Minneapolis, MN, March 7, 2019 – Magni Global Asset Management LLC (Magni) announced today that Islamic Finance News has included an adaptation of its recent article, “Malaysia’s Once-in-a-Lifetime Opportunity” in its February 26 Special Report.

The article, authored by Magni CEO Kurt Lieberman, focuses on Malaysia’s future in the wake of the 2018 victory of Pakatan Harapan, the then-opposition party, and its current prime minister, Dr. Mahathir Bin Mohamad. Lieberman has traveled to Malaysia in recent years and has developed a deep understanding of the country’s government structure as well as its culture. Because Magni’s research focuses on measuring good governance at the country and company levels, it has proven that strong, well-run institutions that operate in a transparent manner are crucial for good governance. Based on Malaysia’s need for strengthened institutions, he discusses which institutions should be strengthened; what success looks like; and details tangible reform in six areas could have significant positive and lasting impact on Malaysia.
