This Spotlight is sponsored by Amanah Saham Nasional Berhad (ASNB).

In 1979, Amanah Saham Nasional Berhad (ASNB), a subsidiary company of Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB), was established to manage unit trust funds

It has been over 40 years since then, and the unit trust management company now has 16 unit trust funds, carrying more than RM260 billion! 

With a strong reputable standing in the field, Malaysians have been investing in unit trusts through the company, resulting in over 14 million investment accounts created. Additionally, ASNB also has 32 office branches and more than 2,700 agents nationwide. 

From coming up with new products, to launching their myASNB app a few years ago, ASNB is continuously offering new and convenient ways for their customers to invest. 

Recently, ASNB announced their new onboarding feature on their myASNB app, so you no longer have to visit their counters to open an account!

Additionally, existing users can also now update their personal details through the mobile app. 

This is part of the unit trust management company's digitalisation strategy – to revamp and remodel the myASNB app to bring forward a string of new features, designed to make investing via mobile easier, quicker, and more convenient. 

And it's so easy to sign up for an account via the myASNB app! Check out ASNB's tutorial video:

On top of the new onboarding feature, another new function on the myASNB app is Target Labur – an online tool to help you achieve your financial goals

Whether you plan to invest in a property, save for retirement, plan for a vacation, buy a car, or put aside funds for your children's education, Target Labur lets you create goals you want to achieve. Just set your target amount and duration, and the feature will help keep you on track to achieving your personal finance goals according to schedule.

And here's another great thing about the feature – you can also customise your investment goals whenever you like, be it increasing your target to cater to your long-term goals or customising it to meet your short-term goals.

Here's how to create a financial goal under Target Labur:
1. Click on Target Labur in your myASNB app
2. Select a suggested goal or create your own
3. Key in the target amount and date

5. Click Create Goal and start investing monthly
