Investment policy and strategy The Fund is an index fund which aims to track the movement of the FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI. The Fund’s indexing strategy is to hold a representative sample of the securities that make up its underlying index. Thus, the Fund normally invests at least 90% of its NAV in the index stocks representing the top 95%-98% of the index weights. As such, the Fund may invest up to 30 index stocks, being the representative index stocks of the FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI. The Fund may also utilize index futures to ensure it is fully invested at all times and to reduce transaction costs. The asset allocation strategy for this Fund is as follows:
  • up to 99.5% of the Fund will be invested in securities and other permissible investments; and
  • up to 28% of the Fund’s NAV in permissible investments; and
  • at least 0.5% in liquid assets.
