KUALA LUMPUR: The Securities Investors Association Singapore (SIAS) will organise a retail investment seminar, themed “Malaysia Day 2008”.
In a joint statement yesterday, SIAS and Bursa Malaysia said the seminar was aimed at generating Singaporean investor interest in Malaysian-listed securities.
Bursa Malaysia Bhd chief executive officer Datuk Yusli Mohamed Yusoff said the bourse was a high-yielding market and offered one of the highest dividend yields in this region.
“As such, investors should consider investing in fundamentally-good stocks which are aplenty on our exchange,” he said.
SIAS president David Gerald said the current credit crunch and financial market meltdown had once again brought investment opportunities to investors.
“Stocks which are normally beyond the reach of investors have now become potential investment prospect.
“Both Singapore and Malaysia have good offerings for investors willing to take a mid- to long-term view on their investments for good returns,” he said.
Sponsored by Bursa Malaysia, the seminar – which will be held on Nov 8 at the Rock Auditorium, Singapore – will feature profile presentations by chief executive officers of eight selected Malaysian public-listed companies from various sectors. — Bernama
