SIDREC had a busy weekend, as an InvestSmart partner at the Securities Commission Malaysia’s InvestSmart Fest 2015.
The InvestSmart Fest was held at the Mid Valley Exhibition Centre, Kuala Lumpur from Friday, Oct 9 to Sunday, Oct 11.
Thousands visited the weekend event and had the opportunity to learn about the various investment products and services in the market as well as to pick up a tip or two on selecting good investment-grade stock. Themed ‘Start investing in your future now’, the event was a crowd-puller as it featured popular industry experts who shared insights on winning investment approaches and simple rules to grow one’s wealth. Also there, were Bursa Marketplace ‘Celebrity Traders’, JJ and Atilia, who shared their own trading experience and lessons learnt.
There were educational games and contests throughout the 3-day roadshow that lent a carnival like atmosphere to the fair. Everyone in the family found it a lot of fun, besides taking the chance to learn about investing. Experienced fund managers and brokers were available to guide investors and the public about meeting long-term financial goals with different capital market products that were available. Also at hand were Bursa Malaysia, FIMM, SIDREC, PPA, and SIDC amongst others, to provide guidance and help on the safeguards and assistance available to investors as part of the investor protection framework in the capital market.
SIDREC’s team was kept busy with both the public and industry professionals, who were curious about our role and how we are able to help parties, move positively towards a resolution when they are in a dispute. Those who came, walked away informed about the whole dispute resolution process and were happy to discover a cost-free avenue they could now turn to for help, if needed. Many were game to pose for a snapshot at our booth with a team-member or brandishing the odd prop, as a keepsake.
If you weren’t able to make it, you missed quite a bit! No worries – look out for the next InvestSmart event, or SIDREC roadshow, coming your way soon.
Thank you to all those who took time to stop by for a visit and a conversation!
