Congratulations to all the Fund Houses who won the Edge | Thomson Reuters Lipper Fund Awards 2017 yesterday.
“A new category – the Malaysia Provident Fund universe – was introduced this year to acknowledge the best performing Employees Provident Fund-approved funds. Of the 56 individual awards given out, 28 were for this category, 16 for the Islamic category and 12 for the conventional category.”
Please be reminded that these lists are just good info and cannot be used as a tool to influence your decision to invest in a unit trust fund. Please be advised that you still need to do your due diligence by reading the Fund Prospectuses and learn up the basics about Unit Trust investment.
Why are the awards looking at funds for 3 years, 5 years and 10 years? Unit trust investment is designed to be a medium to long term investment horizon. As an investor, the funds that we choose to invest in should at least align and match our Financial Objectives and Risk Tolerance.
Talk to me or any other consultants that you trust about how to have a Diversified Portfolio Investment. Remember it is always a good practice to not ‘Put All Eggs in One Basket’.

For more than three decades and in over 20 countries worldwide, the Thomson Reuters Lipper Fund Awards have honored funds and fund management firms that have excelled in providing consistently strong risk-adjusted performance relative to their peers.
Renowned fund data and proprietary methodology is the foundation of the Award qualification. Individual classifications of three-, five-, and ten-year periods, as well as fund families with high average scores for the three-year period are recognized.
