You could invest with as low as HK$1,000 per month to build a top-notch portfolio of shares in well-established Hong Kong companies. It's not a dream, but it could help you realize yours.
Stock Regular Savings Plan
- You can own shares in high-quality blue chips with as low as HK$1,000 per month
- Benefits of "Dollar-cost-averaging" mean the average price of the stocks in your portfolio may be lower than the market price
- Wide selection of more than 50 blue chips and out-performed ETF
- Flexible investment options to adjust your monthly investment contribution or sell your stocks at the time that best suits your financial needs by various channels including online & mobile banking
A key benefit of Stock Regular Savings Plan is on the effect of “Dollar Cost Averaging”. It allows you to enjoy a lower average cost per shares bought and at the same time lessen your worries on the market ups and downs as the effect of short-term price fluctuations is reduced. With a fixed monthly investment amount, when the stock price goes down, more shares will be accumulated; on the other hand, when the stock price goes up, your contribution will buy fewer shares.

Example (For illustration only)
Assuming the client's regular investment amount is HKD1,000.
The investment amount after deduction of the handling fee (0.25% of the monthly investment amount with min. HK$50 per stock) will be used for purchasing securities.
The number of shares/units allocated to each customer will be rounded down to the nearest whole number of shares/units. Any remaining dollar amount will not be charged from client’s payment account.
|Regular contribution amt||Amount available for securities purchase*||Share price||No. of share purchased||Remaining amt not to be charged||Net investment amount|
|1st month||$1,000||$950.0||$2.0||475||$ -||$950.0|
|3rd month||$1,000||$950.0||$2.0||475||$ -||$950.0|
|4th month||$1,000||$950.0||$2.5||380||$ -||$950.0|
Average market price (sum of share prices ÷ number of months) = HK$2.42
Average cost per share (total net investments ÷ total number of shares purchased)
= HK$2.23 which is lower than the average market price
