Debunk the age-old myth which proclaims that investing requires a large pool of capital - our Monthly Investment Plan only requires S$100!
What is Monthly Investment Plan?

Investing does not have to be costly, complicated and time-consuming. With our Monthly Investment Plan (MIP), there is now an affordable and simple way to invest. 

Start building a portfolio of blue chip stocks with as little as SGD100 a month at SGD1 commission and erase the need to time the market – just choose a counter, set an amount, and our MIP automatically buys that counter for you every month.

This means you buy more shares when its price is low, and less shares when the price is high!

Why Invest Through Monthly Investment Plan?

1. Extensive List of Securities 
Select from over 230 stocks across 5 markets - Singapore, USA, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Thailand - including STI ETF, Ascendas REIT, Apple, Alphabet Inc., Alibaba and Tencent.

These stocks are typically components of popular indices. For the Singapore market, all 30 component companies of The Straits Times Index (STI) are available through Monthly Investment Plan (MIP), which include stocks such as Singtel, Capitaland and DBS.

You can also trade certain exchange traded funds (ETFs), like NIKKO AM STI ETF 100 and SPDR STI ETF, and Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs).

2. Build a Portfolio of Blue Chips Stocks with as Little as SGD100 Per Month at SGD1 Commission

With our MIP, you can purchase stocks in smaller amounts with your chosen monthly investment and pay as little as SGD1 in commission.

Below is an illustration of how many shares you can purchase with SGD100, SGD200, SGD500 and SGD2000 monthly:

Code Name Price (SGD)^ With SGD100 With SGD200 With SGD500 With SGD2000
ES3 STI ETF 3.08  32  64  162  649
G3B NIKKO AM STI ETF 3.16  31  63  158  632
T82U SUNTEC REIT 1.75  57  114  285  1142
S68 SGX 7.12  14  28  70  280

^As of 22 November 2018 
The example above does not take into consideration market liquidity, fees and charges.


3. Hassle-Free, Regular Investing

MIP automatically executes your investments every month based on your predetermined investment amount. This means that you buy more stocks when the price is low and fewer stocks when the price is high. Your average price per stock could potentially be lower.

This strategy is widely known as Dollar-Cost Averaging, as it lessens the risk of investing a large amount in a single investment at the wrong time.

An Example of Dollar-Cost Averaging*:

Lump Sum Investment


Investment Amount

Price of Blue Chip Share A

Number of Shares Bought









Total invested = SGD400

Cost per share = SGD400/400 = SGD1

Dollar Cost Averaging Via Monthly Investment Plan


Investment Amount

Price of Blue Chip Share A

Number of Shares Bought





















 Total invested = SGD400

Cost per share = SGD400/520 = SGD0.77

Monthly Investment Plan could save you SGD1 - SGD0.77 = SGD0.23 per share!
