Emerging Technology Companies from Malaysia Battling with Regional Neighbors to Reach Speed Trading Community

HFT Leaders Forum 2011Emerging technology companies from Kuala Lumpur are set to do battle with regional neighbors to serve the high-frequency trading community through Golden Networking’s High-Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2011, the most effective way to raise their business profile in the financial sphere. High-Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2011 will reach out to global audiences in Hong Kong, September, 19-21, Chicago, October 3-5, Sao Paulo, October 24-26, and Singapore, November 13-15, and provide the most up-to-date overview of cutting-edge developments and insights to build a competitive advantage in high-frequency trading. As reported by Dow Jones, Bursa Malaysia’s Chief Executive Tajuddin Atan had said the exchange had increased the amount of proprietary trading as it looks to boost liquidity on a daily basis. Bursa Malaysia, the Malaysian Stock Exchange, isn't currently involved with high-frequency trading firms. Still, the exchange sees an opportunity there, especially as high-frequency traders are increasingly looking abroad as the U.S. gets more competitive and regulated. "We have approved and increased the number of proprietary traders by threefold over the last month," Atan said in an interview. "It's a start. Once we have experience in that particular area, I think we might consider high-frequency trading." In regards to the increased scrutiny that has come from regulators as high-frequency trading has grown, Atan said, "We are observing it from a distance." Malaysia’s rapid growth over the past 25 years has been financed and sustained by high domestic savings and by large inflows of FDI, attracted by Malaysia’s well-developed infrastructure, capable administration and well educated workforce. A large part of FDI inflows is channeled into manufacturing, but a growing share is going into the services sector. Malaysia has to do battle with its regional neighbors, most notably China, in vying for foreign investment. Malaysia is hoping to attract investment in higher knowledge content industries, in line with its ambition to become a knowledge-based economy, and in higher value added industries.
