PETALING JAYA: Bursa Malaysia has kicked off its fund-raising campaign, the inaugural Bursa Bull Charge, to promote financial literacy and entrepreneurship in the community.

The stock exchange said in a statement the Bursa Bull Charge capital market charity run was a way for it to raise awareness and a reminder to give back and invest in local communities.

“Bursa Bull Charge is a physical demonstration of the inclusiveness of the marketplace that we have been working hard to build, and together, reach out to the community and help build for the future,” said Bursa Malaysia chief executive officer Datuk Tajuddin Atan in a statement.

The year began with the Bull Hunt investment awareness event, followed by the launch of the eCommunity – the Bursa Marketplace – in April, and subsequently, the first-of-its-kind Fantasy FTBL.TRADR Challenge.

“These efforts have set the tone and motion for members of the capital marketplace to team up and collaborate towards building financial literacy among Malaysians, especially young executives,” Tajuddin said.

The key sponsors of the Bursa Bull Charge are Maybank Investment Bank, the Mammoth Bull Sponsor; SapuraKencana Petroleum Bhd and YTL Corp Bhd, the Jumbo Bull Sponsors; and IJM Corp Bhd, the Husky Bull Sponsor.

The Bursa Bull Charge will take place on Oct 21.

“We recognise the important role of young executives as future leaders and entrepreneurs. We believe that by involving them in the Bursa Bull Charge and bringing everyone together to run alongside CEOs and captains of industry, we hope to inspire the young executives to see and understand the possibilities and opportunities available in the marketplace, be it a career or in building wealth,” said Tajuddin.

The Bursa Bull Charge will see a large congregation of the capital market industry, represented by government agencies, regulators, brokers, public-listed companies, traders, remisiers, trading partners, the media and a special category for young executives, coming together to raise funds towards supporting the growth of local entrepreneurship in the communities.

“This is a very good start to the first and inaugural capital market run, and we are proud to stand together with Bursa Malaysia and all other members of the capital market to help our community be better off.

“We constantly remind ourselves of the importance to go beyond our day-to-day and ensure that everyone in our community has an equal opportunity to grow and build their future,” said Maybank group president and chief executive officer Datuk Abdul Farid Alias.
