Dividend history

No limit after 31 October 2023

After 31 October 2023, there will be no restriction on the maximum investment amount, but subject to the unit availability at the time of investment.

To invest or not?

It depends on you yourself. This fixed price fund is quite safe and the dividend rate is acceptable. Going forward, I think it will be able to provide at least 4% dividend yield, given the high interest environment now. However, if Bank Negara reduces the overnight policy rate, the dividend might decrease. Nonetheless, after 31 October 2023, we might need to wait for the chance to top up after the quota is used up.

I am treating this fixed price fund as my emergency fund. However, the withdrawal takes at least 1 – 2 working days, so I have also prepared other liquid fund for urgent situations.
