                                  By harnessing these digital tools, we aim to streamline processes and address emerging challenges in this dynamic digital age.
The SC remains unwavering in our resolve to strengthen our regulatory framework and uphold market integrity, not least because we continue to be measured against global regulatory standards. In fact, Malaysia will be subject to the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) evaluation exercise in 2025.
We will also continue to pursue engagements and collaborations. By fostering partnerships with industry stakeholders and regulatory bodies, both local and global, we can collectively address emerging challenges. Additionally, regular dialogues and knowledge sharing initiatives will enable us to stay abreast of global best practices and adopt these into our regulatory framework accordingly.
We will also invest in talent development and retention. Programmes such as investED, which was launched by Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim, are currently underway to cultivate the next generation of capital market leaders.
As we continue to nurture talent, it is crucial to provide opportunities for continuous learning and skill enhancement. This is to be achieved through collaborations with educational institutions and industry experts, offering specialised courses tailored to the
needs of the industry. Additionally, initiatives such as the Shariah Mentorship Programme can help provide guidance and support to aspiring professionals in the capital market industry.
Furthermore, our commitment to inclusivity extends to supporting tertiary education. We are working with the industry to set up and launch ‘Tabung Kebajikan Pasaran Modal’ for eligible B40 university students targeted for 2024.
These achievements and aspirations stem from the strong commitment and professionalism of the SC staff, to whom I extend deep appreciation. Our progress has been significantly enriched by the invaluable insights from our experienced Board Members. I wish to express my gratitude as we bid farewell to Ms. Lynette Yeow Su-Yin and Datin Rashidah Mohd Sies, and warmly welcome Dato’ Alizatul Khair Osman Khairuddin, Dato’ Mohd Faiz Azmi, Encik Kemal Rizadi Arbi and Datuk Dr. Shahrazat Haji Ahmad to the SC Board. The unwavering support and meaningful perspectives gained through engagements with our industry leaders and international counterparts have benefitted us in strengthening Malaysia’s capital market and propelling it to greater heights.
Dato’ Seri Dr. Awang Adek Hussin
