Investment Objective

The principal investment objective of the Fund is to provide a steady and consistent income and capital appreciation of the Units over the medium to long-term period. Accordingly, returns shall be in the form of long-term capital growth and regular income distribution to the Unit Holders.

Note:
Any material change to the investment objective of the Fund would require Unit Holders’ approvals.

Investment Policy and Strategy

To meet the investment objective, the Fund will focus on well-established blue chip companies that could potentially pay sustainable dividends and achieve earnings growth. The Fund may also invest in small and medium-sized companies that could potentially embark on dividend payments. These investments are to provide high income-flow to the Fund for potential income distribution to Unit Holders.

Meanwhile, the investments in Sukuk are particularly for the purpose of generating the recurring income from expected regular profit payment. The investment in Sukuk must have a minimum AA3 rating by RAM or AA rating by MARC or equivalent rating rated by any recognised credit rating agency.

Asset Allocation

  • Equity: 40% – 60%
  • Sukuk & cash: 40% – 60%
The Manager may, in response to adverse market, economic, political and any other conditions, adopt a temporary defensive strategy by maintaining higher liquid asset/cash portions. When this happens, the asset allocation of the Fund will be altered accordingly.
