Kumpulan Wang Simpanan Pekerja (KWSP) sedang mengkaji tentang jenis aset yang boleh dilaburkan dalam syarikat insurans asing yang beroperasi di negara ini.

KWSP sedang menilai 30 peratus pegangan dalam syarikat insurans asing dan penilaian amat penting untuk memenuhi profil pelaburan mengurus dana pencen dan pulangan /’risk appetite’.

"Kami sangat terbuka untuk meneroka (pengambilalihan) ini. Kami dapati industri insurans sebagai sektor pertumbuhan yang besar di Malaysia. Kami juga mengetahui realitinya pada masa ini di Malaysia kebanyakannya dilindungi oleh insurans. Kami juga yakin syarikat insurans mempunyai infrastruktur yang baik,” kata ketua Pegawai Eksekutif Tunku Alizakri Alias selepas menyampaikan taklimat mengenai Prestasi Kewangan KWSP 2018, di sini, hari ini.

Walau bagaimanapun, Alizakri tidak mendedahkan secara terperinci mengenai potensi pelaburan atau mendedahkan keputusan dari pihak mana yang terlibat.

"Rundingan sedang dibuat pada masa ini, kami akan memaklumkan (keputusannya) tidak lama lagi," katanya.

Alizakri berkata KWSP lazimnya tidak akan melalui pendekatan yang lebih besar sebaliknya perolehan/pelaburan yang strategik.

"Kami tidak percaya dengan pengurusan kawalan - itu adalah strategi kami. 30 peratus (bahagian) sedang dijual kepada syarikat insurans asing, "katanya.

Alizakri berkata: "Kami pasti akan mengambil sebahagian daripada kepentingan yang ditawarkan kepada pasaran."

Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) telah mengarahkan penanggung insurans asing untuk mematuhi peraturan pemilikan asing, dimana diperlukan untuk meningkatkan pegangan saham tempatan sehingga 30 peratus.

Menurut KWSP, sebarang pelaburan akan melibatkan banyak rundingan dan proses penyiasatan, dipandu oleh peruntukan aset strategik (SAA) bagi memastikan dana mengoptimumkan pulangannya pada tahap toleransi risiko.

"Kami mempunyai proses urus tadbir yang besar dan penilaian bersama jawatankuasa pelaburan kami sebelum melabur," kata Alizakri.

Insurance industry has huge growth in Malaysia: EPF

KUALA LUMPUR: The Employees Provident Fund (EPF) is currently evaluating on the type of assets that can be acquired in foreign insurance companies operating in the country.

EPF is eyeing up to 30 per cent stake in foreign insurers and the evaluation is vital to meet the pension fund manager’s investment profile and returns/risk appetite.

“We are very open towards exploring this (acquisition). We look at the insurance industry as a huge growth sector in Malaysia. We know for a fact that Malaysia is heavily under insurance at this point in time. We know insurance companies have lot of good infrastructure,” chief executive officer Tunku Alizakri Alias said after presenting a briefing on the EPF Financial Performance 2018, here, today.

Alizakri however did not divulge details pertaining to the potential acquisition nor reveal finalisation of any deal.

"It is all about negotiation at this point in time. We will inform (results) soon,” he added.

Alizakri said EPF normally would not go into a big bang approach but rather a strategic acquisition.

“We don’t believe in management control - that is our strategy. 30 per cent (stake) is being put up for sale in foreign insurance companies,” he said.

Alizakri said: “We will definitely take a portion of the stake that is being offered to the market.”
Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) had instructed foreign insurers to comply with the foreign ownership rule, which requires them to increase the local shareholding up to 30 per cent.

According to EPF, any investments would involve a lot of negotiations and due diligence, which are guided by strategic asset allocation (SAA) to ensure the fund optimises its returns within its risks-tolerance level.

“We have huge governance process and due diligence together with our investments committee before investing,” said Alizakri.
