Affin Hwang Aiiman Global Multi Thematic Fund
What is Shariah Global Multi Thematic strategy?

Incorporation of new themes/sub-themes are managed dynamically, and it is strategised by proper replacement of their respective thematic investment cycles.
  • The strategy utilises a multipronged approach to capture different megatrends that are transforming how we live and work. These include technological innovation, sustainability as well as shifting demographics and change in lifestyles that are expected to persist and continuously evolve for many years to come.
  • From Shariah point of view, the strategy will take into consideration of transformational companies with strong balance sheets, while excluding those with excessive levels of debt or those operating in unethical industries that are not well positioned for the future. Adopting thematic strategy through the shariah lens bodes well with our capabilities and this will be in line for us to exploit the untapped opportunities that have yet to be recognised by the market.
