Year of Overcomer and Jubilation

Chairman Statement

While the global macroeconomics, political and post Covid-19 pandemic continue to send mixed signals, it’s more critical that our fund demonstrate a sound plan and to consider investment strategy that takes social, environmental, transparency and sustainability (SETS) issues into account, to maximize long-term investment performance and better manage stakeholders’ expectations.

Typical fund companies in the 21st Century take into consideration the risk-reward assessment in their investment strategy which is two dimensional. Suria Global and its regional professionals’ investment philosophy takes into consideration the “Triple R” assessment which is Risk, Reward and Real-World Impact on each investment and we also strive to be the Fund Provider of the last resort.

We anticipate 2023 will be an exciting year of jubilation. May God lead us in His gracious path always.

—— Mr. Omar Yassin bin Abdullah
