Ph.D., and witnessed by Chair of Gadjah Mada Mutual Fund Investment Committee, Prof. Dr. Ainun Naâ€™im, Ph.D., and Director of CIMB-Principal Asset Management, Iwan Sanyoto.
As already known, offer of UGM mutual fund has been done since 2001. On 9 October 2008 Gadjah Mada Mutual Fund Series Two was launched. Chair of Committee, Prof. Dr. Ainun Naâ€™im, Ph.D, hoped that the change of name would further encourage UGM mutual fund performance. â€œThis change will encourage the performance of our mutual fund even more,â€ said Ainun.
In that occasion, Ainun extended his gratitude to previous investors for their commitment and loyalty. Despite value reduction at some stage, they did not withdraw their funds. â€œWe admitted that in 2008 there was a crisis due to reduction of mutual fund series two, but there were almost no investors withdrawing their funds,â€ he said proudly.
