    I'll give you an important one:

    1: Generally, one has jurisdiction in Malaysia and the other has jurisdiction in the US.

    What makes you think that anyone here has any knowledge of Malaysian laws?

    1. Malaysian courts are located in Malaysia, whereas U.S. courts are located in the U.S. (and its territories).
    2. Malaysian courts typically apply Malaysian law, whereas U.S. courts typically apply U.S. federal or state law.
    3. Both countries have legal systems that derive, in part, from English common law.
    4. Malaysian courts will sometimes apply Islamic law, whereas U.S. courts will virtually never apply any sort of religious law.

    Two of these things would be painfully obvious to anyone with half a brain, and the other two were found in about 10 seconds by googling.

    Now...go do the rest of your schoolwork on your own and don't ask anonymous strangers on the internet to do it for you (especially given that those strangers may not have your interests at heart and may make up stuff to teach you a lesson about the value of doing your own work).

    YOU do it yourself. Now run along - you have research to do.

    I do know about differences in approach to Fintech and regulations but that's about it. I've studied Malaysia's regulatory sandbox - Malaysia's Financial Technology Enabler Group (FTEG) which is quite impressive. Home
