LEADERSHIP

To establish Ekuinas, the Malaysian government provided an initial endowment in the form of a grant held in a trust known as Yayasan Ekuiti Nasional, whose mandate is to enhance and grow Bumiputera equity interest.

The funds held under YEN are directed into Ekuinas Capital Sdn Bhd, which serves as the designated Fund Capital Company. Ekuinas functions as the Private Equity Fund Management Company and the operating entity where the Management team resides.

Both Ekuinas and Ekuinas Capital are wholly owned subsidiaries of YEN.
