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.

Malaysians who have the spare income can consider investing in property. Findings from a recent survey carried out by InsightzClub, entitled Project BREW, involved over 600 participants aged 21 and above, focusing on consumers who browse, buy and sell from online platforms.
