Investors will be able to transact stocks/ETFs online via a single multi-product investment account

iFAST Capital Sdn Bhd (iFAST Malaysia) has obtained approval-in-principle to carry out the regulated activity of dealing in securities such as stocks and ETFs from the Securities Commission Malaysia (SC). 

This represents a major milestone for iFAST Malaysia, as the last participating organisation (PO) was granted back in 2010. 

In line with SC’s recent announcement calling out the stockbroking industry to be more innovative, iFAST Malaysia has responded by being the first in Malaysia to provide a comprehensive wealth management platform which enables investors to invest in a variety of instruments locally and internationally. 

Aside from the existing products such as unit trusts, retail bonds, managed portfolios and insurances, investors can look forward to transacting stocks/ETFs online via a single multi-product investment account seamlessly on both iFAST Malaysia’s B2C and B2B iFAST platforms at competitive rates. 

“We will continue to strive to provide an innovative multi-asset platform where investors can invest, manage and consolidate their stocks, ETFs, unit trusts, bonds and managed portfolio all in one place,” said Dennis Tan, managing director of iFAST Malaysia.
