Other Services – Financial Services

Financial Services

Banking, insurance, and capital markets (brokerage, fund management, investment advisory, financial planning, clearing houses for securities or derivatives, advising on corporate finance) and venture capital, are the components under the financial services sub-sector.

Banks in Malaysia have strong capitalisation and solid asset quality, allowing them to support economic recovery. Despite headwinds, the domestic banking industry is expected to remain resilient.

Financial institutions are integrating ESG considerations into their practices to promote sustainability, in line with the Financial Sector Blueprint 2022-2026 released by BNM earlier this year. The blueprint aims to support a greener, more climate-resilient economy and financial sector.

Malaysia’s National Bank (BNM) has introduced proactive measures to aid the public and businesses in pandemic mitigation. These encompass loan deferment, restructuring, and refinancing to tackle potential profitability and asset quality issues in financial institutions due to the pandemic. BNM is also examining ways to boost the nation’s insurance sector, including de-tariffication for fire and motor insurance and promoting digitisation for improved customer interaction and operational efficiency.

Malaysia continues to assert its position as a global leader in Islamic Finance, demonstrating robust growth that is supported by comprehensive regulatory, legal and Shariah governance frameworks, diverse industry players and professional ancillary service providers as well as high quality talent. This is also acknowledged by the World Bank in its 2020 report on “Malaysia’s Domestic Bond Market: A Success Story by the World Bank’s Inclusive Growth and Sustainable Finance Hub in Malaysia”.
