What’s the difference between OCBC RoboInvest’s service and an online broker’s service?
OCBC RoboInvest offers a holistic investment journey that focuses on not just a trade but on all your portfolios keeping in mind your appetite for risk. We will manage your investment portfolios with automated periodic rebalancing, while you can sit back and track your accounts 24/7 to watch your investment grow.
Why choose to invest with OCBC RoboInvest instead of keeping money in the bank?
Keeping money in your bank savings account only earns the interest rate on your deposits. If inflation is higher than the interest rate, it means you are losing out. With OCBC RoboInvest, your money will be invested in model portfolios according to your risk tolerance, thus possibly have a higher return in the long term.

What is the difference between OCBC RoboInvest’s service and OCBC Blue Chip Investment Plan (BCIP)?
OCBC’s Blue Chip Investment Plan (“BCIP”) aims to allow users to invest simply and gain exposure to the stock market. BCIP customers can select up to 20 share counters or ETF counters on the Straits Times Index for regular investment from as low as S$100. BCIP adopts the concept of Dollar Cost Averaging and customers can invest a chosen amount into their selected counters comfortably each month without timing the market. OCBC RoboInvest however, aims to provide customers with an easy way to steer their portfolio towards the strategy of their choice by following one preformulated strategies. By doing so, customers can gain exposure to Exchange-Traded Funds (“ETF”) and Equities, in Singapore and overseas markets. Unlike the BCIP, RoboInvest is not a regular savings plan and customers can curate the timing of investing their funds.
