Q: Does this mean that the other funds from PMF are not performing?
A: Not necessarily. Only 14 funds with the financial year end of June 30th are declaring dividends. Other dividend announcements are at other times.

Q: Would you recommend investing in UT?
A: UT performance was very good especially in the early years (i.e. 90s). However, investors face challenges in Malaysia with high charges upon buying (3-6%) & annual charges (1-2%) that reduce returns. A personalized recommendation would be upon meeting with the individual. In general though, you may consider investing using EPF funds & for PRS for tax/youth incentive purposes. There also exists discount brokerages for most funds (not including PMF) that charge lower fees. Controversially to some, we opinion that UT investments are high risk & arguably riskier than investing in shares.
