Investment Objective

The Fund aims to provide investment results that closely correspond to the performance of the Benchmark Index, regardless of its performance.

The Benchmark Index is the FTSE China 50 Index or such replacement index as may be determined by the Manager, subject to the approval of the Securities Commission of Malaysia.

An Introduction to the Benchmark Index

The Benchmark Index is designed to represent the performance of the stocks of the Mainland Chinese market that are available to international investors. The Benchmark Index consists of the 50 largest and most liquid Chinese stocks (Red Chips, H shares and P Chips) listed and traded on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKSE).

  • H shares – Securities of companies incorporated in the People’s Republic of China ("PRC") and nominated by the Central Government for listing and trading on the HKSE.
  • Red Chips – Red Chip companies are incorporated outside of the PRC  that trade on the HKSE. A Red Chip is a company that has at least 30 percent of its shares in aggregate held  directly or indirectly by Mainland China state entities, and has at least 50 percent  of their sales revenue or operating assets derived from Mainland China.
  • P Chips- P Chip companies are incorporated outside of the PRC and traded on the HKSE. A P Chip is a company that is controlled by the Mainland Chinese individuals with its establishment and origin of the company in the PRC. The company has at least 50 percent of its revenue or assets to be derived from the Mainland China.
