Regular Investments

Grow your wealth step by step.

Every Month

Most people start investing on a regular basis, putting their excess monthly income to work for them. Regular investing is something that everyone has access to regardless of their income level and current savings. If you’re an Expat, you may have many of your living expenses paid for by your company and may want to invest your surplus monthly income effectively and in a tax-efficient manner.

The Benefits

Investing part of your excess monthly income on a regular basis into mutual funds is how many people access the financial markets in order to spread their risk, increase their potential gains and accumulate capital they can use for their future. This is called ‘unit cost averaging’ which needs three elements to work: (1) a fixed investment amount, (2) invested on a regular basis, often monthly, (3) over a decided period of time, usually medium to long term. The only variable element is the financial markets, as they rise and fall through each economic cycle. By investing on a regular basis you’ll be able to average out the market’s performance during your investment’s life time. The longer you continue to regularly invest for the more your capital will compound and the greater your final returns will be. To learn more about funds, go to fund investments.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this a good time to invest in the markets?

With regular investment strategies, it is always a good time to invest because with regular investing the idea is to take timing the markets out of the equation. The question is not whether it is a good time to invest, but are you actively investing.

Should I wait until the markets are less volatile?

With regular investing the objective is to use the volatility in the markets to your advantage and take out the need to time the markets. As the market falls in value one month you are purchasing more for the same amount, as the markets rise in value you purchase less. Over time you’ll average out the markets, and reduce the overall risk in your investment.
