Our investment team focuses on discovering value stocks which tend to be in the mid and small cap category. We are not afraid to take big bets on stocks that we have strong conviction. We also invest cautiously on cyclical stocks such as those in the property, construction, building materials and technology sector where we will normally hold for a shorter duration due to their inherent risk of higher beta especially in a bear market. ”We believe our commitment and passion to fund management will continue to motivate us to search for stocks that can outperform the market.” says Andy Lim Say Kiat, Chief Executive Officer/ Managing Director of Phillip Mutual Bhd.

He added, “We are thankful to all our business partners and valued investors for their continuous support throughout the market cycles.”
