Review your investment profile to make the wise decision

“Customer Investment Profile” questionnaire has been enhanced. Please renew it to understand your risk profile.

Understand Your Investment Profile

Your investment objective, experience, financial situation and attitude towards investment risk are important factors that affect any investment decision you may make. Therefore, understanding your investment profile is an important step in making a wise investment decision.

We have devised a “Customer Investment Profile” questionnaire. The results will be available as you submit the completed questionnaire. You will get the results on your general attitude towards investment risks by reference to a classification of 6 Risk Profiles – namely (1) Risk Averse, (2) Conservative, (3) Moderate, (4) Moderately Aggressive, (5) Aggressive and (6) Very Aggressive. Taking into account your Risk Profile and your personal circumstances, you could consider a range of investment products that fit your own classification.
