The annual Morningstar Malaysia Fund Awards are designed to help investors identify the retail funds that added the most value for investors within the context of their relevant peer group in 2016 and over longer time periods. Morningstar selects the winners using a quantitative methodology with a qualitative overlay that considers the one-, three-, and five-year performance history of all eligible funds, and adjusts returns for risk using Morningstar Risk, a measure that imposes a higher penalty for downside variation in a fund’s return than it does for upside volatility.  

The winners of the 2017 Morningstar Malaysia Fund Awards are:



Best Asia-Pacific Equity Fund

Affin Hwang Select Asia (ex Jpn) Quantum

Best Malaysia Bond (Syariah) Fund

Public Islamic Bond

Best Malaysia Bond Fund

AmDynamic Bond

Best Malaysia Large-Cap Equity (Syariah) Fund

Public Ittikal 

Best Malaysia Large-Cap Equity Fund

Affin Hwang Select Opportunity




The Morningstar fund category and fund house awards are based on Morningstar fund data as of 31 December 2016. The awards methodology emphasises the one-year period, but funds must also have delivered strong three- and five-year returns after adjusting for risk within the awards peer groups in order to obtain an award.
