“The Heritage Series invests in assets that many investors may be familiar with, such as Asian credits, Singapore bonds, Asian stocks and Singapore REITS. The underlying Fullerton funds were well-received in the Singapore market since its launch in May 2019, and we are pleased to work with our partners to make the solutions available to Malaysian investors” said Jenny Sofian, CEO of Fullerton Fund Management.”

The Heritage Series’ base currency is the Singapore dollar and is established with Class MYR-Hedged and Class SGD. For the benefit of investors seeking income, the Heritage Series aims to make a consistent monthly payout.
