About The Speaker [Datin Aida Jaslina Jalaludin]


Datin Aida Jaslina Jalaludin
Head of Research, ICMR



Datin Aida Jaslina Jalaludin is the head of research development at ICMR, responsible for the design and development of its research programmes with the aim of promoting intellectual discourse between stakeholders to ultimately shape the Malaysian capital market. With over 20 years of experience in economic policy making, capital market policies, business planning and process re-engineering, she was instrumental in the formation of ICMR, having worked on its conceptualisation as well as led the Project Management office to spearhead ICMR’s establishment.

Prior to this she headed the management of the Capital Market Development Fund (CMDF), an independent statutory fund established to promote the development of the Malaysian capital market – a stint which gave her greater insights into the needs of the industry and rendered her better equipped for her role in ICMR.

Before CMDF, during her tenure in the Strategy and Research Department of the Securities Commission (SC), she was responsible for research works to facilitate economic and capital market policy making as well as managed the SC’s strategic business planning process. Amongst others, her expertise was employed in the development of national economic plans and she played a key role in drafting the Capital Market Masterplan 2 together with several blueprints across the capital market.

Previous work experiences include managing business plans and treasury operations at the Hong Leong Group as well as process re-engineering and business turnarounds for the various subsidiaries of PETRONAS, providing her with a strong understanding of company structure and operations.

She holds a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Finance from the London School of Economics and Political Science, UK.
