Conference

The MFA is proud to be the pioneer in organizing a national-level conference that specializes in finance. Since its inaugural workshop in 1999, the meeting of finance academicians and practitioners has developed to become an annual symposium and today, owing to the overwhelming response, the meeting is now known as an annual conference. The conference is hosted by local institutions of higher learning, both public and private, on rotational basis.
The conference is a great platform for academicians and practitioners to discuss and exchange ideas pertaining to issues related to finance. It also provides an avenue for researchers to share their findings on financial issues relevant to Malaysia. Selected papers from the conference are published in the Capital Market Review which is an official publication of Bursa Malaysia and Research Institute of Investment Analysts Malaysia (RIIAM).
