Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) and Maybank jointly launched Malaysia’s first online facility for making additional investments in ASB units. With this facility, ASB investors can top up their ASB account online via Maybank2u.com, without the need to visit a Maybank branch or Amanah Saham Nasional Berhad’s (ASNB) office.
The new service marks a milestone as it offers ASB investors the convenience of making additional investments via Maybank2u.com from anywhere in the world. Another unique feature of this service is that it accepts additional investments to third party ASB accounts, thus allowing family members or guardians to invest for their loved ones.
