All screens shown and reference to any asset class are for illustration or information only and should not be relied upon or construed as a recommendation of specific model portfolios. Projections shown are not indicative of future or likely performance of any portfolio. Investments in any portfolio involve risks, including the possible loss of the principal amount invested.

On your dashboard, you’ll have an overview of your portfolio to understand important details like performance and transactions in a single view.

Your current portfolio value is shown, along with unrealised* gains or losses highlighted in red or green.

* Unrealised gains or losses reflect the appreciation or depreciation of the market value of your assets. These gains or losses are not actualised, until the assets are actually sold.

You can also make top-ups and withdrawals by tapping on the respective shortcut icons.

Tap the portfolio name to enter “My Portfolio”, where you get a detailed breakdown of your current portfolio.

To understand how the portfolio may perform under various market conditions, UOBAM Robo-Invest provides projections based on three different conditions:

You can see how well your portfolio is projected to perform in a poor market (downturn), good market (upturn), or normal market conditions.

Disclaimer: Portfolio performance is subject to market volatilities, and past performance is not an indicator of future performance. The rate of return and risks varies across different assets and time periods.

Projections shown are not indicative of future or likely performance of any portfolio. Investments in any portfolio involve risks, including the possible loss of the principal amount invested.

Under Holdings, you can view the allocation of different assets that make up your portfolio. This asset allocation mix reflects your portfolio and its changes over time.

Each portfolio is designed with an asset allocation mix tailored to your risk preferences, and financial goals.

As your portfolio value changes, the weightage of different assets may shift. For example, when certain funds outperformed and other funds underperformed, the % allocation of the performing funds may go up while the underperforming funds shrink in the allocation.

UOBAM Robo-Invest provides automatic portfolio rebalancing to retain the intended asset allocation, on a quarterly basis. UOBAM Robo-Invest will also rebalance your portfolio when you make a top-up or withdrawal, to restore the asset allocation mix to its intended, optimised ratio.

You can inspect further details for each specific fund, at any time

Under the “Details” for each Fund, you can view the individual fund factsheets.
