Valuecap To Invest In Undervalued Malaysian Companies
September 14, 2015 | Publication : ValueCAP Sdn. Bhd.

In response to the announcement today by the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, that ValueCAP would be allocated RM20 billion as one of the Government’s pro-active measures to support the Malaysian economy, Group Chief Executive Officer of ValueCAP Group, Sharifatu Laila Syed Ali said, “We welcome the announcement by the Government as we see value in the market. We plan to take advantage of the market correction/s and enter the market without causing any disruption or volatility”.

ValueCAP was set up as an investment holding company in October 2002, principally involved in investments in listed securities on Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad (“Bursa Malaysia”). The company’s shareholders are Khazanah Nasional Berhad, Permodalan Nasional Berhad and Kumpulan Wang Persaraan (Diperbadankan). ValueCAP has two wholly-owned, licensed fund management subsidiaries, namely VCAP Asset Managers Sdn Bhd (“VCAM”) and i-VCAP Management Sdn Bhd (“i-VCAP”).

Since the commencement of its operations in 2003, ValueCAP had managed proprietary investments – i.e. investments of its own monies, in marketable securities listed on Bursa Malaysia, as mandated by its shareholders. Initially funded by borrowings of RM5.1 billion from its shareholders, ValueCAP's Assets Under Management grew to over RM17.2 billion in size in 2010.

ValueCAP’s Track Record

Astute management of these investments allowed ValueCAP to over time generate profit of approximately RM8.5 billion on the back of RM12.7 billion revenue since its inception. It has also paid out dividends to shareholders amounting to RM8.4 billion.

The Group has since expanded its business model, from managing proprietary investments only to taking on third party mandates via its subsidiaries, VCAM and i-VCAP, so as to lend its portfolio management expertise to the broader market.
