Private Retirement Schemes (PRS) is a voluntary long-term savings and investment scheme designed to help you save more for your retirement. PRS seek to enhance choices available for all Malaysians whether employed or self-employed to supplement their retirement savings under a well-structured and regulated environment. Each PRS offers a choice of retirement funds from which individuals may choose to invest in based on their own retirement needs, goals and risk appetite. The fund options under PRS are intended to enhance long-term returns for members within a regulated framework.
A high income nation must have a sound and sustainable social security framework to ensure adequate retirement savings. The PRS is an integral feature of the private pension industry as part of the Economic Transformation Programme under Entry Point Project 6 (EPP 6), with the objective of improving living standards for Malaysians at retirement through additional savings. With the regulatory framework developed by the Securities Commission Malaysia, PRS forms the 3rd pillar of Malaysia’s multi pillar pension framework.
