Mr Christopher Lee, Chief Executive Officer of ShareInvestor , said, “ShareInvestor leverages on the Internet and events such as Malaysia GEMS 2010 to bridge the information gap between investors and public listed companies. We are pleased to be partnering Bursa Malaysia and to give Singapore investors an opportunity to assess new investment choices in the participating listed Malaysian companies. For these companies, they can raise their public profile and communicate with a new group of investors.”
Following its acquisition by SPH in November 2008, ShareInvestor has partnered The Business Times to organise Malaysia GEMS 2010, with the objective of expanding its reach in the business and investing community.
Mr Alvin Tay, Editor of The Business Times, said, “Malaysia GEMS 2010 leverages on Tthe Business Times’ editorial strength to reach out to investors and the managements of listed companies. Our stories and commentaries give the investment community the latest updates on the companies’ operations and financial results, as well as macro-economic conditions affecting their portfolios. As a newspaper, we also help companies learn about their investors' views and concerns and build public trust and understanding of their policies and strategies".
Dato' Yusli Mohamad Yusoff, CEO of Bursa Malaysia Berhad said, "We believe that it is now time to re-look at the Malaysian market as it has bounced back fairly well after the economic downturn. Opportunities are abundant in many resilient sectors and fundamentally good stocks, enabling investors to stock pick companies that are high-yielding and offer quality investments and strong returns. Through Malaysia GEMS 2010, Singaporean investors can expand their interests and capitalise on the growth opportunities available in the robust Malaysian market. Bursa Malaysia's involvement in Malaysia Gems 2010 is also an indication of the importance it attaches to retail investment from across the causeway."
Malaysia GEMS 2010 will be held at the DBS Auditorium, DBS Building Tower One on Saturday, 8 May 2010 from 9am to 6pm. Registration commences from 8.15am onwards.
