As a beginner, I was told by my friend (he is a certified financial planner) that unit trust is a good key to ignite the investment engine. I am young and have a small capital, only can dig out a little money from my salary.
The fund that I invest is Public China Ittikal Fund (Shariah Fund). The main objective of this fund I guess is to achieve profit by investing in greater China region. The 1.5 billion approved funds investment is in Hong Kong, Taiwan and other major market around China. PCIF is an aggressive type of fund. What I understand about aggressive fund is it involves great risk that you can get losses very easy, but it will bring significant profit if the price goes up.
Why I choose PCIF?
PCIF is managed by one of the best fund manager in Malaysia. This is main reason why I invest in Public Mutual. Brilliant and good making decision of fund manager builds a confidence in me. I don’t have to worry about my investment because fund manager is doing the best effort to put the pooling fund
China’s rise to superpower. China economy is growing rapidly and experiencing vast changes in its economy. With Olympic 2008 event will occur in Beijing, We’ll be expecting travellers and tourists visit in and a lot of money pour in.
Affordability at it’s best. I can buy a high quality unit trust at cheap and affordable price. PCIF only require RM 1000 for minimum initial investment and minimum RM100 for additional investment. So there’s no rock and stone for me to invest, just an easy straight path to it.
PCIF is easy to take out money. Liquidity is quite high because I can withdraw my money anytime I want. Just fill out the form or phone my agent to sell off my shares. This fund can act as an emergency fund so when it comes to any uncertainties that cost me money, I know where to find it.
PCIF offers diversification. This is what I love about unit trust. It gives you lower risk by widening their investment from shares to bond. While it gives you low risk, PCIF offers me well-balanced portfolio that is high quality and performance, the risk is small and the return is highly potential.
Public Mutual is the number one unit trust company in Malaysia. Until now, there’s no other financial institution can competes with Public Mutual performance and credibility. Public Mutual managing about RM 20.6 billion worth of funds.
