Benefits of unit trusts
Unit trusts offer several key benefits:
Diversification in one investment
A unit trust fund invests in a diverse portfolio of investments. This helps to diversify your risk better than investing in a single security.
Liquidity and no lock-in period
You can buy and sell unit trusts on any dealing day with ease - online or through your Relationship Manager.
Low costs and investment commitment to access a basket of securities
Unit trusts let you access a portfolio of investments from as low as SGD1,000 - a more cost efficient option than building the portfolio yourself.
Access to different markets and investment instruments
Gain exposure to countries/regions, sectors and investments that are not easily accessible as an individual.
Let the experts work for you - your investments are managed by investment professionals who spend their careers researching and managing investments.

Things to consider
As with all investments, there is an element of risk.
- Market volatility will cause the value of a unit trust to rise or fall
- Foreign exchange rates can fluctuate, so a unit trust may change in value if it invests in investments denominated in a different currency than what you invested in
- The performance of any unit trust also depends on the expertise and investment decisions of its fund managers
- Unit trusts differ in terms of investment objectives, strategies, risks and costs. It is important to choose one that best matches your investment objectives and risk profile.
You need to have the following:
- An active investment account with HSBC with Personal Internet Banking (PIB).
- A valid settlement account in the denominated currency of the Fund you wish to invest into.
- Valid Customer Knowledge Assessment (CKA) where you have assessed to have knowledge and experience in transacting UT.
