Monthly Stocks Savings Plan

“Monthly Stocks Savings Plan” is a flexible and convenient investment tool, enabling you to invest in a number of selected stocks with a monthly contribution amount of as low as HKD/CNY1,000. By leveraging on the advantage of “Dollar Cost Averaging”, you can be freed from the short term volatility of the stock market while balancing overall investment effectiveness. In addition, you can earn credit card gift points by settling the contribution payment with BOC Credit Card.

Low contribution amount

According to your own preference, you can invest in selected stocks provided by NCB. The minimum monthly contribution is as low as HKD/CNY1,000 (A maximum of two stocks can be invested with a monthly contribution amount of HKD/CNY1,000. For each additional stock, any additional contribution may be made in integral multiples of HKD/CNY500).

For example:

Maximum number of stock(s) invested Minimum monthly investment amount

2

HKD/CNY1,000

3

HKD/CNY1,500

4

HKD/CNY2,000

Preferential transaction fee

A maximum of 20 stocks can be selected in each plan. A handling fee equivalent to 0.25% of the total monthly contribution amount is charged for each plan. And the minimum charge is HKD/CNY50 per month (including brokerage fee, stamp duty, transaction levy and transaction charge). You can also enjoy waivers on safe custody and collection fees of shareholder entitlements (e.g. dividend) to save more.

Earning credit card gift points by making contribution via credit card

Monthly contribution can be made through autopay from your securities settlement account with the Bank or your credit card applied through the Bank and issued by BOC Credit Card (International) Limited ("BOC Credit Card"). There is no upper limit on the contribution amount. In addition, you can earn the credit card gift points by settling the contribution payment with BOC Credit Card. The longer the period of consecutive contributions, the higher gift point conversion rate.

Upper Limit of Gift Points

A maximum of 10,000 BOC Credit Card Gift Points
can be earned for each monthly contribution

Selling odd lot stocks at market price with more flexibility

You can sell any stocks maintained in the plan at market price (even if the number of shares is less than one lot) to enjoy a higher return. What’s more, you can adjust the monthly contribution amount or the stock portfolio according to your investment needs without handling charges, grasping every investment opportunity with greater flexibility.

Balancing overall investment effectiveness by Dollar Cost Averaging

The advantage of “Monthly Stocks Savings Plan” is based on the concept of “Dollar Cost Averaging”. You can acquire more shares when the stock price goes down and less shares when the stock price goes up. With this long term investment strategy, you do not have to worry about short term market fluctuations, but with more balanced overall investment effectiveness.
