Why invest with Unit Trust?

Why invest with Unit Trust? 
  • They are well-diversified: Unit trusts spread the risks involved in investing because they invest in a variety of financial instruments, including stocks, bonds, properties, commodities, currencies and cash.
  • They are professionally managed: Unit trusts are managed by professional fund managers. Their job is to monitor your investments and make necessary investment decisions based on research and analysis in order to generate a good return.
  • You can invest all over the world: Unit trusts are invested all over the world and in various business sectors. This way, you have a lot more opportunities. Think China might boom? Interested in property stocks? Unit trusts pick out the best companies in these sectors for you.
  • You only need a small amount of investment to start with: You can begin with a Regular Savings Plan (RSP), where you instruct us to automatically deduct a certain amount, which can go as low as RM100 from the cash account to make unit trust purchases at regular intervals. With unit trusts, a small sum buys you into a well-diversified portfolio.
  • Buying and redeeming is simple: Most unit trusts in Malaysia allow daily buying and selling of units. As long as we receive your orders by the day's trading cut-off time, you can be assured that your purchases or redemptions will be transacted at that day's prevailing price.
  • It is relatively safe: If you have a low tolerance for risk, you can choose a fixed income fund that can give stable returns. Generally, over the medium to long term, it will likely perform better than your fixed deposits.
