Close up session with Private Fund Manager – Company P Chief Investment Officer

Just last week, the firm I am with, Fin Freedom invited the Chief Investment Officer of  Company P, Mr Ang Kok Heng, all the way from KL, to present a 1.5 hours by-invitation-only private session with clients at Fin Freedom HQ in Penang. The session was filled to the brim – I was there with my clients, along with my peers. When it comes to learning about investment, there is no stopping point, yes? It is a good to get into the minds of these private fund managers whenever possible – to see how they see things. I do my own DIY investing in stocks and REITs, but I also do have my portfolio managed fully by Company P. It’s very interesting to see what they buy and sell, and when and WHY.

Company P manages cash investment portfolio for investors (minimum RM 50k) known as PMA or mini-PMA (Private Managed Account), aside from being an approved fund manager for Malaysia’s mandatory retirement fund (for member’s investment withdrawal). This is a more exotic option other than the usual unit trust investment.
