The inside story of Banking & Finance in Malaysia


Malaysia’s moratorium on loan repayments as well as the ongoing pandemic have significantly impacted the workings of its banking and financial institutions. One area of impact has been hiring, with new headcounts being rigorously controlled at this time. While banks have not stopped hiring, they have been observed to have become faster and more deliberate in their selection processes.
