Khazanah Megatrends Forum (KMF)

Much of Malaysia’s history can be viewed via a geographic lens. Maritime trading kingdoms such as Malacca and Johor-Riau owe a large part of their success to convenient locations along India-China shipping routes. Tropical climate and appropriate soil further added to a confluence of factors that made Malaya a desirable region to establish British colonies. Indeed, according to Professors Jomo K.S. and Wee Chong Hui (2014), Malaya was Britain’s most profitable colony in the immediate post-war period1, contributing much of the export earnings that financed British post-war reconstruction. The British introduced non-native rubber and (subsequently) oil palm to Malaya, which took hold and became the engine of the Malaysian economy.

PPI 2016 Summer Roundtable

Risk in an Age of Uncertainty
How are Investors Understanding and Managing it?
Cambridge, Massachusetts (USA)

About the Summer Roundtable
If “cautious optimism” abounded at the beginning of 2015, many institutional investors marked the start of 2016 with great uncertainty. Along with dampened return expectations, the current environment reflects the substantial impact of policy driven markets as well as questions related to risk allocation and volatility. Investors have learned that outlier events occur more frequently than models may suggest, and highlight just how deeply interconnected markets and the institutions that govern them really are. We often see seemingly isolated risk events having global ramifications. While some of these risks have existed for many years, e.g., the prospect of a mismanaged landing in China and Eurozone fragility, others are relatively new and present a growing concern for investors. Market complexity is at a zenith and fuels uncertainty – particularly systemic risks. How are investors addressing risks and uncertainties? How can they prepare for the next ten years, i.e., identifying uncertainties that can become serious investment risks? The Summer Roundtable will consider the risks facing institutional investors in the current environment and strategies being utilized to navigate them.
