Important Risk Warning
- Unit Trusts are investment products and some may involve derivatives. The value of investments, unit prices and income distribution may go down or up, and the investor may not get back the original sum invested. Past performance of a fund should not be taken as indicative of its future performance. In a worst case scenario, the value of fund may worth substantially less than the original amount you have invested (and in an extreme case could be worth nothing).
- The investment returns, repayment of capital and distribution payouts are not guaranteed. Investors and potential investors must not solely rely on the content in this website to make investment decisions. Investors are advised to read carefully and understand the contents of prospectus and consider the general risk factors associated with investing in unit trusts in addition to other specific risks uniquely associated with the fund. All the relevant risk factors are set out in the relevant prospectus for the fund.
- Before you make any investment decision, you may wish to engage or speak to your relationship manager to understand more about any investment product. You are advised to carefully consider whether the investment product is suitable for you.
- Unit Trusts are NOT protected by Perbadanan Insurans Deposit Malaysia (“PIDM”).
What are Unit Trusts?
Unit trusts pool the resources of investors into one large fund, which is then divided into shares, or ‘units’. Unit trusts are managed by professional fund managers and have varying levels of risk and return.
