In PNB’s more than 40-year journey as a premier investment institution in the country, we made it a priority not only to deliver our mandate on the creation of wealth for Bumiputeras and Malaysians at large, but to also ensure that we have a positive impact on the economy and also on the well-being of society. Financial education for the public has been and continues to be our top priority as it helps to empower the public towards becoming a financially-savvy society.
Minggu Saham Amanah Malaysia (MSAM) or the Malaysia Unit Trust Week has been held annually for 20 years. The start date of this event has been set on 20 April annually to commemorate the launch date of PNB's first unit trust scheme, ASN on 20 April 1981. Since the inaugural event in 2000, a total of 20 MSAM events that covers exhibitions and various activities based on investment education have been organised nationwide moving to all state capitals, and latterly to secondary towns. Supported by state governments, government agencies and corporates, visitors and PNB's unit holders are able to understand and learn how their money is invested and also take part in various family-friendly activities throughout the week.
Moving forward, we will revamp MSAM into a different format which will embrace the increased level of the digital content in consumption, as an effort to drive PNB's digital transformation.
