FAQ

What Is The Benefit of Joining A Mutual Fund?

Mutual Funds provide growth, diversification and access to investment management expertise for smaller investors.

How Do Mutual Funds Work?

Mutual funds are the embodciment of the saying, strength in numbers. 

Imagine you have US$100 to invest. This low amount will not garner much in terms of interest if you invest it in the market. Now imagine ten thousand people have US$100 to invest. If everyone pools their money into one fund, they will command a higher rate of return and start earning more individually. Also, now that there is more money to invest, bigger investment opportunities will open their doors to you. 

SAM can grow your money through our carefully stewarded mutual fund. We maximize profit and minimize risk to serve your ultimate financial goals.

What is investing? Is it the same as saving?

Investing is the act of putting money into various instruments with an expectation of earning a profit. Investments carry some degree of risk as well as the potential for greater rewards. 

Saving refers to putting funds in a traditional bank account where over time, it can decrease in value due to inflation. It does not carry any risk but also does not create the potential to earn any profit. 

How risky is investing?

The type of investment risk varies depending on the nature of the investment. Some investment options have very little risk whereas other may carry moderate amounts of risk. Please call and speak to one of our Investment advisors on further details on how to match your risk appetite to investment options.

Can I access any application forms online?
