[Bursa Malaysia] New trading incentives effective March 2018

Great news for all retail investors!!! You can now have more reasons to expand your investment portfolio and trade more with the new trading incentives that will take effect on 1 March 2018.

These measures were announced on 6 February 2018 by Prime Minister at the World Capital Markets Symposium 2018, hosted by the Securities Commission Malaysia.

What are the incentives???
  1. Stamp duty waiver for 3 years
    * Stamp duty on shares of mid and small cap companies will be waived effective 1st March 2018 until 28th February 2021.
    * Exemption will be applicable to listed companies with a market capitalization ranging between RM200 million and RM2 billion as at 31 December 2017 for eligibility in 2018.
    * For eligibility in 2019 onwards, the companies will be based on their market capitalization as at 31 December 2018.
    * The list of companies will be static until the annual review.

  2. Fee waiver on trading and clearing fees for six months
    * Eligible to first time individual investors who open a CDS account from 1st March 2018 to 31st August 2018
    * No other CDS account has been opened before (including closed account). Don't try to cheat ya :)
