MESSAGE FROM THE CEO

Dear valued investors and partners,

As the year draws to a close, we would like to take a moment to thank you for your investment, support and belief in us.

2018 was a challenging year for financial markets. This was driven by global events and developments here in Malaysia. Markets were roiled by changes in government policies. The US–China trade tensions have dampened confidence. In Malaysia, priorities of the new government have forced investors to rethink their views on sectors and companies.

At Apex Investment Services (AISB), we have made significant changes. Some of these changes were relatively recent. However, much remains work-in-progress. Our team will not let-up. We will continuously strive to improve our processes and discipline. We remain steadfast in our goal to perform our best for our investors and partners. With the government embarking on structural reforms, we are hopeful that better days are ahead for Malaysia.

On behalf of our management and staff at AISB, please allow me to take this opportunity to extend our very warmest season’s greetings to you and your family.
