For those who are new to investing and those who are planning for retirement, there is a suite of investment products for everyone.

  1. Unit trusts - it is a pool of money managed collectively by professional fund managers. You can choose the right unit trust fund to meet your goals with over 100 unit trusts available and whatever your desired portfolio mix or exposure. Your money will be pooled with that of other investors and invested according to the unit trust’s objectives by buying units into the trust. Like for example, if you invest in a China fund, the fund manager will invest your money by tapping into investment opportunities within China. The benefits of this are Professional management, Tap into inaccessible markets, Diversification, and Economies of scale.
  2. Treasury - is flexible access to multiple asset classes that are linked to the performance of underlying benchmarks such as interest rate, foreign exchange or equity and may or may not be 100% principal-protected
  3. Dual currency investments - Earn potentially higher interest from foreign currencies in this currency-linked investment and choose from nine different currencies, your preferred strike price and duration of the investment. You will receive the principal plus interest earned in either the base or alternate currency, at the pre-agreed strike price on the maturity date. With returns, you will enjoy potentially higher interest on your investment, obtain the alternative currency you need at a lower exchange rate relative to the exchange rate on the day you invest, and choose from a wide range of currencies to suit your needs. But the risk of this is foreign exchange risks associated with politics, economics and current affairs and the risk of losing part of your principal if alternative currency returned to you at maturity continues to depreciate and investment is terminated before maturity.
