And the minimum charge is HK$ / RMB50 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.

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.

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.
