Is Malaysia a Safe Haven?

Malaysia being an emerging Asian economy that runs an oil and gas trade surplus with trade in energy accounting for 0.4% of GDP seems to appear resilient. Is Malaysia a good place to park some money in? Ang Beng Kuan, Head of Investment of Hong Leong Islamic Asset Management shares his view. Image credit: Shutterstock.com
