For those who invested in equity fund this year are “seeing” handsome return by now. I said you are only “seeing” it because return is only real if it is locked. Switching funds, or rebalance your portfolio will help you to realize some gains.

Public Mutual launched several equity funds these year and all those funds are performing very well. Particularly those funds that are exposed to China market are giving outstanding return. Thanks to the China stock boom.

        Hi Bernese,

        Some banks provide internet banking service that allow you to purchase unit trust funds. I’ve done it before using Public Bank internet banking, but the service charges is still the same (6.5%).

        As far as I know, we still couldn’t skip the agent route at this time.

      Hi! I’m new investor here. Anyone know where I can get the launching price for each public mutual unit trust?

    • Mark McGuire

      I am curious about two things here,

      Are these Malaysian based funds?

      Are these returns pegged to the American dollar?

      (I don’t know much about Malaysian currency but am learning.)

        Hi Mark,

        Yes. These are unit trust fund in Malaysia. All returns are calculated in Ringgit Malaysia.
