Malaysian Financial Market Developments

Investing in the Malaysian Financial Market

A well-functioning financial market plays a critical role in the development of a country's real economy. This is even more important for highly open economies like Malaysia, where the exchange rate is an important element in trade and investment. Bank Negara Malaysia continually undertakes initiatives to broaden and deepen the Malaysian financial markets. With its multi-dimensional strategies and initiatives, Bank Negara Malaysia aims to reset the direction of the onshore market, strengthen the pillars of the onshore financial markets as well as enhance the market resiliency.
