What is Endowus CashUp?

Endowus CashUp are two cash management model portfolios the Endowus Investment Office has designed using money market and ultra-short duration bond funds to meet the different cash management and short-term liquidity needs of investors.

Endowus CashUp portfolios have a low investment minimum of US$100 (HK$800), no lock-up periods, no subscription or withdrawal fees, and no maximum caps. Investment yields are accrued daily and investors can subscribe and redeem their portfolios at any time.

Choosing between the two portfolios: CashUp Simple and CashUp Plus depends on expected investment timeline and risk appetite of investors — whether you would like to take very minimal risk in return for small gains, or whether you are willing to take slightly higher risk for better returns.

What are money market and short duration bond funds?

Money market and short duration bond funds are investment funds that hold high quality and low volatility fixed income instruments. There are no lock-ups for these funds. 


Money Market Fund (very low risk):

A money market fund invests primarily in a diversified portfolio of institutional bank fixed deposits, as well as high quality investment-grade and very short duration government and corporate debt instruments. They are diversified across varying issuers and tenures maintaining a weighted average duration of around 12 months or less. Money market funds are considered to be very low risk in nature.


Short Duration Bond Fund (low risk):

A short duration bond fund invests primarily in a diversified portfolio of institutional bank fixed deposits, as well as high quality and investment-grade short duration government and corporate debt instruments. They are diversified across varying issuers and tenures maintaining a weighted average duration of around 24 months or less. Short duration bond funds are higher risk than money market funds but still considered to be low risk in nature.

How do I choose between Endowus CashUp - Simple and CashUp - Plus model portfolios?
You should select a CashUp model portfolio based on your unique financial circumstances, as discussed above. If you need help in selecting a suitable portfolio for your needs, please contact our SFC-licensed advisors via email, Whatsapp, or an advisory call here.
What are the risks of investing a CashUp model portfolio?

CashUp portfolios are diversified investment portfolios of cash, money market, and short duration fixed income funds.

Difference between CashUp model portfolio and a bank deposit

When you make a deposit at a member bank of the Hong Kong Deposit Protection Scheme (DPS), it is insured for up to HK$500,000 in the event that the bank fails. As CashUp is an investment product and not a bank deposit, it is not insured by the DPS.
