      Was looking for a robo investment platform and found Kristal.AI. The staff are friendly and helpful imo. They are always ready to help. It's my first time investing and have been a pleasant one so far. =)

      [User Experience] For a beginner it was definitely not an easy platform to use. [Customer Support] However the customer support is stellar and they are so quick in their response, you can practically get all the info you need from their live WhatsApp chat (: [Investment Method] Definitely a plus for investors with a small capital (less than 10000) because of the lack of fees charges. If anything the customer officers will explain to you their fee structures. But definitely much more affordable than other platforms.

      Platform is easy to use, however range of ETFs on the Roboadvisory appears quite US-centric and limited. Also it takes up to 3 working days for funds to be processed compared to 30 min on some other platforms.

      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.
