PNB - The Warisan Merdeka 100-storey tower

On my Warisan Merdeka the 100 storey tower post, i got no comments. 

Today, let me take you through PNB... and let's you be your own judge. 

I was shown on this statement by friend which he source from LYN:

"Transparency on the financial statement for all funds: all private mutual funds companies except for PNB. PNB has never annouce their Profit and Lost account of their funds to the public."

About PNB 

Embracing the Winds of Change

If any thought could be etched into the minds of every patriotic Malaysian, it should be this one, by a great Asian leader. And if there could be an event that sparked the transformation of the Malaysian economy, it would undoubtedly be the day Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) was created.

Incorporated on March 17, 1978, PNB was conceived as a pivotal instrument of the Government's New Economic Policy to promote share ownership in the corporate sector among the Bumiputera, and develop opportunities for suitable Bumiputera professionals to participate in the creation and management of wealth.
Prior to the establishment of PNB, efforts to increase Bumiputera ownership in the corporate sector were not sufficient as shares allocated to individuals were seldom retained. Research indicated that when Bumiputera shareholders sold their shares, the profits generated were consumed and not reinvested.

Through PNB, substantial shares acquired in major Malaysian corporations from funds provided by Yayasan Pelaburan Bumiputra or Bumiputra Investment Foundation were transferred to a trust fund and sold to the Bumiputera in the form of smaller units.

By employing this innovative investment model, PNB ensures that these shares are retained, resulting in the cultivation of widespread savings habits, and development of entrepreneurship and investment skills of Bumiputera.

With fund under management totaling about RM150 billion, the PNB Group is the country's leading investment institution with a diversified portfolio of interests that include unit trusts, institution property trust, property management and asset management.

This is the best i can get. The Warisan Merdeka 100-storey tower just cost RM5 billion which is a tidy portion to PNB. Thus its can be done financially. As at todate, we dont know extractly how deep the PNB pocket are but to depend the info available from website. 

But hey, you can spend the RM5 billion from the total RM150 billion and left RM145 billion. This is sound very "simple" calculation right? You're wrong. The return tht PNB have promised to their stakeholder, in this case the ASN unit trusts holders, they might get lower return. 

Ok, i should feel safe as im not invested in any ASN unit trust, but my aunt, uncle, grandpa, grandmum, neighbors are investing in ASN unit trust...  

You be the judge.

I find this an absolute joke: The mission to "enhance the economic wealth of the Bumiputera community".

RM 5 billion being spent on a useless icon. You want progress in the Bumiputera community? START SPENDING ON EDUCATION.
