  • Despite 1MDB woes, pundits say Najib now unassailable after Cabinet purge

    KUALA LUMPUR, July 29 ― With the strategic removal of potential challengers from within his Cabinet, Datuk Seri Najib Razak is likely to remain prime minister until the next election despite his troubles with debt-riddled 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), political observers said. With a specific reference to his deputy in government as well as in Umno, Tan Sri Muhyiddin, the analysts said the prime minister has effectively neutralised dissent within his party at the risk of enlarging the rift between the camps of both leaders. “Najib will stay as PM, what he has done is standard textbook on political survival, a carrot-and-stick approach where you get rid of your detractors and reward your loyalists,” Universiti Malaysia Sarawak political scientist Dr Faisal Hazis told Malay Mail Online when contacted yesterday.

  • Chinese investors take 'most' risk, Japanese 'least' in Asia's five wealthiest markets: Survey

    Hong Kong, July 29 (ANI): A study of Asia's five wealthiest markets shows that investors in China take the most risk, whilst Japanese investors are the most risk averse, with investor behaviour in both countries, suggesting that investors still need to improve efficiencies to achieve balanced risk portfolios to reach long-term financial goals. The findings of the survey by Manulife were used to develop a Risk Appetite Index, which ranks territories in the region based on investor attitudes towards risk, looking specifically at the existing asset allocation of household balance sheets, preferences for equity type and investment behavior in mutual funds. The survey revealed that investor risk appetite across the region is at odds with behavior, with investors expressing a preference for more stable investments, while in reality many choose to invest in higher risk investment vehicles.
