PIDM releases Corporate Plan 2018 - 2020

Posted Date: January 29, 2018
Kuala Lumpur, 29 January 2018: Perbadanan Insurans Deposit Malaysia (PIDM) today released its 
‘Summary of the Corporate Plan 2018 – 2020’.
As an integral part of the Malaysian financial safety net system, PIDM is mandated to protect the 
interests  of  depositors  and  takaful  and  insurance  policy  owners  against  the  failure  of  any  PIDM 
member institution, and to contribute to or promote financial system stability.

The 3-year rolling plan sets out PIDM’s three (3) strategic priorities:
  •  Implement  initiatives  to  strengthen  readiness  towards  an  effective  resolution  regime  for Malaysia including resolution planning 
  •  Develop and prepare PIDM human capital for long term sustainability
  •  Strengthen engagement with key stakeholders, including the public and member institutions.
“Changes in our operating environment mean that we need a plan that ensures that PIDM  can keep 
pace and that we are always in a state of readiness to properly support financial system stability. Our 
strategic priorities support this aim,” said Rafiz Azuan Abdullah, Chief Executive Officer of PIDM.

“For  an effective resolution regime, a key objective  is to ensure that  all  member institutions can be 
resolved in an orderly manner, without systemic disruption to the financial system,” added Rafiz. 

“The collective engagement with member institutions on resolution planning  had  officially began in 
July  2017, together with Bank Negara Malaysia on recovery planning.  Going forward on resolution 
planning,  more  engagements  through  industry  consultations  can  be  expected.  In  the  immediate 
future, engagements  with the pilot institutions to  refine  PIDM’s resolution planning framework will take 
place,” Rafiz further added.

PIDM will continue to  engage with its stakeholders to  enhance public awareness about  PIDM’s role 
and its protection systems through financial education  and public engagement programmes as well 
as advertising campaigns.  

The financial plan for 2018 will support the execution of PIDM’s  strategic priorities. The Corporation 
has budgeted to receive income of RM575 million, and operating expenditures of RM120 million, with
a projected net surplus of RM455 million.

By the end of 2018, the surplus in the Deposit Insurance Funds (DIFs) will amount to RM2. 38 billion 
and the Takaful and Insurance Benefits Protection Funds (TIPFs) will total RM1.66 billion. The DIFs 
and  TIPFs  are  accumulated  reserves  to  cover  losses  that may  arise from  providing  protection to 
depositors and policy owners respectively.

The  Corporate  Plan  2018  –  2020  is  available  at  the  PIDM  website  (  in  three 
languages – Bahasa Malaysia, English and Chinese.
