A unit trust (or fund) is made up of money pooled from multiple investors and invested in a variety of assets to meet an investment objective. Investors own units which represent a part of the unit trust’s portfolio holdings. A fund can invest in securities such as stocks, bonds and/or other instruments. In Malaysia , a unit trust may also be referred to as a collective investment scheme (CIS).

As with any investment, there will be associated investment risks involved, depending on the type of investment you choose. There is a possibility that you may lose part or all of the amount you have invested. You can also speak to our relationship managers to find out how investing in unit trusts can benefit your portfolio.

You can begin investing through our Unit Trust Platform for greater convenience, anytime and anywhere. Alternatively, speak to our Relationship Managers at any of our branches.

The minimum investment amount for unit trusts varies. Some of them require a minimum investment of  as low as MYR100.

With our RSP, you commit to investing a fixed amount of money on a regular monthly basis, on a recurring schedule, into a fund of your choice. In addition to being a disciplined approach to investing, a RSP allows you to enjoy the benefits of Dollar Cost Averaging as you build up your investment position. If you wish to invest in a systematic and disciplined way, you can set up a Regular Savings Plan (“RSP”) in the Online Unit Trust platform by your own.

The monthly minimum investment amount needed to set up a RSP with us is MYR100, this amount may be higher depending on each fund’s minimum regular savings plan amount. Please refer to the minimum RSP amount set out in the relevant fund prospectus, as the minimum amount varies from fund to fund. Please also note that you will still need to fulfil the fund’s minimum initial investment amount prior to RSP set up. There is no minimum period that you have to invest for RSP.

You must be minimum age of 18 and need to have the following:

1. An active Unit Trust Investment Service Account (“ISA”) with the Bank.

2. A valid settlement account in the denominated currency of the Unit Trust you wish to invest into.

3. Valid Customer Investment Profile (“CIP”) where you have assessed to have knowledge and experience in transacting Unit Trust. Having a “Customer Investment Profile” will be a prerequisite for investors and for us to assess suitability of all investment.

Note:

. CIP can be completed in SC Mobile App > side menu > Investing > Investment Profile.

. For new user, ISA will be auto-created after submitting the first subscription in Online Unit Trust platform.

If any assistance required, visit our branches to speak to our Relationship Managers.

Knowing the investment risks associated with each investment is important. When you invest in a unit trust, you should receive a factsheet and prospectus which details the risks involved. Some examples are (non-exhaustive):

 

Investment Risk – As with any investment, your investment value and dividends may go up, down or even be completely lost in extreme cases.

 

Foreign Exchange Risk – You should be aware that your investments can be negatively affected by foreign exchange risk if you hold unit trusts/ funds that invest in assets denominated in foreign currencies.

 

Potential Risks of Hedge Funds or Alternative Funds – These funds differ from traditional unit trusts in that they can undertake more risky investment strategies than traditional fund managers e.g. they may borrow to invest which can magnify potential losses.

 

Potential Risks of Derivatives (if applicable) – Unit trusts which invest in derivatives may have higher volatility. An investment in derivatives may result in losses that are greater than the principal amount invested. Derivatives are also subject to a number of risks including but not limited to liquidity, interest rate, market, counterparty and credit risk. It is important that you fully understand the nature and risk exposure before investing in derivatives.

Sales Charges

These are charges which are deducted from the subscription amount and paid to the distributor.

 

Switching Fees

Some unit trusts providers allow investors to switch internally to another unit trust from the same umbrella and a switching fee will apply.

 

Recurring Fees

Annual management fees and other administrative fees will be charged by the fund house. While you do not pay these fees out of your own pocket, they are paid for by the unit trust and incorporated into the fund price, which will reduce the return that you get.
