"Old" unit certificates issued in 1989 (pink in colour) is no longer valid as they have been replaced with "new" certificates (blue in colour) in 1990. If you are holding the "new" unit certificate issued in 1990, it is very likely that your units have been transferred to the Minister of Finance by virtue of Section 29 of the Securities Industry (Central Depositories) (Amendment)(No. 2) Act 1998 (refer to "What if my units have been transferred to the Minister of Finance?").
If you have the "old" certificate but do not have the "new" unit certificate, kindly check your CDS account as you may have already deposited the "new" certificate into your CDS account. There is also possibility that you have sold/transferred the units subsequent to depositing the certificate into your CDS account.
It is recommended that you check your records (bank statements, CDS statements, etc) to determine the status of your units before contacting the Share Registrar (Symphony Share Registrars Sdn Bhd). It is very difficult and time consuming for the Share Registrar to check records which are over 7 years old (please note that the Share Registrar in not obligated to keep records which are over 7 years old).
You simply need to update the details of your CDS account in which your units are deposited into.
To update your CDS account details, simply contact your broker or the "CDS Department" of the securities company at which you opened your CDS account.
The relevant form can also be obtained from Bursa Malaysia’s website (please click here). Simply fill in all relevant particulars before printing and then submit the form to your broker.
During each income distribution, the Share Registrar will obtain a copy of Record of Depositors (ROD) from Bursa Malaysia Depository Sdn Bhd which contains information such as your name, your CDS account no., correspondence address and the number of AHP units that you have. The data in the ROD corresponds with the details of your CDS account. Thus, by updating your CDS account, the Share Registrar can "obtain" your latest address from the ROD.
If you have not deposited your units into a CDS account, your units would have been transferred to the Minister of Finance (refer to "What if my units have been transferred to the Minister of Finance?").
If your correspondence address have changed after the entitlement date of the income distribution, your warrant would have been sent to your old address. Kindly check at your old address or you could also request for a replacement warrant in which case it is treated as lost income distribution warrant (refer to "How do I obtain a replacement income distribution warrant?").
If you have not moved and there is no change in your correspondence address and it has been more than 2 weeks after the payment date of the income distribution, it is highly possible that the warrant is lost in mail and therefore you could contact the Share Registrar for a replacement warrant (refer to "How do I obtain a replacement income distribution warrant?").

Any request for replacement warrant involves a fee of RM5.00.
