  2. 28 February 2018 CIMB Islamic Balanced Growth 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 1.06% in February 2018 , underperforming the benchmark by 0.13%. The Fund's underperformance was mainly driven by Equities, which was dragged down by its exposure in Industrials. Stock-wise, key detractors were Pos Malaysia, IJM Corp and Taliworks. In the MYR fixed income space, Sovereign Sukuk yields rose marginally by 2–10bps across the curve as interest rate investors globally were concerned about higher than expected US rate hikes. As a result, MYR Sovereign Sukuk underperformed MYR Sukuk for the second consecutive month. Year-to-date, the Fund is down 0.09%, underperforming the benchmark by 0.85%. ASSET ALLOCATION Equities (Local) 55.13% Sukuk 38.10% Preferred Stock 0.02% Cash 6.75% 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. SECTOR BREAKDOWN 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 markets may correct, we think 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. We will rotate into more liquid large cap names to raise portfolio liquidity. For MYR Sukuk, we maintain our preference in corporate Sukuk for stable and higher expected total return but will tactically participate in Sovereign Sukuk for short-term trading purpose when yields are attractive and with better liquidity. Our pick on corporate Sukuk is on AA-rated segment as there are fewer supply compared to government guaranteed Sukuk. We maintain our neutral call on duration for now.
