Credit Guarantee Corporation Malaysia Berhad (CGC) is a limited company incorporated under the Companies Act 1965 on July 5, 1972. Its main objective is to play a developmental role in supporting the Malaysia’s economic development agenda by assisting marginal but potentially viable small and medium scale enterprises (SMEs), particularly enterprises without collateral or with inadequate collateral and track record to obtain financing from the financial institutions. CGC facilitates SMEs access to financing through its guarantee schemes.
In its formative years, CGC assisted small enterprises particularly in agricultural, commercial and industrial sectors. As the Malaysian economy expanded and diversified over the years, the demand for CGC guarantee services grew in tandem. This led CGC to expand its range of products and services to cater for larger credit facilities required by the medium-sized SMEs.
Today, CGC supports SMEs through provision of loan guarantee and financing facilities, advisory services for financial and business development, credit information and credit rating services in collaboration with SME Corp and Credit Bureau Malaysia Sdn.Bhd. Through the Bureau, CGC helps SMEs improve their creditworthiness and bankability, enabling them to secure favourable financing and credit terms from the banks and other credit grantors on their own merit.
February 2018, CGC introduced imSME, Malaysia’s 1st SME Financing/Loan referral platform. imSME serves as an alternative channel for SMEs to find financing products. At different stages of their business developments, SMEs will be guided to legitimate and authorised channels to source for their business financing needs.
In recent years, CGC has forged strategic alliances with many banking partners to offer innovative financing options and delivery channels that are cost-effective and efficient to enhance SMEs access to financing.
To date, CGC has availed 462,853 financing to SMEs valued over RM70.8 billion since its establishment.
Current shareholders of CGC are Bank Negara Malaysia (Central Bank of Malaysia) and others (which majority consists of commercial banks licensed in Malaysia).
