Possible with robo advisors now

Definitely agree with the comments posted. Like what many has said

  1. You can find a bank and start an investment program with them. The minimum sum required is $100 per month (e.g. OCBC- blue chip investment program).

  2. You may use roboadvisor instead. However, do note that for roboadvisor, some may require an initial lump sum before allowing you to setup monthly investment plan. (E.g. AutoWealth require an initial sum of $3,000 and subsequently able to put in monthly scheme of $100).

Therefore, may you can research on which platform offer you the best plan before engaging the service. Do remember to look at the management fee. Roboadvisor generally have a fee of around 0.08% while banks might charge $xx per transaction and will be in percentage if exceed certain amount. Do the calculation to find the most cost saving platform to use.

Yes you can! Depending on your appetite, you can consider robo-advisors and regular saving plans. If you are planning to invest a lump sum to test water and diversify your investment globally, you can consider stahsaway or syfe with no minimum amount to start investing. If you are planning to invest monthly, there are regular savings plan which you can choose to invest in local ETFs.

If you’re new ... -> Robo Advisors!!!

  • flexible
  • withdraw anytime
  • they will help you manage your funds but you have to pay them management fees :)
