Malaysians have a chance to understand better about investment and financial planning at a three-day programme organised by the Securities Commission of Malaysia (SC).

InvestSmart Fest 2017, officiated by Malaysian Youth and Sports Malaysia Khairy Jamalauddin at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, ends tomorrow (15 Oct 2017).

“This year, we have assembled a strong line of industry experts to share with you insights on retirement planning, smart investing for women and how digitisation affects investment decisions,” SC executive chairman Ranjit Ajit Singh said in his opening speech yesterday.

Held annually, the event aims to promote financial and investment literacy in order to enhance investor empowerment.

In his speech, Khairy said one reason scams are popular with the young people is because they “make it easy and they go down to their level of understanding. It’s simple for them to understand.”

Since the launch of InvestSmart in 2014, the SC said it has reached out to over 1 million Malaysians through seminars, roadshows, and engagement with community leaders (SC-In-The-Community Programme) nationwide. The use of digital channels such as websites, Facebook page and mobile app has allowed SC to also reach out to the tech-savvy and younger Malaysian demography.
