Ride on the Success of Founder-led Shariah-Compliant Companies with Public e-Islamic Pioneer Entrepreneur 40 Fund
Public Bank’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Public Mutual, is launching a new fund named Public e-Islamic Pioneer Entrepreneur 40 Fund (PeIPE40F) on 21 April 2021.
PeIPE40F aims to ride on the success of founder-led companies and will invest up to a maximum of 40 Shariah-compliant stocks primarily focused on pioneer entrepreneur stocks, which refer to stocks of companies whereby the founder of the company is part of the company’s management team and/or sits on the company’s board of directors at the point of purchase.
Some of the world’s most innovative and successful companies have one thing in common – they are run by their founders, who usually have a clear vision for the company’s future and the desire to build a successful company that lasts. PeIPE40F will invest primarily in these companies, as they tend to benefit from better innovation, greater adaptability and long-term sustainability.
As PeIPE40F focuses its investments in a portfolio of up to 40 stocks, it enables the Fund to take concentrated positions in selected key stocks with good fundamentals and strong earnings growth potential. In order to achieve long-term capital growth, the Fund will invest 75% to 98% of its net asset value (NAV) in Shariah-compliant equities globally, with the balance invested in sukuk and Islamic liquid assets.
The Fund is available exclusively online via our Public Mutual Online (PMO) platform with a minimum initial and additional investment amount of RM100 and a sales charge of as low as 3.75%. The initial issue price for PeIPE40F is RM0.2500 per unit during the 21-day initial offer period from 21 April to 11 May 2021.
In addition, the first 100 new investors1 who enrol via the New Investor Enrolment on Public Mutual’s website and invest at least RM3,000 per transaction into PeIPE40F through online investment during the campaign period will receive an additional 300 units of PeIPE40F. All qualified investors will also receive one lucky draw entry and stand a chance to win up to 10,000 additional units of the Fund. Interested investors may find out more about the campaign at www.publicmutual.com.my. Terms and conditions apply.
