Oh yeah…The much awaited moment has finally arrived. Amanah Saham Nasional Bhd (ASNB) had announced the first dividend payout of 6.38 cents per unit for Amanah Saham 1Malaysia (AS1M) for the financial year from 5th August 2009 until 30th Sept 2010.
It’s beyond my expectation as our government said that the dividend payout for Amanah Saham 1Malaysia (AS1M) is only 3-4% since beginning. A lot of people worried about the outcome of this investment and its potential since it is just newly launched.
Besides that, AS1M dividend payout is higher than Amanah Saham Malaysia (ASM) and Amanah Saham Wawasan 2020 (ASW 2020). As I known, this year ASM declared the dividend payout of 6.30 cents per unit while ASW 2020 dividend @ 6.35 cents per unit only.
The dividend will be automatically credited into the accounts start from 1st October 2010. So, all investor can go to update accounts at ANSB office or ANSB agents start from this period. The screenshot above is my latest income distribution statement that I received few days ago. As you can see that i invested since 5th August 2009 and get a dividend of RM128.79 after 1 year period.
