Q: What is RHB Cash Management Fund 2?

A: The RHB Cash Management Fund 2 is a fund which invests in deposits distributed exclusively in Fundsupermart only. This means that it invests its entire assets in a number of bank deposits with varying periods of maturity, denominated in Malaysian Ringgit (RM) only.

You may use the Cash Management Fund to make direct payments for your cash purchases, without any time lag. When you feel that it is time invest in a particular unit trust, you can switch funds out of your Cash Management Fund at anytime, to conduct such a purchase transaction.

In addition to the ease and convenience of transacting, you may also park your money in the Cash Management Fund to earn potentially better returns. This makes the Cash Management Fund an excellent and convenient avenue to park your inactive monies while waiting for the right time to make an investment. To make things even better, parking of monies in the Cash Management Fund involves zero sales charges!

Unlike the forward pricing basis applied to most unit trusts, the Cash Management Fund will be priced on the historical pricing basis. This means that the investors who buy into the Cash Management Fund will be able to view the fund’s actual unit price for the preceding trading day, and buy into the fund at that price. Forward pricing, on the other hand, only allows investors to view the price at which they have bought in their units on a particular trading day, one or two trading days after the date of transaction.
