PETALING JAYA: Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB) will be showcasing numerous digital innovations at its upcoming Minggu Saham Amanah Malaysia (MSAM) 2018 exhibition this month as part of its aim to enhance public knowledge on investment and financial planning.
PNB said in a statement yesterday that this year’s exhibition would incorporate various digital elements such as the use of the MSAM 2018 mobile app, which corresponds with this year’s theme of “Digitalising Customer Experience”.
“Through this mobile app, among others, visitors would be able to obtain more information about each programme or event during MSAM 2018, as well as signing up for those that interest them.”
In addition to educating the public on investment and financial planning, PNB group chairman Tan Sri Abdul Wahid Omar said in the statement that MSAM 2018 would become a platform that would highlight the role and contribution of PNB to Malaysians.
“At the same time, the exhibition provides visitors with an opportunity to understand unit trust investments more clearly, particularly on risk-related returns.
“They can also gain insights on how returns obtained through investments in PNB group of companies are redistributed to unit holders in the form of income distribution,” he said.
MSAM 2018 will be held at the Batu Pahat Stadium in Johor from April 19 to 25.
The week-long programme is an annual event which has been organised by PNB since 2000 and has attracted over 3.6 million visitors so far.
The integrated investment exhibition has earned the recognition from the Malaysia Book of Records as “The Longest Running Unit Trust Exhibition (2000-2014)” and received the “Asia Responsible Entrepreneurship Awards 2015 (Social Empowerment Category)” by Enterprise Asia.
