The risk that investors face here is mainly due to the country’s political conditions and deficits. In 2008, the political tensions and electoral issues became the cause of an economic crisis which introduced instability to the country’s economic image and has lead the investors to be more cautious in the future.
For foreign investors, the easiest way to invest in Malaysia is ETFs (Exchange-Traded Funds). Other choices include ADR (American Depository Receipts) and the Bursa Malaysia Stock Exchange. The country’s stock exchange offers multiple investment choices with 1000 companies being one of the largest stock exchange in Asia.
