Capital Dynamics is hosting the 2018/2019 Global Investor Week to mark its 30th anniversary.

The two-day event, which is part of the company’s social responsibility efforts, aims to make Malaysians better informed and equipped to deal with a world filled with unprecedented disruptions.

It will be held on April 13 and 14 at Dewan San Choon, Wisma MCA, Kuala Lumpur and Plenary Theatre, Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, respectively.

Capital Dynamics founder and managing director Tan Teng Boo, who is also a veteran fund manager, said he would share his assessment of Malaysia’s long-term economic prospects on the first day of the event and Permatang Pauh MP Nurul Izzah Anwar would share her personal views of the country’s long-term political future.

Tan said participants would gain invaluable insights on Malaysia’s direction while the company’s latest research would address the international business climate such as whether the global and United States economies were heading towards recession and was the worst over for the volatile stock markets of China and the US.

Tan will speak on “New Value Investing,” an important session for the value investing aficionado. For investors who have been burnt by the stock carnage on the KLSE in the past few years, this is an ideal time to reassess their investment approaches.

After lunch, the 2019 Budding Value Investor Award will enter its final phase. Five teams will present their research on companies in icapital.biz Bhd’s portfolio.

Submissions from top universities in various countries, including Hong Kong, Australia, China, the United Kingdom, Malaysia and India, will be judged.

All events on the first day are open to the public and admission is free. Day 2 will feature a timely theme, “China – a country the world needs versus a country that needs the world.”

China’s successful transformation has brought many challenges and opportunities. Despite having the world’s largest population, China’s success does not just come from within. The country has always understood the importance of symbiotic relationships with other countries, but the US has portrayed her outreach as a grave threat.

This is an opportunity to uncover crucial details on the biggest story ever in global economics – China’s transformation.

Tan has selected prominent speakers for the talks. Chief among them is politician Deng Xiaoping’s English interpreter Victor Gao Zhikai, who will speak on the importance of China’s economic strength compared with her political strength in a bipolar global structure.

James Bradley, author of the bestselling book The China Mirage, will reveal the undisclosed history of American policy disasters with regards to China. He will speak on the illusions and truths surrounding the world’s two largest economies.

He will provide insights on Huawei, which employs 170,000 people. It is a US$100bil (RM408bil) revenue global company that has been accused by the US as a threat to the world.

Prof David De Cremer of NUS Business School and Judge Business School, Cambridge University, will speak on “Huawei – Is it a threat to the world?”. He is co-author of Huawei: Leadership, Culture, and Connectivity.

Dr Goh Chor Ching, a 20-year economist with the World Bank, is one of the best people to explain what China’s Belt & Road Initiative (BRI) means for its many participating countries.

She has vast experience pertaining to China and BRI countries such as Thailand, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kazakhstan and Georgia.

Meanwhile, Prof Peter Kagwanja from Nairobi will enlighten guests on the African perspective of China.

In the next 30 years, the world’s second largest continent is expected to have more than 1.2 billion people, the equivalent of India.

Tan will conclude the event by presenting his original insights on the transformation of China and explain how this multi-faceted and complex development will impact the rest of the world.

Participation fee for the talks on Day 2 starts from RM720 per person for a group of two.
