SC Promotes IOSCO’s World Investor Week
5 October 2017   |   Kuala Lumpur
The International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) launched its first World Investor Week (WIW) on 2nd – 8th October 2017 to promote greater investor education and protection worldwide. Throughout the week, securities regulators from more than 80 countries across the globe are providing a variety of activities to increase the awareness of investor education and protection in their own jurisdictions.
Securities Commission Malaysia (SC) in support of WIW is carrying out two initiatives. In order to raise awareness on the increased number of reported scams and illegal investment schemes, SC is screening an anti-scam awareness video called ‘T.I.P.U video’ at selected TGV cinemas nationwide from now until 11 October 2017. The screening of the ‘T.I.P.U video’ is part of SC’s investor education initiative under InvestSmart® and serves as a public service message to highlight the modus operandi of scammers and advise the public on where to seek assistance when they are in doubt.

SC also today hosted a Facebook live chat which featured a panel discussion on financial planning, themed “FinPlan4U – A Step Towards Financial Health And Wellness”. The live chat session featured experts from SC, Financial Planning Association Malaysia (FPAM) as well as an award-winning financial planner on the benefits of engaging a financial planner towards securing a financial future.

On 13 – 15 October 2017, SC will be organising its annual flagship event InvestSmart Fest 2017 (ISF 2017) themed “Invest For Your Future” at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (Exhibition Hall 5) that will gather capital market institutions, associations, industry players and relevant agencies under one roof in order to raise awareness on investment opportunities available in the Malaysian capital market. The public can register for a free initial assessment by a licensed financial planner during ISF 2017 by emailing their name, IC number and contact details to [email protected]. Seats are limited.
