About Securities Commission Malaysia

Established in 1993, the Securities Commission Malaysia (SC) is a self-funding statutory body set up by the Ministry of Finance with a dual mandate to facilitate the orderly development of the capital market, as well as to regulate to uphold investor protection and maintain the integrity of the market.

The SC has been tasked to develop an innovative, competitive and vibrant capital market. Since the SC’s establishment two decades ago, Malaysia now has a capital market size of RM2.6 trillion (about 2.5 times GDP), the world’s largest sukuk market, 4th largest bond market in Asia, and largest unit trust industry in ASEAN with widespread levels of participation from confident and informed investors.

The SC, in celebration of its 20th Anniversary with the theme of Leading, Defining, Transforming in 2013, is the main regulator for the securities and derivatives markets in Malaysia. We are entrusted with a broad range of investigative and enforcement powers from the Securities Commission Act 1993, the Capital Markets and Services Act 2007 and the Securities Industry (Central Depositories) Act 1991.

The organisation supervises market operators, market intermediaries and all matters relating to securities, derivatives contracts and unit trust schemes. We also register prospectuses of corporations and funds, approve corporate bond issues and regulate corporate mergers and acquisitions. Underpinning all these functions is the SC’s ultimate responsibility of protecting investors.
