INSTITUTIONAL INVESTORS COUNCIL MALAYSIA (IIC)
The Institutional Investors Council Malaysia (IIC) was formed on 3 July 2015 following the launch of the Malaysian Code for Institutional Investors (Code) on 27 June 2014. The IIC is envisaged to play an important role to represent the common interests of institutional investors in Malaysia. This industry-led initiative will be a platform to shape and influence a wider sphere of corporate governance culture through among others, the effective adoption of the Code. The establishment of the IIC is also in line with the recommendations of the Corporate Governance Blueprint 2011 launched by the SC in July 2011. The IIC was formally established under the Societies Act 1966 on 29 December 2017.
The objectives of the IIC are as follows:-
- to represent the interests of institutional investors on matters affecting them and to act as a conduit between policy makers, regulators and institutional investors in relation to broader corporate governance issues;
- to provide vision and strategic direction in relation to the development of the Institutional Investors Council and future enhancement to the Malaysian Code for Institutional Investors (Code);
- to advocate, provide guidance and monitor the adoption of the Code among institutional investors and encouraging institutional investors to become signatories of the Code; and
- to be the platform to influence good corporate governance culture by public listed companies as envisaged in the Corporate Governance Blueprint 2011.
Dato’ Wan Kamaruzaman bin Wan Ahmad has been elected as the first Chairman of the IIC.
