Frequently Asked Questions
How should you compare your StashAway returns to the returns of your other investments?
A single return figure (Time-Weighted Returns vs Money-Weighted Returns) does not tell the whole story of how well a portfolio performs.
Returns are one thing but the level of risk exposure your portfolio has in achieving those returns is an entirely different matter.
Remember to consider how much risk your portfolio manager exposes your money to in the name of getting your returns.
How did StashAway choose the funds that are in my portfolio?
StashAway chooses the best-in-class ETFs on your behalf. We chose the largest, most liquid, most tradable, and most cost-effective ETFs with the lowest tracking error to the index and a sufficiently long track record.
We choose simple ETFs, which means they have no leverage or complex payoffs and have no ETNs to avoid credit risk of issuers.
How much experience does your investment team have?
Our Chief Investing Officer, Freddy Lim who leads our investment team, has over 15 years of experience in cross-asset investing and portfolio management.
Freddy joined StashAway after years of investment expertise as MD and Global Head of Derivatives Strategy at Nomura. He gained his strong background in cross-asset portfolio at Millennium Capital Management and as APAC Head of G10 rates strategy at Citi.
After his Bachelor’s Degree in Econometrics and Quantitative Economics at Monash University, he started his steep career as Head of Interest Rate Strategy at Morgan Stanley Japan.
Is there a minimum deposit or fixed amount I need to invest?
No minimum deposit amount required and you have the option to deposit in AED or USD.
You have full discretion on how much and when you want to invest, including no minimum balance to maintain the account. You may also skip a month or two, resume, and withdraw whenever you wish. All without incurring charges or penalties.
