Accredited Singapore investors can go digital with Jachin Capital

Jachin Capital enables direct investment in stocks in different countries with iAdvisor
• Twenty-eight portfolios representing diverse investment themes contain securities listed in different countries 
• In June 2015 a portfolio of 14 SGX-listed real estate investment trusts (REITS) and property stocks was successfully executed on iAdvisor

Jachin Capital, an independent fund manager in Singapore, has received a Capital Markets Services Licence from the Monetary Authority of Singapore. With the licence, Jachin Capital can now offer its digital investing platform – iAdvisor – to all accredited investors in Singapore. The company offers investment management solutions on a discretionary and nondiscretionary basis to accredited investors and private family offices based in the Asia-Pacific region. 

Starting from an investment theme or idea, Jachin Capital constructs portfolios based on a transparent rules-based framework. The portfolios are regularly reviewed and rebalanced.  For example, an investor can decide that the Chinese online consumer represents the wave of the future, choose to nvest in Jachin's China Online US portfolio and receive one-click access to investing in a basket of 20 US-listed Internet-related stocks domiciled in China, such as Alibaba and Baidu. 

Currently, iAdvisor boasts 28 portfolios with themes ranging from banking to security, robotics and driverless cars. The underlying baskets for each theme are stocks listed in five countries. This platform has been used by Jachin Capital for almost two years to manage its clients’ investments and has proven to be robust. Jachin Capital’s SMART Real Estate Singapore portfolio presently gives an annual dividend yield of 5% for example. 

Joyce Woo, founder and CEO of Jachin Capital said: “We are pleased that the Monetary Authority of Singapore has approved our application for a Capital Markets Services Licence to offer our iAdvisor platform in Singapore. We started our journey in 2014 with the belief that investors should have an efficient way of investing directly in the underlying stocks when they want to put their money into an investment idea. We also believe that investors should be empowered by knowledge. Thus, iAdvisor provides investors with 24x7 access to everything they need to know about their portfolios such as risk indicators, performance metrics and P&L*. 

“We are also glad to contribute to Singapore’s exciting, evolving fintech sector,’’ added Woo, who has extensive experience in private banking. iAdvisor was developed in collaboration with Hong Kong-based B2B fintech firm Quantifeed. Quantifeed provides digital wealth management solutions in Asia Pacific, with clients in Australia, mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore. 

Quantifeed CEO and co-founder Alex Ypsilanti, said: “Wealth management is rapidly progressing towards a more digital future and Quantifeed is at the forefront of this movement. Jachin Capital uses our technology and portfolio expertise to provide an engaging and personalised online investment experience to customers. Our partnership enables Jachin Capital to deliver wealth management at an affordable price and be a digital leader in the market.”
