BACKGROUND
Ekuiti Nasional Berhad, or Ekuinas, is a private equity fund management company established by the Government of Malaysia on 1 September 2009 to promote equitable and sustainable Bumiputera economic participation via the creation of Malaysia’s next generation of leading companies.

The Government’s endowment to Ekuinas is provided in the form of a grant to be held in trust by Yayasan Ekuiti Nasional (YEN), a specific trust whose mandate is to enhance and grow Bumiputera equity interest. The funds are invested in high potential medium-sized Malaysian companies through the private equity approach in a merit-based, market-friendly and transparent manner which contributes towards the Government’s aim towards achieving a more inclusive economic model.

The Board of Trustees for YEN is comprised of YAB Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak, the Prime Minister and Minister of Finance; and YAB Tan Sri Dato’ Haji Muhyiddin bin Mohd Yassin, the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Education; together with several ministers and senior officials from the government.

To ensure its results are sustainable, the Company is committed to pursuing its goals in a market-friendly, merit-based and transparent manner.Through its investments, Ekuinas also aims to promote and strengthen equitable Bumiputera participation within the Malaysian economy across four key dimensions:-

  • Enhancing corporate equity ownership;
