What is an MPF Scheme Brochure?
The MPF Scheme Brochure is a document setting out the important information about an MPF scheme for reference, inviting participation in an MPF scheme by prospective members. It includes the following important information about the scheme for members to make informed decisions.
  • names of operators (e.g. trustee, custodian, investment manager, auditors and other service providers)
  • investment policies and objectives (including the investment focus) of each fund
  • guarantee features of guaranteed funds (if any)
  • risk factors affecting fund performance
  • contributions, withdrawals and transfer, and fund switching procedures
  • valuation of funds
  • fees and charges
The information above is not exhaustive. Members should refer to the MPF Scheme Brochure of their respective scheme for details.

How to access the investment focus of each fund

 

The information can be accessed by clicking the “Investment Focus” icon under MPF Scheme Brochure in the List of Registered MPF Schemes & Funds 

MPF Tips
When choosing an MPF scheme and its funds, members should read the MPF Scheme Brochure carefully to find out whether the scheme and the relevant funds meet their retirement needs and risk tolerance level.

In an MPF Scheme Brochure, the key features of each fund will be shown in a standardized table, providing members with a clear overview. The table will set out information such as the name of the fund, the name of the investment manager, fund structure, fund descriptor and investment focus, e.g. the type of assets invested in and its weightings. 

 

What is a Fund Fact Sheet?
The fund fact sheet is like a report card of an MPF fund, explaining how the fund performed during the reporting period. It provides a summary of the key information of a fund, including:
  • fund size (net asset value)
  • launch date
  • fund descriptor
  • investment policies and objectives of the fund
  • summary of portfolio allocation and top 10 portfolio holdings
  • fund performance
  • performance benchmark (if any)
  • fund expense ratio
  • fund risk indicator
  • risk class
  • commentary on fund performance

MPF Tip
When choosing MPF funds or reviewing current fund choices, scheme members should read the Fund Fact Sheets carefully to understand the features and risk level of each fund to ensure that the chosen fund suits their needs.

When will the fund fact sheet be available in this repository?

 

MPF trustees issue at least two fund fact sheets every year reporting the above information. The two reporting dates are:

  1. at the end of the financial period of the relevant scheme
  2. at the end of the next six-month period

Some trustees may provide more frequent reporting to scheme members (e.g. quarterly fund fact sheets) and make them available on their websites. The latest fund fact sheets provided by trustees are made available in this repository.

What is an Annual Consolidated Report?
 Annual consolidated reports are prepared by MPF trustees for each financial period of their MPF schemes. An annual consolidated report consists mainly of the following information, covering an MPF scheme and its funds:

Financial statements of an MPF scheme and its funds
  •  Assets and liabilities
  • Profit/loss
  • Itemized fees and charges
     
 

Investment report of an MPF scheme and its funds


  • Investment policies and objectives of individual funds

MPF Tips
The information disclosed in the consolidated reports of MPF schemes helps members get a better understanding of the financial position of the schemes and their funds when they are choosing an MPF scheme and funds or reviewing their current scheme and fund choices.

When choosing from different MPF schemes and funds, members should read the annual consolidated reports carefully and consider every factor (including but not limited to the areas mentioned above) so as to make the most appropriate choices for their situation.
