Funding and Investing
Yes, depending on the date of investment the exact duration of your investment can differ in days. For example, if you started investing on 10th of November 2023 for a term of 3 months, your funds will be invested for 3 calendar months. 3 calendar months from 10th November 2023 ends on 10th February 2024 which is a non-business day. This would mean the portfolio will mature on the next business day which is 12th February 2023. Between 10th November 2023 and 12th February 2024, there are 95 days and hence your investment will earn returns for 95 days.
For another person whose investment started on 12th November 2023, the 3 calendar months end on 12th February 2024 which is a business day. Between these 2 days, there are only 92 days and hence the portfolio will earn returns corresponding to 92 days.View more
Firstly, Syfe invests your funds in fixed deposits with MAS-regulated banks giving you competitive guaranteed returns.
Funds processed before 3PM SGT on a business day will be invested on the same day. If your funds were processed after 3PM SGT, we will start the investment on the subsequent business day. Once the investment is successfully made, you will receive an email notification. Please note that this email is purely informational, requiring no further action on your part.View more
Clients who created a portfolio before 16 November must lock in the rate for your guaranteed portfolio at your convenience after your funds are processed into your portfolio unless the guaranteed rate is being revised in which case you need to wait for the updated rates that will be available shortly.
Starting 16th November, based on client feedback, Syfe is making the user experience around Cash+ Guaranteed seamless by investing funds added into a Guaranteed portfolio automatically. This allows your funds to be invested and earning returns without any delay. You no longer need to lock the rate manually.
From the day you created the portfolio, by the time your funds are processed into your portfolio, if the rate remains the same or has increased, your funds will get invested automatically at the prevailing rate. This ensures you get the best rate at all times. If the rate had dropped by the time your funds are processed, your funds won't be automatically invested. You will be notified of the rate decrease and given the choice to lock in at the current rate, withdraw funds, or reallocate to another portfolio.View more
Yes, you may transfer funds from any of your active Managed Portfolio /Brokerage account portfolios to Cash+ Guaranteed before the portfolio is locked. We will wait for all the ongoing transactions to be completed before investment begins – this experience will be similar to funding any other Managed portfolio. Once funds are processed into the app, the portfolio will get automatically locked and prepared for investment to start soon.
If you wish to add additional funds, you can do so by creating and funding into a new Cash+ Guaranteed portfolio.View more
After adding funds to a Cash+ Guaranteed portfolio, how long will it take me to move my funds out if needed?
For clients who created a portfolio before 16 November and have not locked in, you have the option to still change your investment decision by logging into the App and confirming the action you would like to take. You may refer to the instructions here.

After the Guaranteed portfolio begins investing, you will not have the option to make withdrawals until the fixed term ends. As we invest your funds into fixed deposits with the preferred rates we obtain from banks for the term that you have chosen, we are enabled to maximize the returns on your investment.
Subsequent top-ups made on or after 16th November to a portfolio that is already locked and invested will be placed by us into a new Guaranteed portfolio and automatically invested. By doing so, you create a “ladder” of maturity dates for your multiple Guaranteed portfolios, giving you the flexibility to access funds and take advantage of fluctuating interest rates.View more
