      [Investment Method] Good for investors with a small capital (less than 10k if I am not wrong) due to the lack of management fees charges as compared to other robo advisors.

      [User Experience] UI/UX is very clean and professional. They have many ETFs offering as well as Kristal portfolios which look really interesting. The app is very informative as compared to other Robos, definitely under "valued" by the community as it is not spoken/shared of as often. [Customer Support] Amazing customer support who attends to your request as quickly as possible. Shout out to Leslie who attended to my queries, responsive and professional. [Returns Rate] Will update when I'm in for a longer period of time as I've just invested, it'll not be fair for a judgement now. [Onboarding Experience] Easy and quick. [Investment Method] I guess a tiny downside for me personally who be the investments are by units and not figure based. [Waiting Time] Onboarding to funding to invested was pretty quick. As well as the support.

      Been trying to find a robo advising platform that was easy to use and had enough support. As a beginner, I found Kristal.ai had great service staff and had more than enough information for me to make informed decisions and get started. Have already recommended to all my family and friends, and they also love it!

Please refrain from this advisor and try platform like stashaway or syfe.

      • Zero Management fees for accounts under USD$10,000 and below. Kristal does not charge fees for investors with under US$10,000 invested and only starts charging a 0.3% management fee on your account when the value increases to more than US$10,000.
      • Fees: 0.30% excluding custody and asset operation fees
      • Platform Fees: $0
      • Many Seedly reviewers also noted great user-friendliness and seamless registration of the Kristal platform, as well as good customer service from Kristal personnel.

      Kristal Portfolios

      While there's the flexibility to personalise your portfolio, Kristal.AI also caters to investors who prefer to take a passive approach in their investment journeys. 

      Retail (Digital) Investors only

      1. All Weather US - Unleveraged - Ideal for investors looking to gain diversified exposure to various asset classes with the objective of balanced growth. The Kristal provides consistent performance through most market conditions. It is therefore ideal in times of economic uncertainties. Due to the growth component of equities, the Kristal is also placed well for regular periodic investments.
      2. Katalyst - Ideal for medium-risk profile investors looking for an actively managed strategy that delivers growth via capital appreciation. The Kristal performs best in a stable and growing economic environment.
      3. Autopilot Secure  - 100% genetic algorithm based Kristal which allows investors with a low-risk profile to use Algo based investments that are rebalanced regularly through a rules-driven approach, without having to lift a finger.  It removes the human element of emotion to drive your investment decisions, which has been in many portfolios the biggest inhibitor of long term sustained performance.
      4. Autopilot Growth - 100% genetic algorithm based Kristal which allows investors with a high-risk appetite to use Algo based investments that are rebalanced regularly through a rules-driven approach. The algorithm dynamically rebalances the portfolio with the changing market environment. This makes the strategy investable in all economic environments.

      Accredited Investors only

      1. Kristal Core Strategy Fund - aims to achieve optimum absolute returns on a risk-adjusted basis. The strategy aims to achieve a consistent return through most phases of the economic cycle.
      2. Kristal Founders Fund - Generates returns through model driven investments as well as tactical trades across rates, credit, equity, volatility, and crypto markets. A substantial portion of the capital is invested in high grade fixed income instruments to achieve stability and consistency of returns. Most positions are in US markets with relatively smaller sizes in Europe, India and Japan.
      3. USD Leveraged Bond (Pooled) - Invest in fixed income instruments issued by corporate and sovereign issuers. This strategy is deemed suitable for long term investors looking for an enhanced return compared to a conventional Bond portfolio.
      4. Bitcoin DigiTrackers SP - tracks the portfolios of the best investors out there from Munger to Buffett and Bezos, comprises value-investment equities for long term capital appreciation. 
      5. G2 Fund- discretionary macro hedge fund trading in global exchange-traded instruments. The Cayman Registered Fund targets annual absolute return >15%, implementing strict risk management to limit volatility to <10% and monthly drawdowns to <5%. The CIO has over 35yrs of money management experience in global macro markets.
      6. Kristal ELONs - For those with a high-risk appetite, this portfolio consists of Government bonds and high-grade liquid bonds.
