Perbadanan Insurans Deposit Malaysia (PIDM) is currently organizing the Malaysia Financial Exhibition 2007 (MYFex 2007) at Mid Valley Exhibition Centre, Hall 3 starting from today (30 October) to 4 November. The exhibition itself advertised itself as a one-stop centre to
create financial awareness among the public. It's a one-stop information center for anyone to get answers to their financial inquiries and also update themselves on how to improve their personal finance.
Out of curiousity I have attended the event today and it seemed that the main focus of the exhibition is the "financing" part of personal finance: at least that's my sight-seeing evaluation of noticing most brochures being laid out were about loans of some form. For one thing, judging from the exhibitor list which were mostly banks, I'm not surprised. But the target group doesn't seemed to be aimed at working individuals but also budding entrepreneurs and SME holders. There's no booths that was focused on investments (read: unit trust) and insurance products, but there is one booth that answers taxation inquiries set up by the Inland Revenue Board and another booth on certified finance planners.
So for those who have inquiries regarding financing needs, this is a good exhibition for you to shop around and ask questions. After all, having all major Malaysian banks representatives being gathered in one hall, that certainly make gathering information easier, isn't it? :)
