  1. Attn:

    Hello. My name is El Sen and I work for Securities Commission Malaysia. Hope this email finds you well.

    We saw that the word “license” was used in reference to the 6 P2P financing platform operators announced earlier today. This is incorrect as no licenses are being issued. We would like to respectfully to ask for you to change this to either “registered” or “recognised” P2P operators instead.

    You can refer to our media release from earlier:

    Also, noticed your photo caption saying that our Chairman was with the prime minister. It was actually the Second Finance Minister Johari Abdul Ghani.

    Hope you understand our position and thank you very much in advance.

    Teoh El Sen
