Investment Objective The Fund seeks to achieve medium to long term capital appreciation.

“medium to long term” in this context refers to 3 years or more.
Any material change to the investment objective of the Fund would require Unit Holders’ approvals. 
Investment policy and strategy The Fund will invest in listed equities (up to 98% of the Fund„s NAV) of which 70% of the portfolio is allocated to companies in Malaysia and 30% to foreign companies where the regulatory authorities are the ordinary or
associate members of the International Organization of Securities Commission (IOSCO). The investment composition of Malaysia's companies and foreign companies is not restricted to the ratio 70:30 as the composition may change according to the market condition.

The Fund invests through a rules-based investment process into listed companies that are compliant with the principles of the United Nations Global Compact, and Shariah compliant according to the SAC and AAOIFI rulebooks. The Fund is not actively managed as it employs quantitative approach which will be rebalanced/traded monthly for the Malaysian and foreign securities of the Fund.
The Manager may take temporary defensive positions that may be inconsistent with the Fund‟s principal strategy in attempting to respond to adverse market conditions to protect the Unit Holders‟ interest. During the temporary defensive position, the Fund may hold higher liquid asset or cash portion. 
Asset allocation • Up to 98% of the Fund‟s NAV will be invested in Shariah-ESG compliant Malaysia and foreign equities where the regulatory authorities are the ordinary or associate members of the International Organization of Securities Commission (IOSCO); and
• At least 2% of the Fund‟s NAV in Islamic deposits and Islamic money market instruments.
Benchmark 70:30 ratio of FBM KLCI Index and MSCI All Countries World Index.
