Fully capitalising on the team's knowledge, expertise and insights on global economies and markets as well as individual industries, the Group focuses on long-term investment opportunities into businesses and industries where their management expertise and competencies can create sustainable profit growth leading to the creation of capital value.

Guoco Group's portfolio and strategic investments are not limited to any specific industry or sector, but priority would be given to industries which are relevant to the Asian market where the Group has extensive core businesses, as well as industries that will provide core synergistic value with the Group's existing businesses.

Operating out of Malaysia, the Group Investment Office (GIO) is focused on building value through direct investments particularly in the South East Asian region. At the same time, the GIO is also tasked to source and identify investment opportunities that can form future core businesses for the Group or those that would enhance, expand or synergise with existing Group operations.

With clear mandates, sound investment processes and infrastructure and the strong backing of the Group's operations, the GIO plays an important role in the continuous growth of Hong Leong Group.
