For general investing, Endowus charges an Access Fee of 0.40% per year, which includes portfolio advice & creation, unlimited transactions, all at your convenience on the Endowus platform.
For example, if your account has an average value of S$10,000, Endowus will transparently make S$40 per year from you.
For Cash Smart, the Endowus Access Fee is 0.05% per year.
Endowus has no sales fees, and 100% trailer fee rebates. Unlike other platforms, we do not collect kickbacks from fund managers. We are only paid by you, the client we serve.
Paying the Access Fee is seamless and transparent. We charge our Access Fee on a quarterly basis based on your daily average total assets under advice for that quarter. We will seamlessly redeem part of your SRS investment portfolio, equivalent to your fees due for the quarter.
It is much lower cost to buy, maintain, and grow your money with Endowus than it would be to replicate them on a popular “low cost, no fee” fund platform. Endowus also rebates 100% of trailer fees, and gives access to the institutional share class of funds, which typically are half the cost of a retail fund share class.
For example, when you buy the PIMCO Income Fund at a private bank or broker, you may be sold the retail share class, which has a total expense ratio of 1.45%, plus any sales fees (typically 1-5%), plus any custodian fees (typically 0.20% to 0.50% per year). This means that you may have a total cost of ownership in the first year of over 3%.
With Endowus, we access the institutional share class of the same fund, which has a total expense ratio of 0.55%, no sales fees, no transaction fees, and the Endowus Access Fee of 0.40% per year. This means you have a total cost of ownership of 0.95%.
You can open an SRS account if you are:
- A Singaporean, Permanent Resident (PRs) or foreigner working in Singapore
- At least 18 years old
- Not an undischarged bankrupt
There are three SRS operators (UOB, DBS & OCBC). You can register for an SRS account with any of them on their online platforms. You can fund your SRS account by internal bank transfer.
Once you have have your SRS account number, you only have to link it to your Endowus account and start investing!
