ASM Investment Services Bhd had recently launched its latest fund called "ASM Syariah Capital Protected Sector Linked Fund". It is a close-ended fund with limited subscription period and a maturity of 3 years.
For this Fund, it aim to provide investors with capital protection upon the maturity of the Fund as well as to give investors potential returns higher than the rate of return of the 12-month Kuala Lumpur Islamic Reference Rates (KLIRR), being the selected Fund’s performance benchmark.

To achieve the capital protection objective, the Fund will invest not less than 88% of the Fund’s Net Asset Value (NAV) in 3-year Islamic Negotiable Instruments of Deposits (INIDs) issued by several premier financial institutions in Malaysia. This will potentially protect investors capital, including a sales charge payable by investors.
To realize the potential return objective, the fund will invest up to 12% of the Fund’s NAV in quality Shariah-compliant equities of various sectors in Bursa Malaysia. These equities have been identified as the leaders of their respective sectors under the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP). The Fund’s name thereby reflects the composition of the Fund’s portfolio consisting of INIDs and each sector’s leading equities.
