To diversify my portfolio beyond Singapore and US markets, I decided to buy some Asian, Europe and Japan unit trusts in April with my CPF-OA. The impetus was the market carnage during February and March which I saw as an opportunity to plant the seeds.

Due to the recovery of the markets since May, the funds have done well and I am up by about 19% at the time of writing. I received a pleasant surprise this week when I realized that two of the funds I bought actually give out dividend and re-invested them to the funds.

The amount is minute. For the Asian Growth fund, the yield is only 0.675% and for the Multi-Asset fund provides a yield of 1.08%. Nonetheless, I still the icing on the cake. Will wait patiently to see if the remaining four funds give dividend.
