Good turnout for SC's InvestSmart Fest 2017

When contacted, Advancecon group chief executive officer Datuk Phum Ang Kia said it was unable to give a new date for the prospectus launch at this juncture, pending queries from the SC.

KUALA LUMPUR: Securities Commission Malaysia's (SC) InvestSmart Fest 2017, which aims to enhance financial and investment literacy, attracted nearly 20,000 visitors. 

The event, which ran from Oct 13 to 15, 2017, ended with the inaugural ScamBuster run which drew the participation of 3,000 people and raised RM100,000 for the National Kidney Foundation.

“Malaysians need to equip themselves with the necessary skills and knowledge to effectively manage their financial resources and grow their wealth. 

"SC’s InvestSmart initiatives are designed to empower individuals to make informed financial and investment decisions. After all, an educated investor is a protected investor," said SC chairman Tan Sri Ranjit Ajit Singh.

The three-day event showcased over 65 exhibitors including capital market institutions, associations, industry players and relevant government
agencies under one roof. 

Visitors also benefitted from 450 free financial planning sessions held by 65 financial planners licensed by the SC and a variety of talks and seminars on investments, market outlook and digitisation. 

At the ScamBuster Run, the SC also announced the appointment of Tengku Datin Paduka Setia Zatashah Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah as the ambassador of InvestSmart.
