John Bogle on BFM

John Bogle, former CEO of Vanguard Fund or shall I say one of the most popular fund manager was interviewed on BFM two days ago.

While he is making Index Fund being popularised, shall I call it that one of the closest to index funds in Malaysia is EPF? When you are holding funds through EPF, you are basically buying closer to the Bursa Composite Index, as they typically holds almost all the larger companies in Bursa.

I do agree (if you listen to the interview) that the fees in Malaysia for unit trusts are way too high.

Insas' Rights

For those who would be wondering why Insas's share price dropped by more than 5%, it is possibly due to this as well as a 1 sen dividend (ex-date 23 Jan).

Besides the above, there are some important dates with regards to the rights, as below.

 For those whom owned Insas shares prior to 23 Jan 2015, please take note of it. if you want to sell your rights, you may want to do so between 28 Jan 2015 to 5 Feb 2015. Otherwise, it is wise to pick up the Redeemable Preference Shares.
