SC Invites Research Papers for Capital Market Award 2003

Kuala Lumpur, 1 July 2003

The Securities Industry Development Centre (SIDC) of the Securities Commission (SC) is inviting postgraduate students and faculty members of institutions of higher learning, both local and foreign, to submit research papers for the SC Capital Market Award (SC CMA) 2003.

The award, introduced in 1995, aims to create awareness of and encourage quality research on the Malaysian capital market. The SC offers two categories of awards i.e. postgraduate and faculty.

Research papers submitted for the Award must be completed within 12 months prior to the submission deadline, which is 30 November 2003 for this year’s award. Entries must be based on research that include, but not limited to, original data collection through surveys and interviews, original case studies and quantitative or qualitative analysis. Published papers are also eligible for submission as long as the paper is published within 12 months prior to the submission deadline.

“In line with the government’s objective to foster a knowledge economy, the SIDC carries out various developmental and educational programmes for different players in the market – including investors, licensed intermediaries and even directors of public listed companies. By enhancing the knowledge and skills of these players, we are enhancing the quality of the capital market,” said the Head of SIDC, Puan Teh Ija Mohd Jalil.

“The CMA is another programme aimed at enhancing the Malaysian capital market. We hope the CMA will generate interest in research on capital market issues, which can be translated into practical policy ideas. We want to encourage new research in the Malaysian capital market by the academia,” she said.

“The dissemination of non-proprietary research will help promote the development of a sound and sophisticated capital market,” said Puan Teh.

“Since its introduction, the competition has received encouraging response from local and foreign institutions of higher learning. Last year, the SIDC received submissions for both the postgraduate and faculty categories. However, after careful consideration, the CMA Review Committee decided there would be no winners for the year,” she said, adding that each paper goes through rigorous assessment.

This year’s the SC CMA is open to all postgraduate students and faculty members of local and foreign institutions of higher learning, of which each institution is only allowed one entry for each of the postgraduate and faculty categories. The winner for each category will receive a cash prize of RM15,000 and a trophy.
