“Malaysia introduced the derivatives market in the early 1980s, and some of the new exchanges came on board in the 1990s as well. We were ahead of many other countries. “The Malaysian Futures Broking Association and market players are all keen to see more growth in this area. We are going to take a much more accelerated effort and see what can be done working with Bursa Derivatives. There are a lot of products out there but we need to see what has been preventing them from achieving scale and growth,” said Ranjit, a financial economist, accountant, and also a fellow of CPA Australia.
