Maybank shares are widely held, with institutional shareholders dominating the ownership structure and foreign shareholders owning more than 20% of Maybank shares.
Although the top three shareholders of Maybank account for more than half of the total paid-up share capital, Maybank is not subject to any biased influence from these shareholders, who do not hold management positions within the organisation. This ensures a high level of corporate governance and permits the Group to focus on continuously building value for all its shareholders.
The existing share structure consists entirely of Ordinary Shares. There are no different classes of ordinary shares.
