Invest in Gold the Convenient and Affordable Way with
Public e-Emas Gold Fund
Public Bank's wholly-owned subsidiary, Public Mutual, is launching a new fund named Public e-Emas Gold Fund (PeEMAS) on 1 September 2021.
PeEMAS provides investors with exposure to the performance of gold bullion prices by investing at least 90% of its net asset value (NAV) in gold-backed ETFs, with the balance invested in liquid assets which include money market instruments and deposits. The Fund offers lower transaction costs in comparison with other methods of investing in gold such as gold investment accounts (GIAs).
In addition, PeEMAS offers investors a secure and cost-effective way to invest in gold bullion without the hassle of buying or storing physical gold bullion, which typically raises concerns over theft and costs for secure storage.
"PeEMAS is suitable for investors who wish to diversify their investment portfolios while potentially hedging against economic uncertainties, high inflation and geopolitical risks," said Public Mutual's Chief Executive Officer, Ms Yeoh Kim Hong.
The Fund is available exclusively online via the Public Mutual Online (PMO) platform with a minimum initial and additional investment amount of RM100 and a sales charge of up to 1.0% of NAV per unit with zero redemption fees. The initial issue price for PeEMAS is RM1.00 per unit during the 21-day initial offer period from 1 to 21 September 2021.
In addition, all investors will receive one lucky draw entry for every RM3,000 investment made into a PeEMAS account via PMO during the campaign period to stand a chance to win up to RM3,888 worth of PeEMAS units. Interested investors may find out more about the campaign at www.publicmutual.com.my. Terms and conditions apply.
All statements of transactions, investments and reports regarding PeEMAS will be made available online to unit holders. For more details of the Fund, please get in touch with Public Mutual's unit trust consultants (UTCs) or visit any Public Mutual or Public Bank branch nationwide.
Public Mutual is Malaysia's largest private unit trust company with more than 170 funds under its management. It is also an approved Private Retirement Scheme (PRS) provider, managing nine PRS funds. It has a total of 31 branches/customer service centres nationwide. As at end-July 2021, the fund size managed by the Company was more than RM100 billion^.
