Frequently Asked Questions

    By pooling your funds you gain access to investment opportunities, which are normally unavailable to the individual investor.
    Investors' rights and interest are well protected by an independent Trustee (who is appointed to ensure that the manager is in compliance with the terms and conditions of the Trust Deed), an independent Auditor and the Securities Commission.

  • No, returns of funds are not guaranteed as they invest in assets (for example, shares and bonds) which fluctuate in value on a daily basis. The price of the Funds' investments will rise and fall and consequently cause unit prices to rise and fall. Therefore, we cannot guarantee fund returns.

  • Versatile Investment Portfolio (VIP) is an investment facility designed by the Manager to provide active investors with an investment strategy which offers the flexibility to tailor their ideal investment solutions. The VIP provides investors a professional diversified portfolio with access to two types of asset classes – equity and fixed income funds with unlimited free switches between the selected Funds. It is an easy and convenient way for active investors to manage and customise their investment portfolios according to their investment goals, risk profiles and prevailing market conditions.


    Standalone incomeTRUST Fund
    Investors may also invest ONLY in Areca incomeTRUST Fund on a standalone basis (if you do not wish or are not ready to invest in equity funds) without the benefit of the free switches. Investors can access the VIP switch option through a conversion facility.

As salaried employees of the Manager, the service personnel are focused on enhancing investors’ total investment experience with the Manager over the Long-Term period.
  • Income earned by the Fund during the financial year is accrued in its unit’s price until the end of the distribution period. When an income distribution is declared, any interest income and realized capital profits are paid to unit holders. Consequently, the Fund's net asset value per unit, and therefore the application (offer) and withdrawal (bid) prices will tend to fall by approximately the same amount as the income distribution.

  • Unclaimed monies - after 12 months, the Trustee will credit to the Consolidated Trust account and lodge it with the Registrar which will be held for a further 12 months to enable owners of the monies to collect.
