First and foremost, my heartiest congratulations to Phillip Capital Malaysia for a successful launching of the new Phillip Capital branch at Taman Sutera Utama, Skudai, Johor! The Taman Sutera Utama branch is the second Phillip Capital outlet after first stepping foot on Johor back in 2012 and opening their first branch at Taman Molek Johor Bahru. As part of the Phillip Mutual's family of consultants, we were also given an invitation to witness the opening ceremony which was held on the 6th of July 2013.

The event started off with an opening speech by Mr. Andy Lim, MD of Phillip Capital Malaysia. Key highlights of his speech were the achievements of Phillip Capital in Malaysia, thanking Bursa Malaysia Derivatives for their quick response in approving Futures Trading license for this Sutera Branch and lastly his appreciation for everyone whom were present for this ceremony.  

Here is Mr. Andy's speech captured via my Samsung Tab 10.1:

Mr. Lim Wah Tong, Executive Director Phillip Securities Private Limited, Singapore was next to be invited. In his speech, Mr. Lim highlighted the importance of having a one stop financial center close to the neighborhood. The concept of financial center next to the neighborhood has been widely accepted and practiced in Singapore that he hopes that the same concept can also be replicated in Malaysia.

See Mr. Lim's full speech from the video below:

Last but certainly not the least, Mr. Chong Kim Seng, CEO of Bursa Malaysia Derivatives was invited to speak. Being a well articulated man, Mr. Chong certainly lived up to his position of Malaysia's Derivatives top gun as he delivered an inspirational speech about the future of high risk investing in Malaysia.

Once all the key speeches were over, next in line was the launching ceremony. Here's a short video recorded during the ribbon cutting ceremony.

I had the opportunity to speak to Mr. Andy, whom shared his vision of unit trust and how Phillip Capital intends to bring unit trust investing closer to investors.
