๐Ÿ…ต๐Ÿ…ธ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†‚๐Ÿ†ƒ E-Wallet to be Approved by SC to Offer Investment Products ๐Ÿค‘

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 โ€œfinancially inclusive investment product in the first quarter of the year, allowing our users to access basic investment services for as low as RM10โ€. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ



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 โ€˜n Go eWallet platform, without having to be directed to third-party applications.


This proposition is made possible through TNGโ€™s collaboration with Principal Asset Management (Principal), a Malaysian fund management company. This partnership combines platform development, technology and data expertise of Touch โ€˜n Go eWallet with Principalโ€™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."

said Effendy Shahul Hamid, Group Chief Executive Officer, TNG Group.

CEO, TNG Group

โ€œWe feel that this offering will add significant value to our large payments and transportation user base and continue our evolution into financial services. We aim to make this an extremely seamless and frictionless offer to Touch โ€˜n Go eWallet users. With the approvals behind us, we will now focus on ensuring the user-experience is best-in-class as we move towards a launch,โ€
