What investment options are available for a retail investor?
All our Customers are considered Retail Investors unless they choose to opt-in to be treated as Accredited Investors.
Customers in India can use their Kristal Account to invest in a customised selection of ETF (Exchange Traded Fund) based Kristals.
Customers from the rest of the world will be able to invest using their Kristal Freedom Account.
Do my Kristal investments accrue dividends?
We have over 200 Kristals investors can choose from. Some Kristals accrue dividends, which are added to the cash holding of the Kristal, if any, increasing the value of the Kristal.
Such cash could be deployed to invest in more assets within the Kristal when the Kristal needs to be rebalanced.
Is there a minimum amount that I need to invest?
There is no minimum amount prescribed. You could start by investing in 1 unit of the lowest value Kristal too.
We would recommend however, you begin with USD 5,000/- to be able to build a well-diversified portfolio optimised to match your investor profile and risk appetite.
Please do consider the applicable charges applied by your Bank. Transfers below a certain amount may not be very cost-efficient.
Clients remitting from a Bank account in India, please note your Bank may choose to review remittances of small amounts in greater detail which could result in failure or delay of funds reaching your investment account. We have seen this to be the case with amounts less than US $1,000.
Is there a lock-in period for the investments?
There is usually no lock-in period for any Kristal. However, some Fund Kristals (available to Accredited Investors only) may be subject to a lock-in period.
All information relating to a Kristal can be found in the details and other sections.
