Statement by Financial Market Committee on post Brexit

Ref No : 06/16/09 30 Jun 2016 Embargo : For immediate release    

Post Brexit referendum, the Malaysian markets have been resilient and continuing to operate in an orderly manner, facilitating smooth intermediation activities among the market participants.

Key domestic markets including the government bonds, corporate bonds and money markets were stable and the domestic markets continue to have ample liquidity. For the Ringgit foreign exchange market, despite higher than usual volatility, liquidity remains supported and financial market participants are able to transact and execute their business without any disruptions.

Bank Negara Malaysia will continue to monitor these developments and work with the Financial Market Committee members, including taking proactive measures, to address any further volatility that could re-emerge from the transition process to ensure orderly functioning of our financial markets.
