Hi, I have recently opened the DBS Multiplier account. I would like to increase the interest rate by making transactions in the investment category. What are some possible unit trusts to consider if I already have the POSB Investsaver? ?

Is it worth it to redeem the investsaver, wait 6 months and invest in it again for it to count as an eligible transaction?

What are your thoughts?

Can consider making SSB ladder by buying 6 months of SSB consecutively. What I read is the interest from SSB is considered as investment. Since SSB pays out twice a year, by buying 6 consecutive SSB, you will get continuous stream of interest income for the next 10 years. You only need to spend $2 to buy SSB and minimum purchase is $500.

So far this is the theory which I read. Personally I am still building my SSB ladder and will only get my interest Jan next year.

Good for:

​

-Young working adults who just started working (Low salary credit of $2k)

-Low credit spending (those who cannot meet $500 spending)

​

-New or want to start POSB invest-saver

​

-Less than or equal to $50k savings (anything above, transfer to CIMB Fastsaver)

​

My strategy to utilised DBS Multiplier Account: -DBS Credit card spend (at least $1)

​

-DBS visa debit card(5% rebate t&c applies)

-POSB invest-saver

Salary credit: $2000

Credit card: $1 Total interests earn: 1.55% ($31/mth)

Salary credit: $2000

Credit card: $1

POSB Invest-Saver: $100

Total interests earn: 1.85% ($38.80/mth)

So effectively, POSB Invest-Saver is commission fee FREE! ($7.80 per month extra to invest) *Only applies for 12mths for POSB Invest-Saver

​

This is what I'm doing now and will update after a year on POSB Invest-Saver.

Feel free to ask questions :D
