Hello, every Recomers members that are interest in this business investment world, Here is a sharing thread that can help u out when u plan to invest in Unit Trust.
Feel free to ask questions about investment in Unit Trust on this thread..

Public Mutual is one of the most successful unit trust companies in Asia. It won the Most Oustanding Islamic Fund Manager at the KL Islamic Finance Forum 2007 late last year. So there is no questions as to why I choose Public Mutual as my unit trust company. :

The first thing you would want to do when you want to open a unit trust investment account is to set a goal for the investment. The goal of investment will determine which type of investment you should choose either low risk, medium risk or high risk/aggressive. The duration of the investment also affects the choice of investment type.



As a Malaysian, i believe in marriage and one day whould like to have a family. But any married man will tell you building a family is not easy....and surely not cheap.



But starting to save up early would help A LOT in one's future plans. And what better way to save up money than to invest in unit trust. It's saving and multiplying money at the same time.

Public mutual has a wide range of Islamic and commercial funds such as Public Savings Fund, Public Ittikal Fund, Public Growth fund and so on. But how do you know which fund is suitable for you?



First we have to make sure what our goals are for the investment, in my case as a preparation to build a family particularly when I get children.



Since I know that I won't be having any children in the near future, at least not in the next 4/5 years or so,


I know that Im looking for a long term fund. I also take into account the level of risk I am willing to take. I consider myself a risk taker and I am willing to take a little more risk to gain more profit.



Once I have my parameters, it is time to look for the suitable fund. The best thing about Public Mutual is their website has a full list of offered funds and their details and probobly what sets it aside from other unit trust companies is that it has a Fund Performance Chart where you can check the value of you fund or the performance history of the fund you are interested to invest in. It is from this chart you can know how much growth the fund has undergone up till now.

For me, investing in unit trust is like entrusting your hard earned money to those professional to manage your fund and investment. It's not really an investment.

If his plan works, both side would be happy since both would gain profit from it...

If his plan turns out to be failure, you would be the only one who experiences depression, he won't feel really down since what he have lost is just OPM ( other people's money ).

So, learn to invest yourself!

I am interested in investing. Do you have the Public Mutual website?

Do you have other unit trust company's information?

How to start the investment?

ASB is so good already what more can you ask for?

There are millions of non Bumi out there who want to put money into ASB but couldn't because of the quota. You have got to understand the good you have.
