When it comes to financial literacy about investing, Malaysians are unfortunately lagging behind. A recent survey by Hong Leong bank showed that as much as 79% of Malaysians do not have a proper financial plan, and only about 33% have some kind of investment. 

That's why financial literacy is increasingly important. A nation that cannot generate enough wealth for itself, especially for emergencies and retirement, is one that will burden the economy further.

Established in Palo Alto, California, within the Silicon Valley, Moomoo operates globally, catering to investors in countries including the US, Singapore, Australia, Japan, Canada, and Malaysia

Whilst not the only online investment app in Malaysia, Moomoo provides yet another user-friendly and exciting platform on which locals can trade and grow their personal net worth. 

Moomoo Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. ("Moomoo MY") celebrated its official opening in Kuala Lumpur today, with notable figures such as Datuk Muhamad Umar Swift, CEO of Bursa Malaysia; Robin Xu, Senior Partner, Senior Vice President, and Head of Southeast Asia and Oceania at Futu Holdings Limited; Ivan Mok, CEO of Moomoo Malaysia; and Dennis Jee, COO of Moomoo Malaysia, in attendance, along with other key executives.

Moomoo Malaysia, under the company name Futu Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. has achieved the distinction of being one of the initial global digital brokerage firms to receive the Capital Market Services License from the Securities Commission Malaysia ("SC").

This license authorizes Moomoo MY to provide trading and clearing services for both securities and derivatives. 

During the launch, Robin Xu, Senior Partner and Senior Vice President of Southeast Asia and Oceania at Futu Holdings Limited shared that with Malaysia relatively young population, there is abundant opportunities to grow a fintech enterprise. This is because younger investors are very self-directed. Additionally, the country has a supportive regulatory framework and a clear demand for such technology.

Malaysia is therefore the second country where Moomoo has expanded their operations to, after Singapore.
