Finally, the much awaited moment has arrived. The expected dividend payout for Amanah Saham 1Malaysia is only 3.7-4%. Many are worried about the outcome of this investment and are in doubt on the potential of this fund since it is just newly launched. For previous article on AS 1 Malaysia, click here for general info and click here for detailed explainations and key data.
However, all doubts are now answered. Amanah Saham Nasional Berhad (ASNB) as on 23 September 2010 had announced the first dividend of 6.38 sen per unit for Amanah Saham 1Malaysia for financial year ended 30 September 2010. Official article here.
Gross income up to 21 September 2010 = RM 294.05 million
- Sale of shares contributed RM165.47 million or 56.3%
- Investee companies contributed RM99.80 million or 33.9%
- Investment in short term instruments and other income contributed RM 28.78 million or 9.8%
The income distribution achieved will be automatically credited into unit holder accounts on 1 October 2010. Hence, all account holders can update their accounts at ANSB office or ANSB agents starting from 1 October 2010. However, the income distribution statement and the fund annual report will only be send out beginning November 2010.
So, to all my dear investors-mate who have been checking my blog for the Amanah Saham 1Malaysia information last year, are you guys satisfied? I'm am sure most of you are very happy and regretted of not purchasing more units. Haha. Who can expect the dividend payout is higher than ASM with 6.3%?
Will be looking forward this coming 1 October to update my account book~ xD
Happy investing and happy earning!!
