  • Public Growth Balanced Fund (PGRBF or the Fund) adopts a balanced asset allocation approach while focusing its equity investments on companies with earnings growth that potentially outpaces other stocks within their respective sectors.
  • As at 30 September 2020, 58.0% of PGRBF’s net asset value (NAV) was invested in equities while 36.5% and 5.5% of NAV was invested in fixed income securities and money market instruments respectively. The Fund focused on equities within the Technology, Industrial, Consumer, Diversified and Basic Materials sectors in Malaysia, the U.S., Taiwan, Korea and Singapore markets.
  • From its commencement on 27 October 2015 up to 30 September 2020, the Fund registered a total return of +34.97% to outperform its benchmark’s return of +0.09%. This outperformance was attributed to the rise in selected Technology, Industrial and Communications stocks which benefited from the increasing adoption of Internet-connected devices and services as well as the reallocation of manufacturing orders amid global trade tensions.
  • For the 1-year and 3-year periods ended 30 September 2020, the Fund also registered respective returns of +20.83% and +19.01% to outperform its benchmark’s respective returns of -1.60% and -4.65%.
  • Going forward, the Fund will look to be positioned in the Technology and Communications sectors to ride on the long-term trends of the digital era. The Fund will also focus on selected stocks in the Industrial sector which stand to benefit from the increased automation of manufacturing processes amid demand for improved productivity.
