Bursa Malaysia, Malaysia’s exchange holding company, is assisting the country’s capital market and also enhancing global competitiveness.
Essentially an exchange holding company, Bursa Malaysia operates a fully-integrated exchange, offering a comprehensive and diverse range of exchange-related services including trading, clearing, settlement and depository services. The Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange, which was incorporated in 1976 as a company limited by guarantee, took over the operations of the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange Berhad in the same year. On 14 April 2004, it was christened Bursa Malaysia Berhad.
Today, Bursa Malaysia is one of the largest bourses in Asia with nearly 1,000 listed companies offering an array of investment choices to the world, and is committed to maintaining an efficient, secure and active trading market for local and global investors alike.
