Malaysia $34 Billion Public Service Retirement Fund KWAP Launches $106 Million Fund to Invest in Startups & Venture Capital Funds

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

21st September 2023  Kumpulan Wang Persaraan (Diperbadankan) [KWAP] announced today the launch of Dana Perintis, aimed at injecting vitality into Malaysia’s venture and startup ecosystem. With a commitment to invest up to RM500 million over the next 18 to 24 months, KWAP is set to empower early-stage companies, drive innovation, and support economic resilience.

Launched by YB Tuan Mohd Rafizi Ramli, Minister of Economy at KWAP’s office earlier today, Dana Perintis encompasses two strategic pillars: investments into selected Malaysia-focused Venture Capital (VC) funds and direct investments into early-stage companies. With an allocation of RM250 million for each pillar, KWAP’s initiative aims to accelerate growth within the Malaysian entrepreneurial landscape in line with KWAP’s sustainability commitment as a signatory of the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).

As one of Malaysia’s prominent investors, KWAP seeks to play a pivotal role in steering the nation toward a flourishing early-stage ecosystem. By strategically investing and addressing critical gaps, KWAP aims to propel the growth trajectory of the startup landscape, reaping attractive risk-adjusted returns for its stakeholders.

A substantial portion of up to RM250 million will be directed towards investing in VC funds with exposure focusing on Malaysia. This approach aligns with KWAP’s endeavour to support the development of a self-sustaining venture ecosystem. These VC funds serve as dynamic catalysts, nurturing innovative startups by providing essential capital and guidance. KWAP’s strategic investments will span the spectrum of the startup journey—ranging from accelerators to growth managers—contributing to the maturation of the overall Malaysian venture space. In parallel to the fund investments, another RM250 million will be committed towards direct investments into promising early-stage companies. This commitment echoes KWAP’s intention to nurture startups through growth and expansion stages.

The launch of Dana Perintis is aligned with the Economy Madani initiative and reflects KWAP’s focus on empowering SMEs for expansion, fostering economic growth and contributing to Malaysia’s entrepreneurial future.

 

As KWAP implements this initiative, it remains conscious of its role and commitment to the pensioners who are its primary stakeholders, to spur the growth of the pension fund and enabling KWAP to fulfil its role in line with its tagline: ‘Your Retirement Companion’.
