KUALA LUMPUR (March 14): The Malaysian capital market remained resilient, despite the challenges and volatilities in global markets, said Securities Commission (SC).

“Uncertainties heightened across global markets throughout 2018 with escalating trade tensions, geopolitical issues and normalisation of monetary policies in developed economies and these have affected risk sentiments, amid increased volatility and liquidity tightening in global financial markets.

“These developments underscore the need for the SC to continuously monitor and assess systemic risk concerns which include early detection of emerging risk trends and vulnerabilities that could contribute to the build-up of systemic risks in the capital market,” it said in SC Annual Report 2018, released today. - Bernama
