What is a Unit Trust?

A Unit Trust (also known as a collective investment scheme) is a pool of money managed collectively by a fund manager. You invest in a Unit Trusts by buying units in a trust. Your money will be pooled with that of other investors and invested in a portfolio of assets to achieve the investment objective of the Unit Trusts. When a Unit Trusts is first launched for sale, the price of each unit is usually fixed. If you invest in an existing Unit Trusts, the price of each unit will be based on the market value of the underlying assets that the Unit Trusts has invested in. The number of units you will receive depends on the amount of your investment less the sales charge you have to pay.

As Unit Trusts are generally considered medium to long-term investments, you should have the financial resources to stay invested in them for a reasonable period of time so as to gain the full benefits. If you need to convert your investments to cash in the short-term to meet specific needs, a Unit Trusts may not be suitable for you.

What do I need to start investing in Unit Trusts on Citibank Online?

You will need a Citibank checking / savings account and a Unit Trusts account. You will also need to complete an Investment Risk Profile to determine if Unit Trusts is a suitable investment product for you.

What are the Unit Trusts functions available on Citibank Online?

Can I buy Unit Trusts with my joint accounts?

Yes. Take note that your joint account needs to be assessed for Customer Knowledge Assessment. Please contact your Personal Banker or Relationship Manager for assistance.

Is the Net Asset Value ("NAV") indicative at the point of transaction?

Yes. As NAV is computed once a day based on the closing market prices of the securities within the Fund's portfolio, the NAV that is reflected at the point of transaction reflects the last available historical price. If your transaction is placed and accepted before the Fund's cut off time, the transaction will be processed and priced for the same day. If the transaction is placed and accepted after the cut off time, the transaction will only be processed and priced for the next working day. The actual NAV will be available 2 business days after the transaction date.

What is a Regular Savings Plan (RSP)?

You can set up a Regular Savings Plan online to automatically subscribe into an investment fund on a monthly basis at a minimum amount of $100 over a period of time. The debit date indicated during the set up will take place unless it falls on a non-business day, in which case, debiting of funds will take place on the next business day.

When will my buy orders be completed?

All buy orders will be completed within 5 business days (T+5) from the day they are transacted, T being the transaction date of the buy order. Once the transaction process is completed, the units of the funds will appear under the investment holdings in your account. All units are priced based on the Net Asset Value of the transaction date.

What is the cut off time for an online order to be processed on Citibank Online?

The cut off time to process an online order is 4pm (Singapore time) on any business day. Orders placed after 4pm on a business day will be processed on the next business day. Orders placed on a non-business day will be processed on the next business day.

How long does it take for redemption proceeds to be settled?

Can I buy a foreign currency denominated share class of the Unit Trusts?
