Eyeing change in Malaysia

The structured products market in Malaysia got a boost last year when the country's regulators eased controls on the sale of unit trust funds and structured warrants. But are more relaxations needed? Pamela Tang reports

Malaysia's financial supervisors are gradually easing regulatory restrictions on structured products in an effort to boost interest in the country's structured products business. The Securities Commission (SC) made its first move last May, when it revised its guidelines to allow unit trust funds to invest in structured products, warrants and options. Then in October, the SC changed its advice on structured warrants to facilitate products based on foreign listed shares and indexes.
