How SIDC is Addressing Malaysia’s Sustainable and Responsible Investment Skills Gap

As Malaysia advances its sustainability goals, focusing on integrating environmental, social, and economic considerations, sustainable investments have become increasingly important. The country's progress in sustainable and responsible investment (SRI) is evident, with 68 SRI funds totaling RM7.7 billion by the end of 2023, according to the Securities Commission Malaysia's Annual Report, supported by strong policy frameworks and growing investor interest.

However, to meet the rising standards and demands of SRI, the industry needs to enhance its capacity. In this episode, we speak with Salleh Hassan, Director of Professional Standards and Qualifications at the Securities Industry Development Corporation (SIDC), to discuss the trends, challenges, and initiatives in Malaysia's capital market related to sustainable and responsible investment. Salleh shares insights on SIDC’s efforts to address capacity-building gaps and introduce its new certification programme aimed at equipping industry professionals for the future.
