Is it a wise choice to invest in OCBC's Blue Chip Investment Plan or use platforms such as StashAway or is it better to keep the money in my StanChart's JumpStart Account with 2% interest?

I am 22 years old and currently hold some units for CapitaMall Trust, DBS and Singtel which I bought through OCBC'S BCIP. I am thinking if it is worth it to buy more units for CapitMall Trust and DBS now since their prices are lower now.

  • if you prefer global exposure, Stashaway.
