How do I buy a single fund?

Through our Fund Smart option, you can set up an investment goal with a single fund (unit trust) or multiple funds of your choice. Fund Smart is available for CPF, SRS and Cash investment. The funds available may differ based on the type of funding source. You can refer here for our curated list of best-in-class funds. Each Fund Smart goal can only have one funding source - CPF, SRS or Cash. You can have more than one Fund Smart goal in your Endowus account.

The minimum initial investment on the Endowus platform is S$1,000. After you have fulfilled the minimum initial investment requirement, the minimum investment amount for subsequent transactions is S$100. There is no minimum balance that must be maintained in Fund Smart.

 

When I built my Fund Smart goal, I selected Cash as my funding source. Can I later use my CPF-OA or SRS monies to invest in my Fund Smart goal?

No, a Fund Smart goal can only have one funding source. If you want to use another funding source to buy a fund, please set up another Fund Smart goal (note: a fund may not be available for all three funding sources - Cash, CPF-OA, SRS). There is no limit to the number of Fund Smart goals in an Endowus account.
