3 months ago, I reviewed moomoo Cash Plus in a blog article. For a sector that reacts and moves in seconds, 3 months is indeed a long time. Between now and then, the Fed had surprised market observers by relentlessly hiking interest rates. As a result, we now expect higher interest rates across the different products (i.e. Singapore Savings Bonds, Singapore T-bills, Money Market Funds). Moomoo SG is not resting its laurels either and has upped its promotion to offer guaranteed 5%* p.a. return rewards on your Cash Plus subscription product.
My investment in moomoo Cash Plus
I invested my idle funds in moomoo Cash Plus sometime in September as I gradually took profit off some equity counters during the bear rally. This investment has done well so far, registering 0.5% return in just 2 months as shown in Diagram 1.
If I annualize it, the return would be approx. 3%, higher than the 7-day return of 2.14% when I made my initial investment. Given rising interest rates, Fullerton SGD Cash Fund’s updated 7-day annualized yield is now 3.21% as shown in Diagram 2.
Considering that redemption/withdrawal can be done relatively quickly, 3.21% return for an investment with high liquidity definitely deserves its place in an investor’s portfolio.
Well, this return can be improved further to a guaranteed 5%* p.a. return rewards if one participates in moomoo Cash Plus latest promotion. Whether you are a new user or an existing user, you can all participate in this limited-time promotion that is timed to coincide with the ongoing World Cup 2022 as well. Let me explain the promotion mechanics.
5%* p.a. Return Rewards and World Cup Campaign (for New Users)
New users who sign up from now till the end of the year will score a guaranteed, 5% p.a. Return Rewards (annualized) for 90 days simply by investing a minimum of S$100 in moomoo participating funds. Since this promotion is fairly attractive, the maximum investment eligible for this promotion is understandably capped at S$10,000. Here is a worked example:
$10,000 (maximum investment) X 5% (guaranteed return) X (90/365 days) = S$123.28.
Note that this is a guaranteed return during the 90-day period as moomoo SG will top up the difference to 5% vis-à-vis the actual returns of the underlying funds (both SGD Fullerton Cash Fund and CSOP USD Money Market Funds).
Most importantly, note that this 5%* guaranteed return is stackable with New User promotion which is valued at around S$220.
5% p.a. Return Rewards and World Cup Campaign (for Existing Users)
For Existing Users, they get to enjoy 5%* p.a. guaranteed return for 30 days for every referral made during the promotion period, capped at 6 referrals. With the cap of 6 referrals eligible for the promotion, this implies that the 5%* guaranteed return is capped to 6X30 = 180 days. Here’s a worked example to minimize any possible confusion:
$10,000 (maximum investment) X 5% (guaranteed return) X (180/365 days) = S$246.57.
For readers who are already existing account holders with moomoo SG, this is a good opportunity to boost your returns by referring this campaign to your friends.
