About CIMB

CIMB was launched by (then Prime Minister) Tun Abdul Razak in 1974 as Pertanian Sanwa Multinational Bank. In 1986, it was acquired by Bank of Commerce and renamed Commerce International Merchant Bankers Berhad. CIMB is one of the preferred banks by millions of Malaysians as they offer a wide range of financial services, from insurance/ takaful to financing and investments.

What is share trading?

Share trading is buying and selling shares, which can be done quickly for a profit. In contrast to regular investors who use long-term strategies to invest their money into companies’ shares, traders usually have more volatile investment patterns because they focus on the price fluctuations that occur daily or recently rather than just looking at how profitable it will potentially become over time.
