NATIONWIDE SURVEY REPORT
Identifying the Pulse of the Nation
The Unit Trust industry, the barometer of Malaysia’s Collective Investment Scheme industry, has been on a continuous growth pattern since the ‘90s. However, upon dissecting the growth pattern into shorter time frames, it is observed that the industry’s Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) has been on a diminishing trend. Being a key component in Malaysia’s Capital Market, it is crucial to analyse and understand the reason(s) behind the diminution, to ensure that the necessary future proofing efforts are undertaken to restore the stature of the Unit Trust industry (including the Private Retirement Scheme industry). This is the primary purpose of the Nationwide Survey, which aims to identify the present “investment pulse” of Malaysians.
