  1. Reflects our current high end probablistic 1-year return compiled using the Geometric Brownian Motion formula, a widely accepted quantitative model for projecting asset price movements and returns using recent years’ SGD NAV funds pricing data. After MoneyBox’s underlying fund returns are compiled using the GBM formula, a blended net projected return is calculated. This is done by applying the weights of the 2 underlying funds; 30% for UOB United SGD Money Market Fund Class B and 70% for UOB United SGD Fund Class B Acc. (net of all fund level expenses). Return is net of 0.64% estimated total Fund level fees factored into daily NAV prices of 2 underlying funds. Fund level fees are determined via proportional blending of 2 fund expense ratios, where related fees are found in latest fund prospectuses. As no trailer fees (rebates) are received from the funds’ managers, no further adjustments are required.
  2. Management Fee of 0.10% p.a. waived until further notice. MoneyBox also does not charge any deposit or withdrawal fees.
  3. SquirrelSave uses institutional classes of funds to benefit from lower underlying fees versus retail classes. Due to their lower costs, institutional classes do not currently offer fee rebates (trailer fees). Any future trailer fees received will be passed on to clients’ accounts.

Important Note: MoneyBox projected gross returns may fluctuate up or down, based in part on the performance of the underlying funds as well other inputs of the GBM methodology. As such, actual returns delivered may be lower or higher than the prevailing projected return presented. This performance, in turn, is dependent on Singapore’s economic health and trajectory as well as the 12-month trajectory of global interest rates. The underlying GBM model is reviewed and updated quarterly along with the projected return. When applicable, we may review and re-optimise the MoneyBox portfolio allocation (including the selection of underlying funds within) to attempt to maintain the highest possible projected return within a given economic environment.
