Intraco's journey has been underpinned by a strong set of core values, the ability to adapt and sheer resilience. Over the years, we have established a long lasting brand reputation and solid regional network. We have also continuously repositioned our portfolio with the changes in macro and microeconomic environment, through the acquisition and disposal of businesses – all targeted to deliver long term shareholder returns. We will continue to do so in the coming years but with a more focused approach and clearly defined strategy. This year marks our 50th anniversary; we are building the foundation for the next 50 years. We are proud to be embarking on our aspiration of becoming one of Asia's leading publicly-listed investment management firms.
