I was approached by my Financial Planner friend to buy AXA Pulsar (ILP). I’m a beginner to investing. Any advise on this if it’s a good investment option. Or will unit trust be a better alternative ?

I thought unit trust might be better because of commitment issues, where I can liquidate. Unlike ILP, which there will be withdrawal charges and a tenure of like 30years.

I’ve heard both have relatively high fees.

Or is there a better alternative altogether.

Hi Sara,

There are alternatives such as Endowus, where you can invest passively in unit trusts, with no sales charges and 100% trailer fee rebates to help lower your overall costs.

You can even schedule a call with a financial advisor there:

What you can do is, look at the pros and cons between AXA Pulsar and Endowus's solutions, and decide for yourself if you wanna sign up either one or even both.
