    CPE Points
    This intensive programme combines the application of fundamental analysis, technical analysis and behavioural finance to current market positioning and themes. The objective is to quantify the current market price action to identify trends, value, trading strategies, portfolio allocation and then look at the impact these have on the Malaysian capital markets.

    The disconnect between equity market pricing backed by record leverage, and European and Japanese government bonds which currently yield negative interest rates at the front of the curve will be examined. Is this greed versus fear or simply investors chasing assets? We will also discuss the current weakness of the dollar, U.S. interest rate increases, the rise of the commodity sector, China growth and the “success” of Abenomics in Japan.

    The programme will highlight relative value in the respective markets, current risks, alternative assets, and various trading strategies and products, and the impact these will have on the Malaysian capital markets. It will also consider the rapidly developing FinTech market and its impact.

  • Participant Profile
    • Investment management and trading – this programme is suited to financial market risk takers. It gives a unique look at current market themes and trends. It blends fundamental information with technical charts and price correlations in the search of value trading strategies. 
    • Researchers also benefit from looking at the market from a different perspective. Not every price move is based on fundamental reason. Technical charts, correlations and market positioning add a different perspective.
    • Corporate, commercial, private banking and relationship managers – the programme is of great importance to sales teams and private bankers who gain a greater insight into the current market trends, trading strategies, portfolio allocation and alternative investments to discuss and market with current and potential clients
    • Anyone involved in client advisory work

    This programme will benefit all areas of the business structure with a focus on self-development, inter-personal skills, team building, expectations, responsibility and culture.
