Park your monies in one of our parking tools and you can buy funds instantly at Fundsupermart.com.
Features of a parking facility fund (PFF):
- No lag time! Investors who buy into other unit trusts and choose a PFF as the payment method will be able to transact at that day's price.
- Investors are able to invest into other unit trusts by indicating the absolute investment amount instead of calculating the number of units to be invested. For example, you can choose to buy Fund A using $10,000 from your PFF, instead of having to specify how many units from the fund you wish to use.
- Investors can choose to have proceeds from a fund sale placed directly into the PFF.
- First priority in terms of platform fee deduction, followed by the best-performing fund.
