LIPPER LEADERS RATING (OVERALL) Total Return Consistent Return Preservation 4 4 3 Lipper Leaders Key Lowest Highest 1 5 The Lipper Leaders Ratings System is a set of tools that guide investors and their advisors to select funds that suit individual investment styles and goals. It uses investors-centred criteria to deliver a simple, clear description of a fund's success in meeting certain goals, such as preserving capital or building wealth through consistent strong returns. Lipper Leader ratings are derived from highly sophisticated formulas that analyse funds against clearly defined criteria. Each fund is ranked against its peers based on the metric used ( such as Total Return or Expense), and then the top 20% of funds in that ranking receive the Lipper Leader designation. Lipper Leaders measures are not predictive of future performance, but they do provide context and perspective for making knowledgeable fund investment decisions.
  2. DANA DINAMIK APRIL 2019 ALL DATA AS AT 31 MARCH 2019 UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED FUND MANAGER ’S COMMENTARY Equity: Emerging markets generally had a positive month of March, on the back of a more than expected dovish US Federal Reserve, positive news around trade talks and China’s fresh stimulus measures. The Malaysian equity market however, was one of the worst performers in the region, with the FBM Emas Shariah Index declining 0.38% mom in March to close at 11,688 points, down 44 points. The market weakness comes after the Invest Malaysia event held on 19-20 March, and amidst the risk to earnings for banks due to a possible rate cut, slower corporate earnings growth prospects and policy uncertainty. Foreign investors were net sellers of equity of RM1.6b in March, bringing 1Q2019 net foreign outflow of RM1.4bn. The FBM Small Cap Shariah index gained 2.03% for the month. The best performing sectors were Energy (+7.1%) and Construction (+6.85%). News flow on the revival of the East Coast Rail Line has spurred interest in the construction sector again. The worst performing sectors were Finance (-4.63%) and Transport (-2.2%). Stocks with exposure to Turkey were sold down due to the post elections turmoil which saw the Lira depreciating again. Average value traded on Bursa in March was RM 2,995m higher by 55% mom in March (included the crossing of IHH shares between Khazanah and Mitsui & Co.) Fixed Income: In the US, the Federal Open Market Committee (“FOMC”) kept rates unchanged in the range of 2.25%-2.50% during March’s as expected. However, the US Federal Reserve (“Fed”) turned more dovish as the Fed lowered its median assessment on the Federal Fund Rate to no hike in FY2019 from two hikes previously. The Fed acknowledged that the labor market remains strong, but that growth of economic activity has slowed from its solid rate in the fourth quarter. On the domestic front, the third Monetary Policy Committee (“MPC”) meeting for 2019 will be held on 7 May. In March, Bank Negara left the Overnight Policy Rate unchanged at 3.25% but caution on the unresolved global trade tension which may impact domestic growth. We expect BNM to monitor the domestic and global economy further before making any changes to its monetary policy stance. In April, there will be three MYR government bond auction and a maturity of around RM10billion of MGII. Sovereign bonds yields are expected to remain volatile given the global economic uncertainties while investors continue their search for yields. Corporate bond market is expected to see a continuous supply in the April as yields have decreased over the past three months which is favorable for issuers . .
