An Introduction and Regulatory Overview on Digital Assets and the Initial Exchange Offering (IEO) Framework in Malaysia
Presenter : Ms. Yau Khai Ling
Posted in : Company and Corporate Law
CPD Activity (1.0 credit)
About the Course
The recent registration of two Initial Exchange Offering (“IEO”) platform operators in Malaysia by the Securities Commission Malaysia in March 2022 has sparked much interest amongst the general public, drawing attention once again to the rapidly expanding areas of digital assets and finance technology (“fintech”) within Malaysia.
The global phenomena of digital assets and fintech have brought about a sea change, such as creating alternative fundraising methods, inspiring new business models, and providing digital solutions to age-old institutions and infrastructures. Malaysia is no stranger to this digital revolution, as government authorities step in to accommodate and regulate the fast-growing space of digital assets and fintech, including within the capital markets or fundraising sector as businesses seek alternative ways to raise funds.
In this session, the speaker will discuss the development of digital assets and its legal framework in Malaysia, IEO as an alternative form of fundraising through the offering of digital tokens, and how IEO compares with the existing fintech fundraising frameworks such as equity-crowdfunding and peer-to-peer financing.
