DATUK Mohd Azlan Hashim has been re-appointed executive chairman of the KLSE committee, and Datuk Mohaiyani Shamsuddin deputy chairman. 

Their appointments, for one year, were effective yesterday, the KLSE said in a statement. 

Other committee members are Tan Kim Leong, Abdul Kadir Md Kassim, Abdul Jabbar Majid, Datin Mariam Yusof, Abdul Rauf Ramli, Yusli Mohamed Yusof and Peter Leong Tuck Leng.  

Azlan said the exchange would continue to focus on its twin roles as a frontline regulator and as a market operator. 

“The KLSE will continue to balance commercial objectives of the exchange with public interest responsibilities,” he added. 

Azlan said enhancements in infrastructure, both physical and regulatory, would form part of the exchange's effort to further promote the development of the capital market and the securities industry. 

“We will continue to assist the national economy through effectively promoting the mobilisation of savings and investments, while facilitating public companies in the raising of capital,” he said. 

Azlan said the demutualisation of the KLSE was a major step forward for the Malaysian capital market in achieving the objectives of the Capital Market Masterplan for a more resilient, competitive, attractive and efficient securities industry. 

“Demutualisation is a key achievement in the ongoing progress and development of the KLSE for the year ahead,” he said.
