About Us

KiniBiz goes beyond the spin and the hype to smash through existing barriers with independent, fast, and incisive business and economics news to discerning readers.

We break news, analyse it, dissect the complexities and comment unflinchingly. We unravel and reveal the players behind the scenes and put things in the right context. We shed some light.

We feel there is a gap to be filled in the coverage of business news and we aim to fill that gap. It would take effort and it would be a different kind of editorial stance from what we have seen before in the coverage of Malaysian business news.

KiniBiz is a complete portal for business news which means that we closely follow foreign business news as well, especially those which have a major impact on the average citizen and this region. We carefully select the news, analysis and commentary here, too.

We need a steady stream of income to be able to provide this – not much but enough. Unfortunately in online news, advertising alone won’t do it. Which is why we have opted for paid subscription after a short period of free trial. It is likely to be less than a ringgit a day. Also, without undue dependence on advertising we can afford to be more independent.

KiniBiz is jointly owned by Malaysiakini – whose founders and major shareholders are Steven Gan and Premesh Chandran – and journalist P Gunasegaram.
