Bursa Malaysia Launches API Gateway

Bursa Malaysia Berhad has introduced a new API Gateway designed to streamline the Central Depository System (CDS) account management for brokers and participating organisations. This initiative aims to enhance efficiency in account activation and real-time trading for retail investors.

The API Gateway simplifies the onboarding process, significantly reducing the time required to open, update, or reactivate accounts, enabling investors to trade more quickly. It also aids participating organisations in digitising their processes, improving customer experience and promoting sustainability by reducing carbon footprints.

Currently operational, the API Gateway has already been adopted by five organisations: AmInvestment Bank Berhad, FSMOne, Hong Leong Investment Bank, Malacca Securities, and Moomoo Securities Malaysia. Additional information for interested parties is available on Bursa Malaysia’s website or through their depository operations team.

This development follows the launch of the BURSA Remisier Acquisition Hub (BURSA REACH), a platform connecting investors with dealer representatives.

Datuk Muhamad Umar Swift, CEO of Bursa Malaysia, stated, “This initiative is key in delivering on our commitment towards greater customer-centricity. We will continue to work closely with our participating organisations and introduce service innovations to attract more investors, bolstering the competitiveness of our market.”
