PNB is offering up to 3.3 bil units of ASM and 2 bil units of ASW 2020 for sale again. ASM sales will commence today, while ASW2020 will be up for grabs this 27 April. Each account holder is limited to RM20k max investment, so i guess this is quite a good opportunity for everyone to put in some money since these two funds are well known to offer interest rates higher than FD.

The question is, why the sudden rush of bond offerings (remember National Savings Bond…), ASM/ASW2020 sales? I sense some buggers is trying to squeeze more cash from non-bumiputra and me seriously think sumting is veli veli not lite… oh well, these funds are backed by gov, that’s what ppl told me so we should not be worried… should we?
