June 20, 2022


RCE Capital Berhad was formerly Rediffusion Bhd, a company which operates a wireless radio broadcasting station with two nationwide radio channels, 998 (in Chinese) and RED 104.9 (BM and English). In June 2003, the media broadcasting business was hived off to Star Commercial Publications. The name was changed to RCE Capital in October 2003.

RCE is a non-bank shariah compliant financial services provider within the Islamic financial eco-system. It gets its funding by issuing debt securities and pledging its financial receivables or securitization for banking facilities. Its main business is personal financing to government civil servants and repayment of loans is via monthly deductions from salary. RCE's strategy is to expand beyond this to other forms of shariah-compliant financing.  Non-core income, about RM19 million as at 31 March 2021 is mainly from deposits placed with banks.  

SHAHMAN AZMAN, son of veteran banker, Tan Sri Azman Hashim (81), is a graduate of Chapman University USA with a Bachelor of Communications degree. He has been with the Amcorp Group of companies since 1996. Currently he is also a director of Singapore listed Amcorp Global Limited, and  the Deputy CEO of Bursa Malaysia listed Amcorp Properties Berhad where his sister, Shalina Azman is chairman.

In 1982 he acquired Aminvestment Bank Berhad. There is a book titled "The Entrepreneur Banker" which is an autobiography of Tan Sri.
