SC holds roadshow for dealer's representatives on impact of Capital Market Masterplan

Kuala Lumpur, 19 June 2001

The Securities Commission of Malaysia (SC) today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with its Indian counterpart, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) to strengthen communication channels and establish a framework for assistance and mutual cooperation between the two parties.

The roadshow, which will cover eight states and run over four months starting 23 June (this Saturday) in Kuala Lumpur, aims to impress upon dealer's representatives the need to be able to respond effectively to changing consumer demands, technological developments and the increasing integration of financial services on the competitiveness of the services they render.

"The roadshow is part of the Commission's continuing efforts to ensure that market intermediaries are prepared in all fundamentals to meet the challenges of the changing market landscape," said Siow Kim Lun, the Market Supervision director of the Commission.

"It is also to help them make a gradual and effective transition from their current operating environment to a more liberalised one."

In line with this, the roadshow will cover topics, specially-tailored for dealer's representatives, such as "The Capital Market Masterplan: A Road Map for the Way Forward" and "The Challenging Role of Dealer's Representatives: Opportunities Engendered by the CMP" and "Challenges for the Industry: Enhancing Competitiveness".

The team of speakers will include Siow and the Commission head of Licensing, Dr Mohd Hatta Dagap. Also sharing their experience will be Md Nor Ahmad, Deputy President I, Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange (KLSE) and Dr Chandra Kumar, a senior remisier from CIMB Securities (see attached programme).
