The capital and financial market folks made their way to the gurdwara over the weekend. Some 60 Sikhs engaged in the two markets converged at a gurdwara in Kuala Lumpur on Nov 9 (Sunday) for what looks set to be their annual second gathering.
Hosted by Sikh staff from Bursa Malaysia Bhd, the Malaysian stock exchange, they spent the first half of their Sunday at Gurdwaras Sahib Parliament, so-named as it is located a short distance from the nation’s legislative houses. It is also within walking distance to headquarters of Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM), the nation’s central bank.
Among senior folks who attended the second annual function were Securities Commission Malaysia Executive Chairman Datuk Ranjit Ajit Singh, BNM Deputy Govenor Dr Sukhdave Singh, Bursa Malaysia Derivatives Bhd Senior Executive Vice President (SEVP) K Sree Kumar and Bursa Malaysia SEVP (Listing Division) Inderjit Singh.
Giani Surinder Singh was the guest kirtani while Dr Karminder Singh Dhillon, a senior officer from the Ministry of Defence, was the guest speaker.
The event gathers Sikhs involved in the stock exchange, broking firms, banks and the regulators.
