Malaysian shares .KLSE were dragged down by Malayan Banking Bhd MBBM.KL that closed 2 percent lower after the country's largest lender said allowance for impaired loans and financing in full-year 2018 were expected to be higher than the previous year.
Tenaga Nasional TENA.KL , IHH Healthcare IHHH.KL and Sime Darby Bhd SIME.KL also weighed on the index, following disappointing earnings.
