  2. ADVERTISEMENT ISLAMIC EQUITY INCOME FUND JUNE 2022 ALL DATA AS AT 31 MAY 2022 UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED FUND MANAGER ’S COMMENTARY Malaysian equity markets closed lower May amid concerns over inflation and potential rate hikes, despite a month end rally driven by the MSCI May Semi Annual Index rebalancing. During the month, BNM surprised the market by raising OPR by 25bps at the May MPC to 2%. BNM indicated that the firmer domestic growth underscored their decision to begin reducing the degree of monetary accommodation, which will be done in a measured and gradual manner, ensuring that monetary policy remains accommodative. 1Q22 GDP growth for Malaysia came in at 5% yoy, supported by the expansion in domestic demand, recovery in the labour market, continued growth in external demand and continued policy support. In May, the rising cost of feed had sent chicken prices soaring resulting in rationing of supply. The Malaysian government responded with a direct subsidy to poultry breeders, so that the ceiling price of RM8.90/kg can be maintained. The FBM Emas Shariah Index declined 512.65 points in May to close at 11,509.63 points, down 4.26%. The FBM Small Cap Shariah index declined 7.0% for the month underperforming the FBM Emas Shariah Index. The best performing sector was Energy (+7.94%). The worst performing sectors were Plantation (-9.7%) and Healthcare (-6.2%). Average value traded on Bursa in May was RM2211 m,lower by 3.7% mom. OTHER INFORMATION ABOUT THE FUND Year .
