Note from Publisher
In the 12th AGM of Bhd, Tan Teng Boo, the designated person of the only closed-end fund listed on Bursa Malaysia, shared a video titled “Clean Disruption” by Tony Seba. Due to time constraint, share owners were not able to view the hour-long video in full. Nevertheless, the video has made a lasting impression on many people because they were simply awe-struck by the contents. Essentially, the video is about how technological changes will create such disruptions in the energy and transportation sectors that the world that we know of today will never be the same again.

What is even more amazing is that the disruptive technology is advancing at an even faster pace than what Tony Seba had forecasted. It is not too far-fetched to say that the people of this generation can see with their own eyes the phasing out of the industrial age of energy and transportation. After all, electric vehicles are already common in cities like Shenzhen. Electric motorbikes are everywhere in China. Last month, the US issued guidelines for self-driving cars. Given the pace things are evolving, life can be disrupted in a very significant way if one is not prepared.

Imagine learning about such a technological revolution in the AGM of a closed-end fund ! Expecting to receive vital knowledge has been one of the reasons why share owners turn out in droves to attend the AGM of Bhd every year. Even though there are no breakfast and expensive door gift, the AGM of Bhd is one of the most (if not the most) well attended AGMs in Malaysia. If this love of knowledge can be replicated in the entire societies, the Malaysian economy will definitely be healthier.
