Khazanah Nasional Berhad (Khazanah) is the strategic investment fund of the Government of Malaysia.

Khazanah holds and manages selected commercial assets of the Government and undertakes strategic investments on behalf of the nation. We play a catalytic role in driving various strategic industries and national initiatives.

We are involved in sectors such as power, telecommunications, finance, healthcare, aviation, infrastructure, leisure and tourism, and property, amongst others. Our listed portfolio includes Axiata Group Berhad, CIMB Group Holdings Berhad, Tenaga Nasional Berhad, IHH Healthcare Berhad, UEM Sunrise Berhad, Telekom Malaysia Berhad and Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad.

Khazanah was incorporated under the Companies Act 1965 in Malaysia on 3 September 1993 as a public limited company and commenced operations a year later. Khazanah is owned by the Ministry of Finance Incorporated, except for one share held by the Federal Land Commissioner.

In 2004, Tan Sri Dato’ Azman Mokhtar, the present Managing Director, was appointed to lead Khazanah and undertake a strategic revamp based on its new mandate. He reports to the Board of Directors, chaired by Malaysia’s Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib Tun Abdul Razak.

“One of my roles is to oversee our technology investment portfolio. When we invest in technology companies, it is either to help Malaysian companies grow and expand globally, or in overseas companies with the aim of getting technology or high end manufacturing into Malaysia. These technologies frequently also provide opportunities to companies in our existing portfolio, including our GLCs.”

Our proactive investment approach includes the management of our core investments, leveraging on our global footprint for new growth sectors, as well as undertaking catalytic investments that strategically boost the country’s economy. We are also involved in the active development of human, social and knowledge capital for the country.
