SINGAPORE /PRNewswire/ — Singapore wine merchant Bordeaux Liquid Gold (BLG) announced today that it has secured a new partnership with French winery Chateau Angelus that will see BLG awarded exclusive distribution rights in Singapore and Malaysia for Angelus’ Number 3 d’Angelus wine.

Owned by the de Bouards — whose family history in the area dates back almost 600 years — since 1782, Chateau Angelus has one of the longest histories in the Saint Emilion appellation. Previously known as Chateau Mazerat, for which production first started in 1991, Number 3 d’Angelus was introduced in 2007 and is produced using the estate’s youngest vines.

In June 2012, Stephanie de Bouard-Rivoal, the daughter of Hubert de Bouard, was named executive manager of the estate. That same year on September 6, Chateau Angelus was upgraded in the official 2012 St. Emilion Classification to Premier Grand Cru Classe A, an honor shared by only four St. Emilion estates.

In 2016, Stephanie de bouard-Rivoal bought a substantial stake of shares from her family that saw her become the main shareholder in the company, thus securing the future of the Bordeaux estate within the family. She was joined in summer 2016 by her cousin Thierry Grenie de Bouard and together they manage the estate.

Commenting on the agreement with BLG, Ms. de Bouard-Rivoal said, “At Chateau Angelus, it has always been a key issue in our distribution policy to select the best possible ambassadors for our wines. In this respect, we are extremely pleased to announce that Bordeaux Liquid Gold has been granted the distribution of Number 3 d’Angelus for the Singapore and Malaysia territories. The great relationship we have had for years with its dynamic and talented CEO Mr. Julian Poh allows us to be entirely confident with the fact he and his team will be devoted to promoting our wines and the unique history behind them.”

BLG is a wine merchant specializing in en primeur and also wholesale and distribution of premium wine with offices in Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Mainland China.

Pacific Mutual: Kecairan Mencukupi dan Pasaran Disokong Baik

leave a comment »

PETALING JAYA, Malaysia /PRNewswire/ — Dalam satu kenyataan hari ini, Pacific Mutual Fund Bhd, sebuah syarikat pengurusan pelaburan di bawah OCBC Group, dengan sumber dalaman untuk mengurus kedua-dua pelaburan tempatan dan global untuk para pelanggannya, menjangka pasaran ekuiti akan terus disokong baik.

Teh Chi-cheun, Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif & Pengarah Eksekutif, Pacific Mutual Fund Bhd
Teh Chi-cheun, Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif & Pengarah Eksekutif, Pacific Mutual Fund Bhd
Menurut Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif dan Pengarah Eksekutif Pacific Mutual, Teh Chi-cheun, “Pencarian pendapatan bermula selepas krisis kewangan global apabila kadar faedah dipotong sehingga sifar dan kadar faedah sekarang juga hampir mencecah kadar sifar ataupun negatif seperti di Eropah dan negara Jepun. Oleh sebab tiadanya peningkatan kadar faedah yang ketara secara global, para pelabur yang memerlukan pendapatan akan melabur dalam saham-saham yang membayar dividen, yang kebanyakannya saham-saham defensif. Kami juga menyaksikan trend ini di Malaysia. Minat terhadap saham-saham yang membayar dividen akan berterusan dan menyebabkan lebih banyak aliran pelaburan ke dalam saham-saham tersebut. Jurang perbezaan penilaian tidak boleh terlalu besar dan aliran modal pelaburan akan diperuntukkan bagi saham-saham lain termasuk saham-saham pertumbuhan dan kitaran. Secara amnya, persekitaran kadar faedah yang rendah dan pelonggaran kuantitatif dalam sesetengah negara telah menyebabkan kecairan yang mencukupi dan kecairan serta modal pelaburan perlu diedarkan. Oleh itu, pasaran saham akan dikekalkan dengan baik.”

Tambah Chi-cheun, “Buat masa kini, para pelabur sesuai melabur dalam saham-saham ekuiti untuk jangka masa panjang. Bank-bank pusat global dan serantau kekal dalam mod pelonggaran. Federal Reserve juga meningkatkan kadar faedah secara berhati-hati. Walaupun penilaian saham tidak murah di Malaysia, ia juga tidak terlalu tinggi. Mengikut rekod, Malaysia pernah berdagang pada nisbah harga perolehan yang lebih tinggi berbanding negara seperdagangan. Pada masa kini, nisbah antara harga dan perolehan saham-saham Indonesia hampir-hampir setaraf dengan tahap saham serantau dan nisbah saham-saham negara Thai tidak jauh di belakang. Untuk negara Malaysia pada masa kini, Pacific Mutual memilih sektor-sektor pembinaan, hartanah dan perladangan.”

“Antara risiko-risiko utama adalah keputusan pilihanraya Presidensi AS. Jika Trump dipilih sebagai Presiden, terdapat kemungkinan halangan dagangan antarabangsa. Sebagai sebuah ekonomi terbuka dengan hasil eksport yang besar, Malaysia akan terjejas secara negatif,” ujar Chi-cheun.

Dalam kenyataan yang sama, Pacific Mutual juga mengumumkan agihan pendapatan berjumlah RM11.13 juta untuk lima Dananya dengan tahun kewangan berakhir suku ketiga tahun 2016:

Pacific Premier Fund: 5.00 sen seunit
Pacific Income Fund: 1.00 sen seunit
Pacific Cash Fund: 0.40 sen seunit (agihan suku tahunan)
Pacific Islamic Cash Fund: 1.00 sen seunit (agihan suku tahunan)
Pacific Emerging Market Bond Fund: 1.05 sen seunit (agihan suku tahunan)

PACIFIC MUTUAL FUND BHD adalah anak syarikat Lion Global Investors Limited (dahulu dikenali sebagai Lion Capital Management Limited), sebuah syarikat yang diperbadankan di Singapura pada tahun 1986. Kedua-dua Pacific Mutual dan Lion Global Investors adalah ahli OCBC Group. Pada awal bulan Oktober 2016, Pacific Mutual mengurus hampir RM1.45 bilion bagi pihak pelabur unit amanahnya dan pelanggan mandat persendirian.
