Khazanah hosts several series of knowledge events.

The Khazanah Megatrends Forum (KMF) is held annually, preceding Khazanah’s strategy and business planning cycle. The KMF brings together thought leaders from around the world – in front of an audience of more than a thousand influential participants from business, government, academia and society – and conducts in-depth discussions of current critical issues from four key perspectives: markets, firms, society and people. The Forum entered its 13 th annual instalment in 2017 with the theme “Cerebrum X Algorithm: Building True Value in a Post-Truth World”. In addition to the four Core Sessions on Markets, Firms, Society and People, as well as several keynote addresses, the 2017 KMF also saw two Special Sessions on ASEAN and Technology.
