Establishment of Database of Retirees with Specialist Background in the Financial Sector

Consultations have been held with BNM to initiate an exercise to create a database of industry retirees with specialist background in the financial sector as a resource centre to address the talent pool issues faced by the financial services in Malaysia. All industry associations including PIAM have been requested to initially set up their own database which will be consolidated later. A uniform template for collating information of these retired industry experts will be formulated to ease future consolidation into an overall financial services sector database.
