Continued progress and sustained performance in long-term value creation; across financial, strategic and value distribution performance

Realisable asset value (RAV) and net worth adjusted (NWA) are the two indicators used to measure Khazanah’s performance. RAV represents the total value of our investment portfolio while NWA measures the value created in our portfolio.

At at 31 December 2017, Khazanah’s RAV stood at RM157.2 billion. This represents an increase of 8.2% from RM145.3 billion at the end of 2016. Meanwhile, NWA stood at RM115.6 billion, an increase of 13.2% from RM102.1 billion at the end of 2016.

Long-term value creation remains on an uptrend. As at 31 December 2017, RAV had increased by RM106.3 billion, or 3.1 times from the RM50.9 billion recorded in May 2004, with a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.6% per annum. 2004 was the year Khazanah received our new mandate. Similarly, our NWA had gained RM82.3 billion, or 3.5 times from RM33.3 billion over the same period, with a CAGR of 9.6% which is in tandem with the FBM-KLCI’s CAGR of 9.7% (see Portfolio Net Worth Adjusted Against FBM-KLCI Since May 2004 chart below).

Khazanah recorded a stronger profit before tax of RM2.9 billion in 2017, an increase of 81.3% from RM1.6 billion in 2016. Khazanah declared dividends of RM1 billion in 2017, bringing total dividends declared since May 2004 to RM10.11 billion. Our shareholders’ funds rose to RM41.4 billion in 2017 from RM37.8 billion in 2016, while liabilities remained manageable at RM51.2 billion.

Our capital position remains strong with asset cover and net gearing standing at 3.1 times and 1.1 times, respectively. These financial ratios have been achieved as a result of risk management and prudential measures that have been put in place over the years, enabling our portfolio to remain strong and resilient in a volatile environment and continue focusing on long term value creation.
