Be the first to review

For many Malaysians, the United Kingdom (UK) and Australia are the top 2 favourite countries when it comes to investment and migration. This comes as no surprise due to the historical and geographical tie with the two nations.

Being a member of the Commonwealth, Malaysia has maintained a close relationship with the UK even in the post-colonial era, boosting trade, tourism and cultural exchange. Despite the distance, many Malaysian seeks education in the UK, in one of many world-renowned institutions where influential leaders were educated.

Apart from education, tourism and migration, the UK has always been a sought-after property investment destination for an investor from all over the world. There are a number of Malaysian property developers building homes and commercial establishments in the UK, such as the much talked about Battersea Power Station by a conglomerate made up of S P Setia Berhad, Sime Darby, and Employees Provident Fund.
