Publication: Financial Sector Assessment Program : Malaysia - Assessment of Observance of the CPSS-IOSCO Principles for Financial Market Infrastructures
International Monetary Fund
The present document is the assessment of systemically important financial market infrastructures in Malaysia based on the Committee for Payment and Settlement Systems (CPSS) and International Organization of Securities Commission (IOSCO) Principles for Financial Market Infrastructures (PFMIs). The assessment was conducted in the context of field missions of the Financial Sector Assessment Program (FSAP) to Malaysia in July 2012. The information used in the assessment included all relevant laws, rules and procedures governing the systems, material available on these FMIs in the public domain and from the central bank and the securities commission. The Capital Market and Services Act 2007 (CMSA) provides the overall framework for operation of various entities in the security markets like stock exchange, clearing houses and trade repositories. The Securities Industry (Central Depositories) Act 1991 (SICDA) provides the overall regulatory framework for depositories and immobilization of securities in approved depositories. The CMSA requires the licensed exchanges and clearing houses to prioritize public interest, safety and efficiency aspects over their commercial objective and also establish rules and procedures and in particular in relation to handling of participant defaults.
