22 November 2018 @ Connexion Conference & Event Centre @ Nexus, Bangsar South City, Kuala Lumpur
Public practitioners are constantly being urged to add value to their offerings by diversifying services. Insolvency holds exciting potentials for service diversification and advisory, especially given the volatile economic climate of risky business at home and abroad as well as the need to manage economic failures.
Specially for insolvency specialists, the Malaysia Insolvency Conference 2018 discusses the economic outlook post-Budget as well as new rules and regulations impacting insolvency, including a new corporate rescue mechanism under the Companies Act 2016. Also learn more about asset tracing, forensic methods and litigation funding that support an effective insolvency process. The Conference ends with a Legal Colloquium: Case Study, where legal experts will address the legal issues and challenges of the corporate rescue process and the legal perspectives of selected insolvency cases.
The Malaysia Insolvency Conference is jointly organised by MIA, Malaysian Institute of Certified Public Accountants (MICPA) and Insolvency Practitioners Association of Malaysia (iPAM).

Specially designed to update accountancy educators on the latest developments, this Convention brings together academicians and employers to bridge the talent gap.
