory framework to facilitate equity crowdfunding in 2015, with six registered equity crowdfunding (ECF) platform operators fully operationalised in 2016.
The ECF platforms provide an alternative venue for capital-raising to SMEs and innovative new businesses.

B) Peer-to-peer Financing (P2P)
P2P financing is a web-based innovation that broadens the ability of entrepreneurs and small business owners to unlock capital from a pool of individual investors in small amounts and provides a quick turnaround time to obtain financing for their businesses, through an online digital platform.
The SC announced the regulatory framework for P2P financing in 2016, and approved six P2P operators later in the year.
The P2P framework is part of SC’s on-going effort to provide greater access to market-based financing through the application of innovative technology solutions.
