Financial Disintermediation in the 1990s : Implications on Monetary Policy in Malaysia

  • Tan, Anthony C.K.
  • Goh, Kim-Leng

The increased financial disintermediation that characterizes the Malaysia's financial system since the early 1990s has contributed towards changes in the dynamics of monetary transmission mechanism. Using quarterly data from 1980: 1 to 2005: 4, we found a greater effectiveness of monetary policy during the pre-1990:3 period, but the post-1990:3 period poses much difficulty for the conduct of monetary policy. Innovations in the financial market appeared to have led to lower output variability. Further, when the real interest rate is made a function of financial disintermediation, the real interest rate appeared to have lost its significance in influencing real variables in the post-1990: 3 period. This study did not, however, find evidence in support of the significance of the real interest rate in affecting real variables through the direct financing channel via the capital market.
