  • Public Strategic Growth Fund (PSTGF or the Fund) seeks to achieve capital growth over the medium to long-term period by investing in a diversified portfolio of stocks primarily in the domestic market. Up to 30% of the Fund’s net asset value (NAV) may be invested in the foreign markets to tap into the broader array of investment opportunities available overseas.
  • As at 30 August 2022, 77.0% of PSTGF’s NAV was invested in equities while 23.0% of NAV was invested in money market instruments. The Fund focused on sectors such as financial, consumer, industrial and technology in the domestic and U.S. markets.
  • From its commencement on 28 December 2014 up to 30 August 2022, the Fund registered a total return of +71.19% to outperform its benchmark’s return of +16.89%. This outperformance was underpinned by its holdings of technology stocks which benefitted from the global digitalisation trend.
  • For the 3-year and 5-year periods ended 30 August 2022, the Fund registered respective returns of +29.73% and +40.31% to also outperform its benchmark’s respective returns of +2.99% and -0.16%.
  • Going forward, the Fund may look to capitalise on stocks of selected companies which stand to benefit from the post-pandemic recovery in economic activities as well as the rise in interest rates. The Fund may also continue to focus on investments within the technology and consumer sectors that are leveraged to long-term trends such as the digitalisation of the corporate and consumer environments as well as the growing consumption in tandem with an increasing global population and the expanding middle-class.
