Hi folks. Recently I am thinking to use the ordinary account fund inside my CPF to do the investment rather than putting there. Can provide some useful suggestion?
There are plenty of investment vehicles you can use with regards to CPF investment. In general, it is highly possible to outbid the usual 2.5% interest rate for your Ordinary Account. And typically, these investment products often don't have a lock-in period.
The key thing you'll want to look at is the funds that are invested in. Typically, you'll want look at funds with a history of strong performance and relevant trends.
If you're opting to do it through an insurer, do make sure you do it through a licensed Financial Adviser who will be always reviewing your investment performance.
All the best!
Financial planning is an integral part of life. You can reach me here to find out more.
Since 23 Jun, I parked a lump sum from CPF-OA (no DCA) with Endowus. 60% stocks, 40% bonds. I'm happy with them so far. At least, I saw my money grew almost from the get-go.
Do check them out at https://endowus.com
If you happen to like what they do and their insights, please let me know. I can send a referral link your way. You can get a $20 in Access Fee credit (equivalent to $10,000 advised free, assuming Access Fee of 0.40%). It can be used to offset your Access Fee. (How much will I pay in fees? - In your case, cash: 0.6%; If CPF, 0.4% flat regardless of amount)
Hope this helps!
