"High" includes funds with VF that are above 7.795 but not more than 10.615. 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. We recommend that you read and understand the contents of the Master Prospectus (Shariah-Compliant Funds) Issue No. 10 dated 30 June 2017, which has been duly registered with the Securities Commission Malaysia, before investing and that you keep the said Master Prospectus (Shariah-Compliant Funds) for your records.

Unit prices and income distributions, if any, may fall or rise. Past performance is not reflective of future performance and income distributions are not guaranteed. You are also advised to read and understand the contents of the Financing for Investment in Unit Trust Risk Disclosure Statement before deciding to obtain financing to purchase units. Where a unit split/distribution is declared, you are advised that following the issue of additional units/distribution, the NAV per unit will be reduced from pre-unit split NAV/cum-distribution NAV to post-unit split NAV/ex-distribution NAV; and where a unit split is declared, the value of your investment in Malaysian ringgit will remain unchanged after the distribution of the additional units.

  2. 28 February 2018 CIMB Islamic Al-Azzam Equity Fund A S S E T MA N A GE ME N T Available under the EPF Members Investment Scheme . FUND MANAGER'S REPORT PORTFOLIO ANALYSIS The Fund fell 1.72% in February 2018, marginally underperforming the benchmark by 0.03%. At the stock level, the underperformance was due to Pos Malaysia, Kerjaya Prospek and Malaysian Resources Corp. On a year-to-date basis, the Fund is up 1.10%, outperforming the benchmark by 0.16%. ASSET ALLOCATION Shariah-compliant Equities (Local) 94.09% Cash 5.91% 100.00% Total February was a volatile month as investors began re-pricing more interest rate hikes in the United States, earlier than expected, on the back of higher inflation expectations. In line with the global rout, the FTSE Bursa Malaysia EMAS Shariah Index (FBMS) corrected 230.54 pts or 1.69% to 13,427.51 pts. The FBMS had fallen sharply from a high of 13,651 pts (February 2) to a low of 13,214 pts (February 6), before recouping part its losses by month end. In February, foreign investors net sold c. RM1.1bn bringing year-to-date net inflows to RM2.2bn. SECTOR BREAKDOWN We remain optimistic on the Malaysian market. Market will remain volatile as investors digest the recent corporate earnings, monitor inflation expectations and watch global central banks dial back their balance sheets, while waiting for our own 14th General Elections (GE14) to be called. While markets may correct, we are of the view that these corrections are not the start of a bear market. Hence, we will stay invested, but continue to trim portfolio risk by reducing exposure to stocks which have risen exponentially as we approach GE14. These include selective Construction stocks, as well as some politically-linked names. We will rotate into more liquid large cap names to raise portfolio liquidity. We continue to like Tourism and Industrials. We have also lowered our exposure to selective e-commerce/logistics names.
