Khazanah sells 40 million BDO Unibank shares

Back in 2014,  Khazanah Nasional Bhd made its entry into Phillippines with the buying of BDO Unibank Inc’s stake, in the hopes that the entry will further strengthen BDO’s institutional shareholder base and affirms the attractiveness of the Philippines as an investment destination.

SM, owned by the Philippines’ richest man, Henry Sy, said in a statement on Tuesday the transaction involved its unit, Multi-Realty Development Corp, selling 2 percent of BDO’s total common shares to Pulau Kaca Investments Ltd, a Khazanah unit.
