Sovereign wealth fund Khazanah Nasional Bhd is establishing an equities trading desk as part of a measure to deliver higher dividend income, say sources close to the matter.

It is believed that Datuk Hisham Hamdan will be in charge of the unit but details are scant as to logistics and operations.

According to the Khazanah website, Hisham is currently the fund’s executive director, head of public markets and head of research. Prior to joining Khazanah in 2011, he served in Sime Darby Bhd and UDA Holdings Bhd.
