Selection Criteria

Endowus has selected the LionGlobal Infinity Global Stock Index Fund as it allows for broad exposure to large and mid-cap companies across developed markets, and gives investors, including CPF investors, the access to a low-cost, diversified portfolio of global equities. 

With the aim to replicate the MSCI World Index as closely as possible, the Fund holds a massive portfolio of more than 1580 names across large and mid-sized company stocks in the developed markets (which is almost replicative of MSCI World consisting of about 1580 companies), making it one of the most market-representative and diversified funds in the universe. The Fund is designed to deliver the benchmark’s return at the lowest cost possible, which is enabled by the manager’s wide presence around the world to facilitate efficient trading and index replication, and attempts to add value by anticipating index changes and trading changes one to two days before and after the change. The resulting portfolio is highly accurate and low-cost, and we expect investors to benefit from the exposure to global markets and achieve a cost-efficient return over the long term.

The Fund is managed by the team at Vanguard and wrapped by LionGlobal Investors for access to Singaporean investors, including CPF members -- we have enabled this by working hard with Vanguard and LionGlobal to include the Fund into CPFIS List A, as well as through our industry-first approach of rebating 100% of trailer fees back to our clients that brings the Fund TER within the CPF guidelines. With this, the Fund is one of the two only passive index funds available for CPF investing, and is available exclusively for CPF investing at Endowus (the other fund is the LionGlobal Infinity US 500 Stock Index Fund, which is also available exclusively on Endowus for CPF investing).

Additionally, the Fund is a Singapore-domiciled fund which is more tax-efficient, and denominated in Singapore dollars to make an FX-efficient portfolio for investors based in Singapore, matching your assets with your future liabilities and removing unnecessary FX risk and cost. All in all, the Fund is another example of the continuous efforts made by Endowus to improve the risk-adjusted performance and cost-efficiency of our clients’ portfolios.
