What's the minimum amount I can invest on EZInvest? Are there any maximum and minimum limits on buying and selling units?
Different funds have different minimum investment amounts, depending on the minimum amount stipulated within the fund’s prospectus.
For redemption orders, the maximum unit selling limit is the number of tradable units hold by the customer.
For partial redemption orders, each fund has a minimum number of units needed to be maintained in customer’s holdings, which is stipulated in the fund’s prospectus. We can't proceed with any sell order that results in the total units of the customer’s holdings in that fund to fall below the minimum remaining units.
How much is the sales charge for Unit Trust subscription?
Each Unit Trust subscription will be charged at a flat 1% - 1.5% of the investment amount, depending on the fund type.
Are there any other fees for investing in Unit Trusts?
Yes, there are other fees charged by the fund house. These fees, which may include an annual management fee, trustee fee, admin fee, and so on, won't be deducted from your settlement account. However, they will be reflected in the market value of your holdings. You can see any fees imposed on your Fund details, Order details and Order review screens. Please refer to the fund offering documents for more details.

Do the funds provide a guaranteed return or any capital protection?
No, there's no guaranteed return or capital protected Unit Trust funds on this app. To understand the risk you’re taking, you can refer to the product risk level on the fund details page.

Low to Medium (2) - Low chance of losing a significant portion of your capital over the term of the investment, although this is not guaranteed. Expected to demonstrate moderately low level of price fluctuations over short periods of time.
Medium (3) - Moderate chance of losing a significant portion of your capital over the term of the investment, although this is not guaranteed. Expected to demonstrate moderate level of price fluctuations over short periods of time.

How often will a Unit Trust fund pay dividends to the investors?
The frequency of a Unit Trust fund's dividend payout depends on the respective fund's dividend policy. For details of the dividend payout, you can refer to the respective fund's offering documents.
The list of Unit Trusts in this app is not what I want. Where can I look for other investment products?
This app offers a selection of Shariah-compliant retail unit trust funds, but these don't reflect the full range of Shariah-compliant Unit Trust products offered by HSBC Amanah. If you’re looking for more Shariah-compliant Unit Trust funds or other investment products, visit the HSBC Amanah website or our branch for more information.
