Total return of the iEdge SG Advanced Manufacturing Index is at 25%.

Stocks of corporates with manufacturing activity netted institutional inflows of close to S$19m in Q3 through 7 September, according to data released by the SGX. 

Stocks in the iEdge SG Advanced Manufacturing Index recorded a 4% decline in total return during the period, on the back of growing market risks.

In total, these factors have reduced the overall total return of the Index since the end of 2019 to 25%.
