  1. BIMB Invest Money Market Fund MARCH 2018 (ALL DATA AS AT 28 FEBRUARY 2018 UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED) INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE 0.06 VERY LOW 15 Feb 2018 FUND MANAGER’S REVIEW The Fund’s performance for the month was 0.26% and outperformed its benchmark by 0.07%. The money market rate for overnight is 2.95% per annum and the 1 month rate is within 3.20% to 3.30% per annum. The 3 months to 12 months rates are within 3.85% to 3.98% per annum. Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) raised the Overnight Policy Rate (OPR) by 25bps to 3.25% in its January 2018 MPC meeting. The statement said that “at current level of OPR, the stance of monetary policy remains accommodative”. It is expected that BNM will maintain the OPR until year-end. BNM kept an optimistic view on global growth and the domestic economy. Inflation is expected to moderate on expectations of a smaller effect from global cost factors while a stronger Ringgit compared to 2017 will help mitigate import costs. As the Fund’s focus is on capital preservation and liquidity, we will continue to invest in money market placements and short term Sukuk papers with good credit standing and attractive yield level and extend the portfolio duration for yield enhancement. The Fund seeks to provide liquidity and current income, while maintaining capital stability by investing in instruments that comply with Shariah requirements.

Based on the Fund's portfolio returns as at 15 Feb 2018, the Volatility Factor (VF) for this Fund is 0.06 and is classified as "Very Low". The VF means there is a possibility for the Fund in generating an upside return or downside return around this VF. The Volatility Class (VC) is assigned by Lipper based on quintile ranks of VF for qualified Funds. VF is subject to monthly revision and VC will be revised every six months. The Fund's portfolio may have changed since this date and there is no guarantee that the Fund will continue to have the same VF or VC in the future. Presently, only Funds launched in the market for at least 36 months will display the VF and its VC. Lipper Ratings for Total Return reflect fund historic total return performance relative to peers. Lipper Ratings for Consistent Return reflect fund historical riskadjusted returns relative to peers. Lipper Ratings for Preservation are relative, rather than absolute.
