Malaysia, Cambodia Regulators Ink MOU for Capital Markets Cooperation


The Securities Commission Malaysia (SC) has inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Securities and Exchange Regulator of Cambodia (SERC) for greater regulatory, enforcement, and supervisory cooperation.

The regulators said in a joint statement that the MOU was signed due to the “growing globalisation and cross-border activities of regulated entities/persons in both countries”.

The MOU covers cross-border enforcement assistance, regulation, and supervision of capital market intermediaries, and the facilitation of licensing information.

It also addresses capacity building and human capital development, as well as the exchange of regulatory expertise and technical knowledge to facilitate and encourage the development of the respective capital markets.
