There have been recent economic "recoveries" globally, but are they sustainable? And if the global financial crisis of ‘07/'08 is behind us, what should your investment strategy be? Should you continue buying stock or take profit at market highs and temporarily avoid equities? Should you buy gold fearing inflation, or is deflation the real threat? Should you invest in ETFs with the new EPF Investment Scheme or let professionals handle your retirement money?

All these and more will be addressed and discussed at our Maybank IB-Bursa Market Chat 2009 Roadshow. As part of the Bursa Malaysia initiative to keep investors informed of the financial markets, Maybank IB has assembled a panel of leading industry experts to help you with these crucial questions.
