Savvy investor may be looking at institutional partner in his long running bid for PM Securities

LOW-PROFILE businessman Datuk Dr Yu Kuan Chon may have had some spectacular wins in the corporate world with his stock picks, but for more than two years, he’s been trying to secure a deal which would pave the way for him to build his own stockbroking company. Alas, that plan has been hitting a brick wall.

Sources say that Dr Yu is very keen on building the stockbroking business of PM Securities, banking on the fact that in the long run, the local market would have a higher retail participation.
