  1. BIMB i Growth MARCH 2018 (ALL DATA AS AT 28 FEBRUARY 2018 UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED) INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE To provide a medium and long term return through capital appreciation and income distribution. 13.18 FUND INFORMATION VERY HIGH Type of Fund Investor Risk Profile Financial Year End Launch Date Current Fund Size 15 Feb 2018 1 Consistent Return 1 Preservation 2 Lipper Leaders Highest Total Return 5 4 3 2 Aggressive Growth High 30 June 30 June 1994 NAV (RM) Units 37,703,397.19 98,077,430.95 FEES & CHARGES 1 Lowest FUND MANAGER’S REVIEW The FBMS Index was down by 1.69% in February due to negative sentiment in the market in relation to Dow Jone Industrial Average Index’s sharp decline on Wall Street during the month. As a result, the Fund’s NAV was down by 3.95% on a 1 month basis and underperformed the benchmark during the period under review driven by weakness in share price of export related counters and other local stocks. The negative sentiment post of the Federal Reserve announcement of multiple rate hikes had sustained into the month of February. Newly appointed Federal Reserve Chairman, Jerome Powell foresees multiple rate hikes are in line with the strong US economic growth, notwithstanding financial volatility that had arisen, should not hamper US economic growth. Technically, the multiple rate hike approach are in-line with the Fund’s which remains to overweight on export related sectors. As a result, the Fund will continue to be invested at 98% level underpinned by the hawkish US Federal Reserve stance for 2018.
