Abstract

Internet technology is believed to improve efficiency and good practice of information dissemination. This paper examined the investment information disclosed by Malaysian Listed Companies via their websites. Evaluations of investment information's disclosure via the websites were based on score towards the disclosure index developed. One hundred companies listed on the Bursa Malaysia’s Mainboard are selected based on their market capitalization. This study identifies the level of investment information disclosure across industry and found that the investment information disclosure and usage of the multimedia are still unsatisfactory. This study also tests the extent of such disclosure with several firm characteristics (profitability, auditor, efficiency and size) and the result shows that only firm’s size is significant. The implications of these findings are discussed.
