RHB Investment Management Aims For Nationwide Agency Expansion

Kuala Lumpur, 26 May 2010:In its bid to spread its nationwide presence, RHB Investment Management Sdn. Bhd. (RHBIM) held a mass recruitment drive at the Prince Hotel, Kuala Lumpur yesterday for interested individuals to join its expanding agency force.


RHBIM plans to increase its distribution channels all over Malaysia, region by region via such mass recruitment exercise with the intention of widening market reach in order to support its new and existing customers. This will be carried out through a series of roadshows, self-enhancing seminars and career fairs targeted at fresh graduates and members of the general public who are seeking a career boost.


"Our business plan calls for continuous aggressive growth in 2010," said Sharifatul Hanizah Said Ali, Managing Director of RHBIM. "Engaging larger sales and support teams are crucial to achieving our expansion objectives. With the expansion of our distribution channels, we will also be looking at offering a series of innovative products to the investing public this year.Ē


The expansion exercise took off with a positive start early last month in the northern region and East Malaysia, where seminar events held in Penang, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu saw an encouraging number of participants. RHBIM will be eyeing the east coast and central region as upcoming destinations for recruitment.


RHBIM is a wholly-owned subsidiary of RHB Investment Bank, under the Corporate and Investment Banking arm of the RHB Banking Group, and currently has a stable of 23 retail funds.
