Touch N Go, has emerged as the first e-wallet to be granted a conditional approval to operate as a Recognized Market Operator (RMO) by the Securities Commission of Malaysia (SC).
TNG said that it aims to launch its “financially inclusive investment product in the first quarter of the year, allowing our users to access basic investment services for as low as RM10”. 😱
The conditional approval by the SC will enable the company to directly distribute capital market products, including money market unit trust funds, through the Touch ‘n Go eWallet platform, without having to be directed to third-party applications.
This proposition is made possible through TNG’s collaboration with Principal Asset Management (Principal), a Malaysian fund management company. This partnership combines platform development, technology and data expertise of Touch ‘n Go eWallet with Principal’s expertise in investment strategy and fund management.
"This truly is a landmark development and an industry first. Our teams have been working tirelessly together with regulators and partners to get to this stage. The RMO status will allow us to bring a string of innovative digital offerings to our users."
