Maybank Asset Management Group (MAMG) and Schroder Investment Management (Singapore) has launched a long-term strategic partnership to co-develop a range of specialist investment solutions for the growing and increasingly sophisticated wealth market in Malaysia.

Marking the start of this collaboration, two discretionary portfolios will be launched in November 2018 – Global High Dividend Equity Portfolio and Global High Conviction Portfolio. These solutions will be managed by Maybank Asset Management Malaysia, a unit of MAMG, and offered to sophisticated investors, with Schroders Singapore as the investment adviser.

Susan Soh, Chief Executive Officer of Schroders Singapore said: “We are delighted to partner with MAMG in seeking to deliver unique alpha-generating investment ideas to Malaysian investors. With more than 200 years of investment experience, we bring to MAM Malaysia not just the best of Schroders’ global investment expertise, but also the experience of our Wealth Management arm in providing wealth and advisory solutions for HNW clients.

“We believe our ability to combine the key tenets of asset management and wealth management offers a differentiated value proposition to MAM Malaysia’s clients.“

As part of this continuing partnership, MAMG and Schroders will undertake further collaboration projects in 2019 to co-develop solutions across other asset classes, including Shariah-compliant Investments and Private Assets.
