New Fund: AmConstant Multi Maturity

AmConstant Multi Maturity is a close-ended bond fund that seeks to provide regular income from 3 investment portfolios comprising of local and/or foreign bonds. These investment portfolios will mature respectively on the 3rd, 4th, and 5th anniversary of the commencement date and scheduled Capital Repayment(s) will be made to the unitholders following the respective anniversary.

 
The fund intends to invest a minimum of 95% in a multitude of local and/or foreign bonds carrying a minimum "A" rating by RAM or MARC equivalent to "BBB" by S&P or Moody.

As this is a close ended bond fund, the fund adopts a buy and hold strategy whereby bonds purchased will be held until its respective maturity. At the maturity of these bonds, issuers of bonds held by the fund will be obligated to pay the face value provided there is no occurrence of credit default by issuer.

A downgrade in credit rating may result in additional credit risk assumed by the fund. The manager may choose to liquidate the bond prior to its maturity, if it is of an opinion for the benefit of the fund. By doing so, the manager may be subjecting the fund to a risk of capital loss, hence affecting the value of scheduled capital repayments.

AmConstant Multi Maturity is suitable for investors seeking:
  • An investment that provides capital repayment on the 3rd, 4th and 5th anniversary
  • An investment that targets to distribute regular income
  • Potentially higher returns than fixed deposits
  • To participate in a scheme that provides lower risk than equities
