ALL foreign investment opportunities are analysed to ensure the risk-return tradeoff fits the requirements of a retirement savings fund, the Employees Provident Fund (EPF) said today.

This came following yesterday’s announcement that the EPF will invest an additional US$3 billion (RM12.6 billion) to US$4 billion on infrastructure redevelopment in the United States. Prime Minister Najib Razak made the announcement at a meeting with US President Donald Trump at the White House.

  • All foreign investments subjected to stringent risk assessment, says EPF :- ...... but NOT local investments, eh eg FGV, MAS etc? Why did EPF invest in "cronies" companies helmed by "half-past-six" ex-politicians and ex-civil servants? To support their share prices at the expense of long suffering EPF contributors?
