Regular Savings Plan (RSP) is an investment plan that offers a consistent and disciplined means of investment that provides access to stocks and unit trusts with low cost on a monthly basis.

In Phillip, we offer a regular fixed-dollar amount investment plan which enables you to buy shares or unit trusts. By investing a fixed amount of funds consistently every month over a period of time, you will eventually buy more units when prices are low and less units when prices are high. This investment method is known as dollar-cost averaging, and it is especially useful in hedging against market volatility where it lessens the risk of investing a large amount in a single investment.

Why regular savings plan?

Good for Beginners

New to investing? If you are conservative and would like to start small, this plan could be ideal for you as you could start from as low as $100.

Setting Goals in Life

The most important thing about setting goals in life is having one. Whether you are planning for retirement, saving for your children’s education or aiming to achieve other financial objectives, Regular Savings Plan (“RSP”) could potentially help you reach your goals with peace of mind. RSP is an investment plan that offers a consistent and disciplined means of investment that provides access to stocks and unit trusts with low cost on a monthly basis.

“Time in the Market”, rather than “Timing the Market”

It is difficult to time the market where the prices fluctuate all the time. However, by adapting the approach of dollar-cost averaging, it turns market fluctuations to your benefit. Instead of investing a lump sum of your money, you are gradually building your portfolio over a period of time with a smaller-fixed amount of regular investment.

If you are still waiting to time the market why not just starts with one that may average out the market’s peaks and troughs? Let the impact of time work at your advantage

Dollar Cost Averaging

By investing a fixed amount of funds consistently every month over a period of time, dollar cost averaging benefits you regardless of price fluctuation. You purchase more units when the price is lower and fewer units when the price is higher.

For example, if you indicate that your investment amount for SIA is S$300. if the un-invested amount last month was S$8.70, then the investment amount for SIA this month will be S$302.28, which is the sum of S$300 plus the un-invested amount of S$8.70 less handling fee of S$6.42 (inclusive of GST).

Can I put the excess funds from the SBP into the Money Market Fund (MMF)?
No. The excess funds from the SBP cannot put into the Money Market Fund (MMF).
