Bursa Malaysia and Hong Leong Investment Bank (HLIB) have launched the first series of its Bursa-HLIB Stratum Focus, aimed at Government-Linked Investment Companies (GLICs) along with a seminar focusing on the healthcare sector.

Aimed to equip GLICs with sufficient knowledge on various sectors of the industry, the Bursa-HLIB Stratum Series is expected to amass interest from institutional investors by identifying potential investment trends.

In a statement, HLIB head of dealing Zunaidah Idris said

“For the first series of the Bursa-HLIB Stratum Focus seminar, we decided to delve into the Healthcare sector given its above-market return potential. This is attributed to the healthcare sector’s defensive nature, a sustainable above-trend growth as well as the sustainability of the industry growth from the demographic perspective; which include standards of living, the aging population, income growth; and increase in health tourism potential.”

Among the speakers who presented during the Healthcare-themed seminar were Ministry of Health Pharmaceutical Services Division deputy director Dr Ramli Zainal, Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific Healthcare senior vice-president RhenuBhuller, Pharmaniaga Bhd managing director Datuk Farshila Emran and Frost & Sullivan consulting associate Fakhirah Roslan.

Topics covered included National Pharmaceutical Policy and Practices, Overview and Trends of the Healthcare Industry, Healthcare for the Aged and a special lunch talk session on Healthy Lifestyle: Live to 100.
