KUALA LUMPUR: Affin Hwang Asset Management Bhd (Affin Hwang AM) has launched Affin Hwang Aiiman Global Thematic Mixed Asset Fund.

In a statement, it said the Fund is a Shariah-compliant retail fund that provides investors access to thematic opportunities through a multi-asset approach including global equities and sukuk.

The fund will invest a minimum of 30% and a maximum of 80% of the fund’s net asset value (NAV) in Shariah-compliant equities, as well as a minimum of 20% and a maximum of 60% of the fund’s NAV in sukuk.

It also has the flexibility to invest a maximum of 20% of its NAV in Islamic deposits and Islamic money market instruments as well as a maximum of 15% of the fund’s NAV in Shariah-compliant warrants and lastly an allowance to participate with a maximum of 10% of its NAV in Islamic structured products.

“Many thematic funds today tend to lack diversification as their holdings are often concentrated in a single sector which can lead to more volatility.

“Our newly launched Fund is designed to solve this quandary for investors who want to capture the potential of thematic opportunities, but at the same time still manage downside risks in their portfolios,” chief marketing and distribution officer Chan Ai Mei said.

“Through a flexible asset allocation strategy, the fund scours the best ideas across multiple themes and asset classes to deliver a smoother path of return for investors and combat volatile times that we’re seeing.

“By not being bounded to any geographical or sector limits as well, the fund is able to dynamically allocate between different key megatrends such as technological innovation, sustainability as well as changing demographics and lifestyles that will transform the way the world works,” she added.

Managed externally by Affin Hwang AM’s wholly-owned Islamic fund management arm AIIMAN Asset Management, the fund also benefits from the combined expertise of Schroders Investment Management which acts as its Investment Advisor.

The fund is suitable for retail investors who seek moderate capital growth and have a medium to long-term investment horizon. The base currency of the fund is in US dollar.

It is offered in four currency classes, namely, MYR hedged class, USD Class, SGD hedged class and AUD hedged class. The minimum investment amount is $1000 for all listed currency classes.
