Foreword
The Financial Sector Talent Enrichment Program is an industry-driven post graduate initiative of the financial services industry. Deriving from an idea promulgated by the Governor of Bank Negara Malaysia, Tan Sri Dato‟ Seri Dr Zeti Akhtar Aziz, FSTEP was established in September 2007 to address the shortage of skilled talents in the financial services sector. The program aims to produce highly trained young professionals for the financial services industry. Banking in Malaysia is a fast-changing and dynamic industry with new developments taking place all the time. The development the Malaysian domestic economy would also need to change to a more productive structure that is more innovation-driven and knowledge intensive. The role of the financial sector therefore will also evolve from being an enabler of growth to becoming an important catalyst and driver of economic growth and development. This will create increased demand for highly trained and competent workforce to serve the financial industry. FSTEP therefore was established as part of the overall talent development initiatives to contribute to the process of building and expanding a sustainable pool of talent to best serve the present and future needs of the industry. FSTEP occupies a unique niche within the financial services industry, providing a training programme to equip participants with the essential knowledge and skills as well as to nurture them to become well-rounded individuals to support the growth of the industry. Through active collaboration of industry players, training modules were designed to blend technical knowledge and personal development insight, which enables participants to optimise their learning through a mix of classroom training based on case studies, complemented by hands-on exposure through on-the-job training. In writing this handbook, the author adopted an approach to comply with the syllabus of the financial services stream, as outlined by FSTEP. As such, the handbook will serve to augment the teaching and learning process to bring about maximum impact on the participants of FSTEP. FSTEP participants should review the handbook material prior to every class to expedite and maximize their understanding of the subject. We wish to register our appreciation to IBBM, the author, the reviewer and many others for the selfless contribution to this handbook and for their unwavering advice in steering the handbook to successful completion.
