Recovering funds 

Recovering funds 

Investors who are the victims of violations of the securities laws can be eligible to retrieve money that has been recovered from scammers. The recovered funds are occasionally given to victims of an effective SEC enforcement action. 

Not every victim can get his money back. When victims obtain compensation, it may be far less than what they lost, and the process of disbursing the funds may be drawn out. 


 Disgorgement and fair funds, receiverships, consumer protections for brokerage accounts, corporate bankruptcy processes, and private class action lawsuits are just a few of the procedures that might aid victims in getting their money back. 

What is recovering funds? 

There are different ways to recover funds. In general, recovering funds refers to getting money back that you have already spent. This could mean getting a refund for something you have purchased or compensation for something you lost or got stolen. 

Before a business makes a sizable new acquisition, a capital recovery evaluation is often performed when a company decides whether and at what cost to buy an asset or engage in a new project; salvage value, initial cost, and future revenues are taken into account in a capital recovery analysis. 

You can try to get a refund from the company or person you purchased the item from, or you can file a claim with your insurance company if the item was lost or stolen. If you cannot get a refund or compensation from either of those sources, you may be able to file a lawsuit to recover the funds. 

Recovering funds can be difficult and time-consuming, but it is important to remember that you have different options available. If you are patient and persistent, you can get your money back. 

Ways to recover funds 

There are many ways to recover funds that have been lost or stolen. The most common method is to contact the bank, credit card company, or company or organisation that issued the check or money order as soon as possible or file a police report and an insurance claim. However, there are other ways to recover lost or stolen funds.

    An ETF is not like a typical unit trust as the units of the ETF (the “Units“) are to be listed and traded like any share on the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited (“SGX-ST”).

Please refer to the Prospectus of the ETF for more details.  

    Investments are subject to investment risks including the possible loss of the principal amount invested.
