Maybank Monthly Investment Plan

Maybank Monthly Investment Plan, investing does not have to be costly, complicated and time-consuming. With Monthly Investment Plan, there is now an affordable and simple way to invest. 

Start building a portfolio of blue chip stocks with as little as SGD100 a month and erase the need to time the market – just choose a counter, set an amount, and Monthly Investment Plan automatically buys that counter for you every month. This means you buy more shares when its price is low, and less shares when the price is high. Why Invest Through Monthly Investment Plan?

Extensive List of Securities in Multiple Markets
Select from over 230 stocks across 5 markets – Singapore, USA, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Thailand – including STI ETF, Ascendas REIT, Apple, Alphabet Inc., Alibaba and Tencent.

Hassle-Free, Regular Investing
Monthly Investment Plan automatically executes your investments every month based on your predetermined investment amount.  This means that you buy more stocks when the price is low and fewer stocks when the price is high. Your average price per stock could potentially be lower. This is known as Dollar-Cost Averaging. Dollar-Cost Averaging lessens the risk of investing a large amount in a single investment at the wrong time.

An Example of Dollar-Cost Averaging*:

Lump Sum Investment
Month Investment Amount Price of Blue Chip Share A Number of Shares Bought
February SGD400 SGD1 400
Total SGD400 400

Total invested = SGD400

Cost per share = SGD400/400 = SGD1

Dollar Cost Averaging Via Monthly Investment Plan
Month Investment Amount Price of Blue Chip Share A Number of Shares Bought
February SGD100 SGD1 100
March SGD100 SGD1.05 95
April SGD100 SGD0.8 125
May SGD100 SGD0.5 200
Total SGD400 520

 Total invested = SGD400

Cost per share = SGD400/520 = SGD0.77

Monthly Investment Plan could save you SGD1 – SGD0.77 = SGD0.23 per share!
