The rise of the COVID-19 cases and the implementation of variations of the Movement Control Order (MCO) has led to plenty of uncertainty for all Malaysians. Coupled with work from home orders from most organisations, Malaysians have spent a large chunk of their time at home, since the very first MCO that was introduced in March 2020. While there are several negative impacts of the COVID-19, Malaysians have become more aware of the need to relook at their financial plans and seek out areas of investment that serve as a financial reserve during these times.
“The pandemic has done no favours for the economy. However, there is hope. Malaysian consumers remain relatively optimistic about the economic recovery post COVID-19 and are looking to boost their investment portfolios. For us at Mudah.my, this is where we have a major role to play as Malaysia’s largest marketplace. We are always looking for opportunities to help equip consumers with the right tools and knowledge to make better purchasing decisions. This then allows Malaysians to come together to boost the economy and to help revive the source of income for many businesses,” said Andrew, Head of Marketing of Mudah.my.
