Capital Market Director Programme (CMDP):
Licensed intermediary institutions play an important systemic role in the capital market ecosystem. 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 (CMD) is an exclusive platform for directors and other strategic personalities of licensed intermediary institutions to equip themselves with new and relevant knowledge, skills and abilities (basic to intermediate level). The programme is also designed to allow them to explore and deliberate on pertinent issues affecting the industry from multi-stakeholders’ perspectives.
The specific objectives of the programme are as follows:
- Equip members of the board with knowledge and skills to provide leadership and oversight in the running of licensed intermediary institutions;
- Assist directors of licensed intermediary institutions in becoming an effective member of the board through the latest developments in regulations and challenges, business and governance in the capital market; and
- Promote a thorough understanding of the role of the Securities Commission in regulating a dynamic and competitive capital market.
This programme will also “strengthen intermediation standards and capabilities” as espoused by the Capital Market Masterplan 2 (CMP2).
