The annual fair encourages new and the existing investors to gain more insights into the stock market and invest confidently with the exchange

BURSA Malaysia Bhd’s second annual Virtual Marketplace Fair returns tomorrow with the aim of encouraging new and existing investing community to gain more insights into the stock market and invest confidently with the exchange.

The fair will focus on four community segments — beginners, seasoned investors, female investors and millennials — emphasising both conventional and Shariah-compliant investing in the equity as well as the derivatives markets.

It will also give insights into how investing in equities is great for building wealth, trading in a volatile market, non-fungible token versus stocks and trading palm oil futures such as Crude Palm Oil Futures Contract and East Malaysia Crude Palm Oil Futures.

“In addition, the event also has a great line-up of senior representatives from Main Market companies such as IHH Healthcare Bhd, Farm Fresh Bhd, DiGi.Com Bhd, Sime Darby Property Bhd, GHL Systems Bhd and Scicom (MSC) Bhd who will be sharing their corporate and growth plans,” Bursa Malaysia said in a recent statement.

During the event, there will be a virtual exhibition by 15 exhibitors from participating organisations and regulatory bodies, showcasing products and services. 

The public will also have access to Bursa Academy, Bursa Marketplace and Bursa Anywhere to learn more about Bursa Malaysia’s offerings. In addition, there will be various webinars on topics related to the equity market (conventional and Shariah), as well as the derivatives market.

This event is free and open to all members of the public, with giveaway prizes for participants. — TMR
