Khazanah National Berhad

Khazanah At Glance

Khazanah Nasional is the investment holding arm of the Government of Malaysia and is empowered as the Government’s strategic investor in new industries and markets. As trustees to the nation’s commercial assets, our main objective is to promote economic growth and make strategic investments on behalf of the Government which would contribute towards nation building.

Khazanah is also tasked to nurture the development of selected strategic industries in Malaysia with the aim of pursuing the nation’s long-term economic interests.

Khazanah has investments in over 50 major companies, both in Malaysia and abroad, and our companies are involved in a broad spectrum of industries.

Khazanah is also the key agency mandated to drive shareholder value creation, efficiency gains and enhance corporate governance in companies controlled by the government, commonly known as Government-Linked Companies, or GLCs.


Khazanah Nasional is a driving force in shaping selected strategic industries in Malaysia, nurturing their development and doing so with the objective of pursuing the nation’s long-term economic interests.

As we move forward, Khazanah is entrusted to explore strategic investment opportunities in new sectors and new markets. We aim to manage our investment portfolio to realise its long-term potential, and at the same time investing in what we believe would be future winners.

Our current investments are distributed among various industries, mainly; finance, telecommunications, utilities, communication services, information technology and transportation. We are also venturing into other promising sectors with the vision to lead and develop strategic industries.

Vision and Mission

Khazanah will be regarded as a leading regional strategic investment house that drives superior corporate performance with high standards of achievement in sectors that are deemed strategic to the nation’s economy. We are committed to building a globally competitive Malaysia by developing the right human capital and maintaining the highest professional ethics. We shall develop a high level of integrity and professionalism with the aim of earning the trust of those with and for whom we work.

Our Culture

We look to cultivate a team committed to nation building as its common bond. This culture defines us as individuals who, collectively, enrich the institution by energising it with ideas, expertise and talents that come from a myriad of disciplines.

Strategy – Introduction

Key themes of Khazanah Nasional’s mandate as a strategic investment house include:

  • Creating sustainable value
  • Raising national competitiveness
  • Cultivating a culture of high performance

These are to be achieved via four strategic pillars; namely:

  • Legacy investments: Streamline, restructure, nurture
  • GLC transformation: Increase shareholder and strategic value
  • New investments: New sectors, cross border
  • Human capital management: Active development of Human Capital for the nation

The framework for change in Khazanah Nasional’s mandate announced by YABhg. Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi in May 2004 is within the broader context of the very important task of improving national competitiveness. This is especially pertinent in view of the increasing pressures of liberalisation and globalisation.

Khazanah is to take on a proactive role to catalyse the transformation of the Government-Linked Companies (GLC) into high-performing entities that are better prepared for a more liberalized world. GLCs are companies that have a primary commercial objective and in which the Malaysian Government has a direct controlling stake. The GLC transformation program is part of an ongoing effort by the government to drive the development of and grow the Malaysian economy by enhancing the performance of the companies under its control.

In this respect, Khazanah’s role as an active strategic investor now involves driving and creating greater shareholder and strategic value. The first involves financial returns, the second, generally, in terms of enhancing capabilities. This may involve, where appropriate, taking calculated risks on behalf of the nation in new sectors and new markets that are deemed important in terms of penetration, linkages and potential for the nation’s long-term competitiveness.
