SC: Capital Market to Operate as Usual
17 March 2020   |   Kuala Lumpur

Following the special announcement by YAB Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on the Movement Control Order, the capital market, as a critical component of Malaysia’s financial sector, will operate as usual within normal trading hours. This will allow investors to make informed and timely decisions and execute the same, without impediment.

“All Exchanges will continue to operate in a fair and orderly manner, with all necessary regulatory oversight in place. The Securities Commission Malaysia (SC) has, already in place, business continuity measures including backup sites, recovery facilities and alternative communications channels to identify, manage and mitigate potential and emerging risks,” said Datuk Syed Zaid Albar, SC Chairman.

The SC will closely monitor all market related activities, and the exchanges and capital market intermediaries to ensure they continue to facilitate transparent, efficient and effective capital market activities, including clearing, settlement and depository operations.

The SC and Bursa Malaysia have been proactively monitoring the national and global development of Covid-19 to assess its impact and will continue to evaluate and calibrate the scale of their responses in order to maintain market integrity.
