Switching Fees Switching is available between Class MYR and other Principal Funds (or its classes) which must be denominated in RM.

Switching Fee will not be charged if the class or fund to be switched into has a lower Application Fee. In addition, the Manager imposes a RM100 administrative fee for every switch made out of Principal Funds. The Manager also has the discretion to waive the Switching Fee and/or administrative fees.

Switching out from this Fund within three (3) months from the Commencement Date may, at the discretion of the Manager, be subject to the Withdrawal Fee. Thereafter, only the Switching Fee and/ or administrative fee will be charged.
