Welcome to the International Women’s Day Bursa Malaysia website. Gender equality has been a key sustainability priority in Bursa Malaysia as we continue to reinforce our efforts to promote equality in our marketplace and the wider community. “Equality for Equity”, is a campaign designed by Bursa Malaysia to highlight the importance of giving both men and women equal access to opportunities available in the equity market.
Data shows that while more women investors have entered the market, women participation still lags behind their men counterparts. In 2021, women made up only 30% of individual investors in our stock market despite global findings that women tend to be better investors than men. We encourage women to participate in the stock market to grow their wealth and reduce this gender investing gap. Join us to explore the many educational articles, videos, tools and quizzes that we have in place to enhance your financial literacy and knowledge. Learn with us and take the first step into the world of investment.
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 support #equalityforequity today!
