Certified Practising Accountants (CPA) Australia and the Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA) have teamed up to launch a financial literacy initiative for investors. This initiative comes in the form of two free online guides to help Malaysian investors better understand annual reports.
The guides will help investors have a better grasp of topics like auditing, assurance and half-yearly reviews of listed companies. They were introduced to help existing as well as prospective investors and users of financial statements to make more informed investment decisions.
Although the guides have been available to members of CPA Australia for many years, they have been repurposed to suit Malaysian retail investors. The online guides, with input from the MIA, now serve as a useful tool for investors who invest in Malaysian listed companies. They are available in PDF format on CPA Australia’s website.
