The investment landscape has been dominated by a host of macro issues, yet the firm's focus has remained steadfast on identifying growth opportunities. 'The global markets, especially in the United States, have been widely acknowledged as the performing markets of the year. Despite this, our global and ASEAN funds showcased remarkable resilience and performed well even amid adverse market conditions. This success is largely due to our strategic focus on regions and sectors that demonstrate robustness and are poised to benefit from cyclical trends', says Datuk Wira De Alwis. The firm's investment excellence is demonstrated in its 6th consecutive Best Equity Manager and 5th consecutive Best House for Alternatives awards.

Kenanga Investors' leadership in sustainability and impact investing is demonstrated through its commitment to generating positive social and environmental outcomes alongside financial returns for its clients. 'Today, our role and engagements with investee companies has evolved beyond raising awareness, to fostering in-depth, two-way conversations focusing on enhancing existing practices and developing structured strategies. As such, we are honoured to receive not one, but two awards recognising our efforts within this space, including Best Impact Investing Manager in ASEAN', Datuk Wira De Alwis explains.

Continuing its trajectory of innovation, Kenanga Investors recently broadened its product portfolio with the introduction of the Kenanga Islamic Asia Pacific (ex Japan) Total Return Fund. This new fund diversifies into the global Asia Pacific region in order to capture growth opportunities and to cater to a wider range of investor preferences, particularly those seeking Shariah-compliant investment options. This, combined with the expansion of its distribution networks, growth of its client segments and improved operational efficiency has contributed to its second Most Improved Fund House title.

In 2024, the firm expects to bring to market new solutions; from strategies that incorporate AI to regional private credit opportunities, as well as broader private market solutions and sustainability-linked investments.
