The 20th Malaysian Capital Market Summit
2015 marks the 20th Anniversary of the Malaysian Capital Market Summit organized every year by the Asian Strategy & Leadership Institute (ASLI). The Malaysian Capital Market Summit is a high-level annual event bringing together Government Leaders and Market Players to feel the pulse of the market, assess the economic challenges ahead and determine the direction of the capital market in the coming year.
The Malaysian Capital Market Summit has been widely recognized as the leading Forum focusing specifically on the Malaysian Capital Market and the issues and challenges facing the market and the investment opportunities in Malaysian bonds and equities. The Summit is an important barometer of the capital market and enables participants to take stock of the state of the economy and the market. It provides a healthy interchange of views on how to make the market more attractive.
This year the Malaysian Capital Market Summit will meet under more difficult challenges. Global economic uncertainties, the Yuan devaluation, the strengthening of US interest rates and the outflow of foreign funds will dampen market sentiment. Political issues and increased racial tensions will also impact on investor confidence. However, the establishment of the Special Economic Committee to deal with the global and regional headwinds and domestic economic challenges will result in measures to face the difficult times ahead. The economic fundamentals of Malaysia remain strong and economic growth has been robust in the 1st and 2nd quarters. The 20th Malaysian Capital Market Summit will enable participants to evaluate the changing political and economic landscape and how the Malaysian market will cope with future challenges.
