"As essential service providers under the services sector, capital market participants (CMPs) can continue to undertake and provide capital market activities and services.
"These entities include the approved exchanges, licensed entities (CMSL holders), registered persons, Audit Oversight Board registered auditors, self-regulatory organisations, recognised market operators (RMOs) and other capital market related entities," it said in a statement issued today.
This follows on from the statement yesterday by the Minister of Finance that the capital market remains open during this period as it supports the resilience and recovery of the Malaysian economy.
The SC added that it is authorised to issue verification letter for capital market participants to facilitate the movement of their employees during the MCO period.
"Capital market entities are reminded to be vigilant and take all necessary measures to minimise the risk of the spread of COVID-19 at their workplace," it said.
For more information or to apply for the verification letter, capital market participants can email their queries or requests to ApprovalLettersCOVID19@seccom.com.my.
