PUTRAJAYA – A total of 6.78 billion Amanah Saham Bumiputera 2 (ASB2) units, introduced in April last year, can still beÂ subscribed.
Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB) Chairman Tun Ahmad Sarji Abdul Hamid said ASB2, the 10th unit trust fund managed by PNB with a fund size of 10 billion units, could be subscribed by Bumiputera investors up to 200,000 units each.
“Amanah Saham PNB units are attractive as they have competitive income distribution rates, are easy to top up subscriptions, allow withdrawals to be made at any time, and subscribers are furnished with an annual report on investments,” he said at the PNB Investment Quiz (Uniform Units Category) prize-giving ceremony, here today.
Ahmad Sarji said PNB investors received RM132.74 billion in income distributions and bonuses from 1981 until October 2015.
“As for other fixed-price units, 286.31 million units of Amanah Saham Didik and 1.47 billion units of Amanah Saham 1Malaysia can still be subscribed,” he said.
On the PNB Investment Quiz (Uniform Units Category), the number of participants increased 46 per cent from last year to 27,160 this year.
“This is the highest number of participants recorded since the quiz began in 2003, bringing the total to 67,446 participants to date,” he said.
The Road Transport Department clinched the top spot in this year’s quiz, beating 11 other uniformed bodies and taking home cash prize of RM15,000. – BERNAMA
