THE Securities Industry Development Centre (SIDC) will organise a four-day workshop on the Malaysian equities market from Jan 8 to 11 at the Securities Commission (SC) in Kuala Lumpur.
The workshop is part of the SIDC capital market workshop series focusing on the fundamental elements of the local equity market, including its regulations and products.
It is designed for new entrants to the industry, candidates preparing for Modules 6 & 7 licensing examinations as well as the general public and investors.
Speakers from the SC, KLSE and industry will cover among others, an introduction to the equities market regulatory structure (including securities laws, takeovers and its legal framework as well as capital raising on the primary market), trading on the secondary market and KLSE business rule (including the relationship between a stockbroking company and its clients, clearing and delivery and settlement system as well as corporate actions.)
In addition, the workshop will also discuss the basics of financial statement analysis and theories of asset valuation aimed at helping participants understand the methods of analysing securities for investment.
Day four of the workshop is optional. It is a tutorial session to assist candidates preparing for Modules 6 & 7 licensing examinations but will also benefit other participants who wish to gain a general understanding of the topics, which include stock market and securities laws, financial statement analysis and asset valuation as well as examination techniques.
Registration fee is RM500 for the full-day workshop. Participants may also opt to attend only the first three days at RM400 or the tutorial session alone at RM100.
