Tabung Haji says FGV shares a strategic investment

Lembaga Tabung Haji today said its shareholdings in Felda Global Ventures Holdings Bhd (FGV) were a long-term strategic investment in one of its priority sectors for investment. Depositors need not worry as their money has not vanished as was alleged, and their deposits are guaranteed, Tabung Haji said in a statement today. The drastic fall in global palm oil prices has directly affected commodity-based companies and negatively affected plantation stocks, it said. "The fall in global commodity prices is beyond our control as it is determined by existing market forces." In a statement yesterday, Pandan MP Rafizi Ramli said Tabung Haji had lost RM933 million through its shares in FGV. – Bernama, February 17, 2016.]]>
