Differentiating all 80 funds under the "0% Unit Trust Sales Charge Promotion". Fund category, fund risk profile and %YTD included!

Hi readers, another 20 days left for the "Invest for as low as 0% unit trust sales charge promotion". 80 funds from 6 funds houses are on low sales charge promotion until the 31st of July 2015. 

Now the problem with 80 funds in a single promotion is that investors/readers aren't familiar with each and every fund. To be honest, I myself am only able to identify between 20 to 30 funds from the promo list.

Therefore to make things easier for everyone (including myself), I have taken the liberty to check out each fund and cross reference them with data from Morningstar. By doing so, I am able to provide you with the following details:
  • Fund Category - This will help you to narrow down the sector or geographical location where the fund is invested in. 
  • Risk Profile (relative to M'sia market) - This will help you to sort out the risk category of each fund. 
  • Year To Date (%YTD) as of 9th July 2015 - This information will tell you the performance of a fund from 1st January 2015 till 9th July 2015

All the details available for download!
Yup, that's right, details for all 80 funds have been updated in an excel file as shown in the screenshot below:
80 unit trust funds details
You may download the excel file HERE.

What can you do with the excel file?
Using the "sort & filter function", you can now sort funds based on the category, risk profile and YTD. Hopefully this will help you to:
  • Select the category that you wish to invest in (sector or geographical location)
  • Find out the risk profile of each fund
  • Compare YTD Returns between funds from the same category
