What is an ETF?
An Exchange-trade fund (“ETF”) is an investment fund that is traded on a stock exchange. ETF’s are usually designed to track a specified index and they hold assets such as stocks, bonds or commodities that match the index. By buying a unit in the ETF, an investor can get exposure to all of the assets held by the ETF.
ETFs offer a low-cost, highly efficient way for individual investors to build portfolios with more flexibility, transparency and lower costs than traditional mutual funds.
Deposit and Withdrawal
Can I deposit from a joint bank account?
Yes, you may submit a deposit from a joint bank account as long your name appear as one of the account holder
What is Regular Savings?
At MYTHEO, we always encourage investors to invest regularly because we believe that an investment needs time to grow. So, the longer your money is invested, the higher your chances of reaching your goals.
Investing the same amount on a regular basis is called “dollar cost average method” and is a popular investing technique.
By investing the same amount regularly, regardless of whether the market is high or low, you can reduce the risk of investing too much when the market is expensive. If you continue to invest fixed amounts at regular intervals, over time, your purchase prices will be averaged out. Also, by setting up an automatic bank payment on a fixed date each month, you can invest for the long term without being influenced by short-term market fluctuations.
By registering with MYTHEO’s Regular Savings Plan which is an automated standing instruction, you are committing a fixed amount of money to invest, on a regular basis (e.g. the 28th of every month). It removes the hassle for you to remember and perform the fund transfer yourself monthly.
