About the session

Amid the current environment of elevated short-end yields, investors are increasingly considering more liquid options such as money market and short-duration fixed income funds. Their stable yields during market fluctuations appeal to risk-averse investors, providing lower-risk opportunities without exposure to riskier assets.

Endowus Cash Smart portfolios can be especially beneficial in such situations as investors seek to reallocate their fixed income or cash holdings into these short-duration investments — especially as it’s fully flexible with no lockups and no limits.

As part of Endowus' commitment to optimising your portfolios, we are implementing several enhancements to the Cash Smart Enhanced and Cash Smart Ultra Portfolios in our latest recommended portfolio change (RPC).

Endowus warmly invites you to a live interactive webinar with Samuel Rhee, Chairman and Chief Investment Officer,  together with So Sin Ting, Chief Client Officer, as they share more about the latest upgrades made to your Cash Smart portfolios and discuss: 

  1. Key improvements of the Endowus Cash Smart Enhanced & Ultra portfolios
  2. Is cash still king? What the latest yield environment means for your cash holdings
  3. Why the Cash Smart portfolios are a popular cash alternative to savvy investors
  4. How to accept and proceed with these new Cash Smart upgrades 

There will be a Q&A segment at the end of the session. Submit your questions ahead of time here.
