New Year Message
From Prasad Padmanaban
Chief Executive, AICB

Happy New Year, and warm greetings as we begin 2019!

The year 2018 was quite a busy year for all of us, with many developments and significant milestones achieved towards professionalising the Malaysian banking industry. I am pleased to share that we achieved a sizeable expansion of our AICB membership to over 22,000 members, as well as a substantial increase in our membership retention rates through several initiatives including the implementation of the joint industry declaration, our continuing professional development (CPD) activities and thought leadership initiatives. In 2019 we remain committed to raising the bar for professional standards and to provide bankers with the competency, recognition, support and opportunities for their personal and professional growth. I also look forward to work closely together with our committed network of members and stakeholders towards further bringing the banking profession to greater heights.

Once again, I would like to thank our valued members, stakeholders and employees for being part of AICB’s journey and wish all of you a wonderful and rewarding year.

Best wishes
