Licensed intermediary institutions play an important systemic role in the capital market eco-system. The growth or decline of the capital market is influenced by, among others, the success and failure of these institutions. Hence, the quality of leadership at these institutions is paramount. Kiel et al (2012) suggest four levels of competence required of a board. They are as follows:

  • Industry: Experience in and knowledge of the industry in which the organisation operates

  • Technical: Technical/professional skills and specialist knowledge to assist with ongoing aspects of the board’s role

  • Governance: The essential governance knowledge and understanding all directors should possess or develop if they are to be effective board members

  • Behavioural: The attributes and competencies enabling individual board members to use their knowledge and skills to function well as team members and to interact with key stakeholders


The Capital Market Director Programme (CMDP) is an exclusive platform for directors of licensed intermediaries to be equipped with the relevant knowledge, skills and abilities (basic to intermediate level) to meet the expected competencies required of a board. A modular programme with four modules encompassing lectures, case studies and interactive discussions, it is designed to allow directors and other participants to explore and deliberate on pertinent issues affecting the industry from multi-stakeholders perspectives.
