NEW 2019/2020 List of EPF Approved Funds. Does your fund being SUSPENDED ???

Last week, EPF has published its Annual Qualifying List of Fund Management Institutions (FMIs) and unit trust funds under the EPF Members Investment Scheme (EPF MIS) effective 1 March 2019 until 29 February 2020.

For the 2019/2020 period, a total of 382 funds were approved under the EPF MIS, nonetheless only 282 funds, including 9 new funds, from 19 FMIs qualified for offering. This is a marginal increase of 0.7 per cent from the same period last year.

The list of unit trust funds offered under the EPF MIS is evaluated annually based on criteria established by the EPF and approved by the Ministry of Finance Malaysia. Any unit trust fund which falls below the minimum eligibility score will be suspended from offering during the period.

Instead of posting the approved fund list, Finance Malaysia would like to only highlight those suspended funds from some popular fund houses (not all) for your information as below:

Why use Touch'nGo eWallet (not the physical card) ???

Instead of holding the normal Touch'nGo (TNG) card we're using currently, we can opt for the mobile version of it via a new app called Touch'nGo eWallet. However, at this current juncture, you CANNOT reload your TNG card with the app. Don't be angry first. Let's give them sometime to sort things out.


Anyway, you can view your TNG card balance and last 5 transactions real-time via the eWallet app. That's pretty good though!
