Distribution PolicyDepending on the level of income (if any) that the Fund generates, the Class will distribute on a monthly basis. If the distribution available is too small or insignificant, any distribution may not be of benefit to you as the total cost to be incurred in any such distribution may be higher than the amount for distribution. We have the discretion to decide on the amount to be distributed to you.
Note: The Fund may distribute from realised income, realised capital gains, unrealised income, unrealised capital gains, capital or a combination of any of the above. We reserve the right to vary the frequency and/or amount of distributions.
Initial InvestmentMinimum RM 300 million or such other amount as the Manager may decide from time to time.
Additional InvestmentRM 10 million or such other amount as the Manager may decide from time to time.
Minimum WithdrawalRM 10 million or such other amount as the Manager may decide from time to time.

Switching will be conducted based on the value of your investments in the Class. The minimum amount for a switch is subject to:

for switching out of the Class:

  • the minimum withdrawal applicable to the Class;
  • the minimum balance required (after the switch) for the Class, unless you are withdrawing from the Class in entirety; and
  • the withdrawal penalty of the Class (if any).

for switching into a Class

  • the minimum initial investment amount or the minimum additional investment amount (as the case may be) applicable to the Class; and
  • the switching fee applicable for the proposed switch (if any).
