At Bursa Malaysia, gender equality has been a key sustainability priority, as we continue to reinforce our efforts to promote equality in our marketplace and the wider community. “Equality for Equity”, is a campaign initiated by Bursa Malaysia to highlight the importance of giving both men and women equal access to opportunities available in the equity market.
While we continue with efforts to reduce gender gaps at the workplace, it is also equally important to acknowledge the existence of the gender investing gap. In Malaysia, women investors only make up about 30% of retail investors in our stock market. This gender investing gap must be reduced to provide women with more opportunities to make sound investments and achieve long-term financial goals.
There is much work to be done. While we might not have the ability to close this gender investing gap immediately, we hope this small step can inspire and change the lives of many for a better tomorrow. Join us and be part of the #EqualityforEquity campaign today!
