Supplementary Retirement Scheme (SRS)
Asked on 11 Jan 2020
Is it possible to start with Stashaway Simple to use my SRS funds until I have made a final conclusion on how to invest it long term? I am thinking of Endowus, also my bank UOB tries to sell me some "special" trusts or so. So I need more time to check that. Can I use Stashaway now and then change it later? How would that work?
It is possible. Whatever you sell/redeem for SRS with other platforms (like stashaway) will be returned back to your SRS account. Then you can invest in your UOB "special trusts" or Endowus if you so wish to.
If you are worried that the market will tank this year, you can do a regular savings plan/DCA with us, and it would be cost efficient since we don't have any transaction cost.
Also, if you are uncomfortable with huge drops in the market, our risk profiling would have allocated you a more conservative portfolio (say 20% bonds 80% equities).
