Bursa Malaysia’s average daily trading value (ADV) has fallen to a decade low of only RM1.31bil for the month of July.

EIGHT months into 2022, it has been a bad year for the capital markets. Equities performed poorly and many funds have underperformed in large part due to the global sell-off resulting from monetary tightening policies, high inflation and geopolitical issues.

Take popular app-based brokerage Robinhood Markets Inc, for instance. It is now shedding 23% of its workforce as it has lost seven million retail investor users (almost one third of total users) in the span of one year.
