The RHB-OSK Global Equity Stabiliser Fund intends to achieve this by investing in Singapore-domiciled Schroder Global Equity Stabiliser Fund, managed by Schroder Investment Management (Singapore).
“Besides the potential for capital growth and regular dividend income, the target fund [Schroder Global Equity Stabiliser Fund] possesses a ‘stabiliser mechanism’ that assists to reduce and limit losses during volatile global equities market conditions,” said Ho Seng Yee, chief executive and regional head of group retail distribution.
The RHB-OSK fund seeks to invest at least 95% of its assets in the Schroders fund. The Schroders fund intends to provide income and medium- to- long term capital growth by investing in a portfolio of high quality global equities with sustainable dividend payments while also systematically managing downside risk.
“With increasing volatility in the markets, an investor should consider a strategy that encompasses an equity theme with dividends, has low sensitivity to rising interest rates and a downside risk protection strategy like the ‘stabiliser mechanism’, that is systematic and straightforward,” Ho added.
The RHB-OSK Global Equity Stabiliser Fund is being distributed by RHB Bank, Citibank, Standard Chartered Bank, iFast Capital and CIMB Bank.
