Badrul added, “We are very pleased that we have received overwhelming response to AHB thus far and the Fund has received international recognition for being an attractive investment tool. While we continue to receive enquiries at Maybank branches nationwide, we remain confident that Bumiputera investors would reap benefits through participation in the beneficial ownership of prime real estate backed assets afforded by the low minimum entry point of the Fund coupled with its regular and consistent income distributions. We believe this is especially attractive to investors considering the volatile investment landscape today”.
