The Edge Malaysia - The Chinese Impact on Asian Export (25 March 2019)

Asian export growth has been slowing as the global economy cools, dragged down in part by China's slowdown. And China's trade tensions with the US are not helping either. Moody's Investors Service looked at 23 Asia-Pacific countries to see which are the most vulnerable to a sustained slowdown in Chinese demand and which could benefit if trade and investments move away from China.

February 4, 2019, The Edge Malaysia - The road less travelled

"I think leadership is something that needs to be nurtured.We need to mentor leaders," Yeoh says thoughtfully. "What I think is leaders should have some core values, and one of the things I've been advocating for is that leadership should embrace the three Es and three Hs. The Es are ethics, excellence and execution, which is turning vision into reality. The Hs are hard work, humility and a sense of humour. "We beg your pardon? Yeoh smiles. "It's true. Leaders must be able to laugh at themselves, at their mistakes and learn from them. This ensures that they don't get so worked up when things don't go their way."

January 7, 2019, The Edge Malaysia - Leap of faith

The global Islamic economy not only comprises Islamic finance but also halal food, travel, media, recreation, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics as well as modest fashion. With Muslims representing more than 22% ofthe world's population and expanding at a much faster pace than other religions, there will continue to be a growing addressable market for digital Islamic services, says Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Ltd in its report, The Digital Islamic Senäces Landscape: Uncovering the Digital Islamic Services Opportunityfor the Middle East and the World. The Thomson Reuters report points out that there is significant scope for growth and maturity in the Islamic economy as only US$745 million in private equity investments were channel-led to this segment over the past three years — a far cry from the US$595 billion in conventional private equity and venture capital investments across the globe in 2017.

November 5, 2018, The Edge Malaysia - Weathering The Challenges

As for June this year, the group has about 9,600 acres of undeveloped land in Malaysia with an estimated gross development value of RM155.94 billion, which, Khor says, will keep it busy for many years. However, it will add to its land bank if "there is a deal we cannot refuse". Overall, the group has held steady despite the soft local market, the surprise additional buyer's stamp duty (ABSD) in Singapore and Brexit.

November 5, 2018, The Edge Malaysia - Staying Relevant by Meeting Market Needs

How is Kong able to stay so grounded and bide his time when the typical inclination is to rush everything in the hope of hastening earnings? He reveals that his steady approach was born out of his sobering observation of how other businessmen went bankrupt because they tried to grow their businesses too quickly. In the current soft market, it is to be expected that some of the company's projects have slower-than-expected sales. But, overall group performance has remained good, due to the company's diverse portfolio of products.

November 5, 2018, The Edge Malaysia - Right Combination of Location, Product and Pricing is Essential

"We must be flexible in our development process and always have our ear to the ground to know the heartbeat of the buyers and what they want, because there are demands. You need to know exactly what they are looking for. It is not only about pricing ... but it is with that pricing, what property type are they looking for," he says. The right balance is key, he says, adding that it is important for one to be positive as the property development industry is cyclical. It is like choosing to see a glass half full or half empty.

November 5, 2018, The Edge Malaysia - Embracing Sustainability in Community Building

"We have been looking for opportunities but the pricing is not right. We would rather be careful about how we expand, and the fact is that the group has done well in this soft market with our diversified business. With recurring income, we do not have to keep launching just to maintain the numbers and it does not add to the overhang situation," she says. "The fact that we utilise the 'build, own, operate' model has helped us to not drive sales for the sake of the numbers. In a soft market, it allows us to focus on building the community."
