Have you ever dreamt of living the good life?
My dad has always believed in buying unit trusts and blue chip stocks as part of his portfolio of investments. He gave me shares for my 18th birthday in a certain F&B company (which isn’t performing very well) and have always encouraged me to diversify my investments. I have mutual funds and I’m getting a condo in June but currently my primary “investment” techniques involves heading up the hills, which isn’t very wise as I lost RM 11,000 just a couple of weeks back.
However, the oft quoted idiom “Like father, like son” does not apply to our family. My dad is a very conservative person and invests solely in stuff that involves low risk, with long term returns as his primary objective. I, on the other hand, have a natural affinity to terms like “high risk, high returns”. I do not like waiting too, so I like to see results fast.
When I was introduced to Fundsupermart.com I was immediately attracted to their 2% or lower upfront fee and online transaction capabilities. They also have a wide range of products you can ride on – they offer a staggering 130+ funds which includes emerging markets, commodities, energy and even gold and minerals!
The best thing about them is that opening an account as well as maintaining it is free of charge, so I’m going to check them out. You can choose to invest from as low as RM 100 monthly so it’s great for those new to unit trusts.
I must admit, I’m a newbie in this world too, but Fundsupermart.com offers an extensive guide online on how to invest as well as risk ratings, news, fund selector tools and even a fund returns calculator!
Since it’s all online, you get to have a shorter transaction time – perfect for those of us who works long hours and don’t have time to meet with traditional unit trust resellers.
This also means you can keep track of all your investments and buy and sell with a click of a button.
Money at your fingertips! I just need to learn a bit more about what they have to offer.
Fundsupermart.com is having a seminar at The Apartment @ the Curve on the 30th May 2010, 1 pm – 3 pm and it’s free to attend! These investment seminars usually charges a fee to attend so I think it’s great that theirs is FOC. I’ll be going to learn more and if you’re interested, all you’ve got to do is be signed on to your Nuffnang account, complete the sentence “I want my financial freedom redefined because…” and leave a comment here.
You can also learn more about them by joining their Facebook page here.
Invest and live the life you want to in your twilight years! =D
