Stockbroking & Derivatives
JF Apex Securities Berhad (JFAS) is a 100% wholly owned subsidiary of Apex Equity Holdings Berhad (AEHB), with its primary business in the provision of share and stock trading services, underwriting and placement of securities, as well as nominees and share custodian services; serving institutional and retail clients, both locally and overseas. As of today, JFAS remains a financially strong institution, surviving the 1997/98 financial crisis that left most stock broking companies insolvent.
Originally a stock broking company as a member of the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange (KLSE) in 1979 under the name of Lim and Hszieh Sendirian, the company turned private on 15 March 1985, becoming Apex Securities Sdn Bhd. On 2 May 1991, Apex Securities was acquired by AEHB as part of its restructuring process and KLSE listing.
Due to the Economic Boom is Asia that occurred between the 1980s to mid-1990s, Malaysia became known as a “Tiger Economy,” causing an influx of global equity investments. It was during this period that JP Morgan Hong Kong (formally known as Jarding Fleming Hong Kong) acquired a 30% share, changing Apex Securities Sdn Bhd to JF Apex Securities Sdn Bhd on 5 March 1996. On 12 August 1997, after a successful KLSE listing, JF Apex Securities was eventually renamed JFAS. However, on 13 December 2007, JP Morgan Hong Kong ceased its shareholding rights, thereby returning full ownership to AEHB.
In October 2000, JFAS successfully obtained the licensing rights of Halim Securities, expanding business operations and the transfer of 27 remisiers, thus the commencement of its Petaling Jaya (PJ) Branch.
Presently, JFAS is headquartered in Kajang, with branches in Petaling Jaya, Puchong, Penang, and Johor Bahru.
