Common Questions

What is the minimum amount you can start with?

Investors can start with as low as USh 100,000. However, we realize everyone’s circumstances are different. You could decide to define a goal (e.g. retirement) and invest a lump sum amount at the beginning. Alternatively, one can start with a modest minimum amount and periodically add to their investment account (e.g. monthly contributions) over the investment horizon.
