Coffee Talk...


Hello everyone,

We're pleased to announce the launch of FCCM's Coffee Talk series, with the inaugural talk on 1MDB by Kinibiz founding editor P Gunasegaram.

Date: April 30, Thursday

Time: 7.30pm

Venue: Scoop, Level 8, Menara Dion,
Jalan Sultan Ismail.

Guna and his team at business news portal Kinibiz have been writing extensively on the troubled state-owned company. 1MDB most recently took a loan from the government after racking up over 40 billion ringgit in liabilities, raising concerns that the company may be facing cash crunch.

At the talk, Guna shared some insights on issues surrounding the company from a reporter's perspective. He also highlighted challenges that the company will face in the near term and other signs that we should look out for in the longer run.

Guna has worked for over 35 years as a journalist and analyst in Malaysia, holding key editorial positions in The Star, The Edge and Malaysian Business. He has also been head of Malaysian equity research at foreign and local brokerages.
