There are many factors for clients to consider such as investor risk preference, investment objective and goal, as well as investment horizon. An investment in a certain fund may be suited to one but not another. Therefore, clients should consult their investment consultant to find an appropriate investment guideline.
The duration of investment depends on the client and the type of mutual fund to invest. Money market and some fixed income mutual fund can be invested in a short-term time frame. Equity or other asset mutual funds have higher risk or volatility, so they should be invested for longer-term horizon. However, if the investor is satisfied with the current return, they may redeem that fund. Additionally, for LTF and RMF, clients have to invest in the time required by law.
Income from mutual fund is divided into dividend income and capital gain. According to Thai law, dividend income from mutual fund investment is taxable. A unit holder can choose to either deduct 10% withholding tax or include the dividend income in his/her personal income tax calculation. Some parts of capital gain are untaxed. Clients may contact their respective investment consultant for more details.
