Fund Manager Commentary During the month under review, the Fund posted an annualized return of 5.9% as compared to the Benchmark return of 2.3% thus registering an outperformance of 3.6% p.a. This outperformance is net of management fee and all other expenses. The allocation in corporate Sukuks stood at around 6.6% of the net assets. Around 75% of net assets of the portfolio are allocated in bank deposits. The higher allocation in bank deposits is due to better yields as compared to other authorized alternative investment avenues. The weighted average Yield-to-Maturity (YTM) of the Sukuk portfolio is around 6.4% p.a. and weighted average time to maturity is 3.1 years. The weighted average time to maturity of the Fund is 189 days. We will rebalance the allocation of the Fund proactively based on the capital market outlook. ** effective from March 14, 2017; Previously 1-year average deposit rates of three A rated Islamic Banks/Islamic windows of conventional banks as selected by MUFAP *** effective from January 02, 2017 Asset Allocation (% of Total Assets) 30-Apr-18 Sukuks GOP Ijara Sukuks - Govt.
