Our History

Key Corporate Milestones

Khazanah commenced operations in 1994, assuming a custodial role in managing the Government’s commercial assets and investing in strategic and high-technology sectors. In 2004, we undertook an expanded and more active investment approach, which includes enhancing the performance of its existing core holdings while seeking opportunities in new economic sectors and geographies. In 2018, our mandate was refreshed to reflect our contribution towards Malaysia’s long-term wealth.

The timeline below highlights our key milestones from 2014-2019. To view our journey from 1994-2013, click here.
