JCR-VIS Revises Fund Stability Rating of United Islamic Income Fund

Karachi, April 10, 2012: JCR-VIS Credit Rating Company Limited (JCR-VIS) has revised the Fund Stability Rating (FSR) of United Islamic Income Fund (UIIF) to ‘BB+’ (Double B Plus (f)) from ‘BBB-(f)’ (Triple B Minus (f)).

Managed by UBL Fund Managers Limited, UIIF’s investment objective was to seek investment in medium to long-term income instruments as well as short-tenor money market instruments to generate superior, long-term, risk-adjusted returns while preserving capital over the long-term. The fund has not been able to meet its objective. Performance of the fund has suffered in the on-going year on account of provisioning against high risk assets.
