Although they just announced today that there’s no sales charges for this AS1M but I forsee there’s no queue or so much havoc like the previous ASM and ASW2020. Moreover all the uncle and aunty taken out all their money invest in those two funds and not forgetting about Sukuk Simpanan Rakyat (Gov. Savings Bond).
