A Unit Trust is one of the most popular managed investments that is easily accessible and affordable for those who are just starting out on their investment journey. It pools your money together with other investors to invest in a wide range of assets so that you can participate in a diversified portfolio even with smaller investment amounts.

Unlike robo advisors, your Unit Trusts are managed by professional fund managers who are experts in their field and will help you invest according to your risk appetite.

With Unit Trusts, a medium- to long-term investment (ie. 3 to 20 years) can give you much better returns than cash savings and fixed deposits in the long run.

Ways to Invest

Compound Returns via Compound Interests

Buy Low, Sell High

Dollar-Cost Averaging (DCA) via Regular Savings Plan (RSP)

It takes time and patience to maximise the benefits of compound interest. That’s why the key is to start early.


When accumulated over time, compounding interests can make a huge difference in your earnings. For example, investing RM100 every month from age 25, vs investing RM100 every month from age 35 could add up to a difference of RM83,556 in total.

When you invest in a Unit Trust, your fund manager buys units of the fund alongside many other investors. As the fund increases or decreases in value, the value of each unit increases or decreases accordingly.


Like most “buy low, sell high” investment strategies, you can make money by selling your units for a higher price than at the price you initially bought them. 

A RSP lets you automate your investments by allowing you to regularly invest small amounts at a frequency you are comfortable with to build up your investment steadily.


You can achieve DCA with RSP by buying more units when the prices are low, and lesser units when prices are high. Over time, the average cost of your investment could potentially be lower as opposed to making a one-time, lump sum investment.

Why invest in a Unit Trust?

  • Easy to start investing from just RM100 per month.
  • Professionally-managed by fund managers to help achieve your financial goals.
  • Flexibility to cash out with evolving lifestyle needs.
  • Hands-off investment so you can focus on the important things in life.
  • Diversification allows for better risk management.
  • Taps into faraway markets that require high capital.

Fun Fact: One of the most popular Unit Trusts in Malaysia is Amanah Saham Bumiputera (ASB), distributed by Amanah Saham National Berhad (ASNB).
