11.6 You also acknowledge that we may have an interest in the subject of the report or recommendation, may be a counterparty to any Investments entered into by you and/or may otherwise benefit from your Investments.
12.1 Any statements and any other documents sent will be sent to you through a URL link to the Platform which will be provided to you via electronic means to the electronic mail address indicated by you at Account Opening or edited subsequently through the “Change of Email procedure” available on the Platform or directly to such electronic mail address. You agree and acknowledge that such documents will be made available for viewing on the Platform, and therefore, you may download, save or print the documents for your subsequent reference.
12.2 You agree to verify the correctness of all details contained in each statement, or any document sent to you and inform us within 14 days from the date of such document of any discrepancies, omissions, or errors. Upon the expiry of this period, the date of such document shall be conclusive evidence against you (save for manifest or clerical error) without further proof, except as to any alleged errors so notified, that such details are correct, but subject always to our right to amend or delete from time to time, any details wrongly inserted by us as set out in Clause 12.3 of these Terms below. Except as provided in this clause, and provided that we are not fraudulent or in wilful default, we shall be free from all claims in respect of any Account or the details of the Transactions or Services contained in such documents.

13.1 We are entitled to convert any sum received by us (whether for credit into your Account or Wallet or in payment of any sum due to us) to the currency of the Account or Wallet or the currency in which payment is to be made, as the case may be, at a rate of exchange determined by us at the relevant time.
13.2 We may, at any time at a rate determined by us in our sole and absolute discretion, convert any amount in any Account or Wallet or standing to your credit to any other currency for the purpose of carrying out your Instructions or exercising our rights under these Terms. Exchange rate losses and the costs of conversion shall be borne by you.
14.1 We will hold monies received on your account in a client monies account which we hold on trust on behalf of you as well as our other customers (“customer account”). This means that your monies in the trust account will be commingled with the monies of our other customers. The risks of this commingling is that it is administratively and operationally difficult, if not impossible (in view of the constant fluctuation of the aggregate balance in such account), to account separately for each of our customers’ respective interest due on their respective cash balances in the customer account as interest will be received on an aggregate basis. This customer account will be held with a bank, Custodian or other financial institution in accordance with Applicable Laws.
14.2 In the event of insolvency of the bank, Custodian or other financial institution holding the customer trust account, you understand that you may not be able to fully recover your monies. Further, as your monies are commingled with those of other customers in the same account, you may potentially be exposed to the losses of other customers.
14.3 We may, for the purpose of depositing monies received on your account which are denominated in a foreign currency, maintain a customer account with a Custodian outside Singapore in accordance with Applicable Laws. This Custodian will be appropriately licensed, registered or authorised to conduct banking business in the respective jurisdiction in which the account is maintained. In such case, you understand that the laws and practices relating to trust accounts in the relevant jurisdiction may differ from the laws and practices in Singapore. Such differences mean that your monies may not enjoy the same level of protection as accorded to monies that are held in Singapore. Depending on the jurisdiction, this may affect your ability to recover the funds deposited in the customer account.
14.4 You acknowledge that where your monies are held with such bank, Custodian, other financial institution and/or otherwise passed on to an Intermediary, as described in Clause 15 of these Terms, the manner in which your monies may be held in different entities may be different.
15.1 We may use or engage a person (including a nominee, agent, broker, custodian, fund manager, market-maker, exchange and/or other third party) (“Intermediary“) to, directly or indirectly:
(a) execute or clear Transactions;
(b) purchase and/or manage Investments; and/or
(c) hold or custodise any of your funds or Assets.
15.2 Provided that we have selected such Intermediary in good faith, you agree we shall have no liability or responsibility for any act, omission, insolvency, negligence, failure, delay or default of the Intermediary. Our Intermediaries may also appoint further custodians, sub-custodians, trustees, registrars, administrators, nominees and/or agents as may be necessary or expedient to provide the relevant services or Investments to us. You agree that we shall have no liability or responsibility in relation to any actions taken by such persons or these further appointments by our Intermediaries which are beyond our reasonable control.
15.3 You agree that where we use another Intermediary to execute or clear your Transactions, purchase or manage your Investments or hold or custodise your funds or Assets, we may have to accept sole and principal responsibility to the Intermediary for the Investments and/or executed Transaction. Accordingly, you shall indemnify us against any and all action which we deem in good faith necessary to ensure that we will not be in default of our obligation or responsibilities under these Terms. The foregoing indemnity in our favour is in addition to any other right that we may have (whether expressly provided as between us or implied by law) and will continue to apply whether or not you may be in actual or anticipatory default.
15.4 In view of the fact that we may have accepted principal responsibility and/or liability to Intermediaries, you also acknowledge and consent to the fact that there is a risk that such Intermediaries may regard any Investments which we purchase on your behalf, as investments which we purchase for ourselves. This may in some instances result in prejudice to you. For example, there is a risk that the Intermediaries may attempt to use your Investments to satisfy our obligations or obligations of our other customers. You accept that this is a necessary risk of dealing in such jurisdictions through us.
15.5 You agree that neither us nor our Intermediaries shall provide any margin facility to you in respect of the Investments.
15.6 Without prejudice to any other provision in these Terms, you agree that:
(a) we may, whether directly or indirectly (through Custodians or otherwise), hold Investments purchased for you in an omnibus custody account, aggregated with other Investments of our other customers, and/or the customers of these Custodians, and such Investments may not be held in your name. This means that your Investments will be commingled with the assets of our other customers and/or the customers of these Custodians. Given such commingling, the Investments may be registered collectively in our name, the name of the Custodian, a sub-custodian and/or any other third party and your entitlements may not be identifiable as separate certificates, titles or electronic records. You agree that if there are any dividends, interests, rights, benefits or other proceeds in relation to your Investments resulting from such commingling, we shall have full discretion as to the allotment of such dividends, interests, rights, benefits or other proceeds;
(b) In the event of insolvency or default of the Custodian, you understand that you may not be able to fully recover your Investments held in the omnibus custody account. Any shortfall in the Investments may be shared among you and our other customers and/or the customers of the Custodians pro rata. As your Investments are commingled with those of other customers in the same account, you may potentially be exposed to the losses of other customers;
(c) provided that we have selected or engaged such Custodian in good faith, we shall not be liable to you for any and all loss suffered or incurred by you as a result of any act, omission or insolvency of such Custodian;
(d) where Investments are denominated in a foreign currency, the Investments may be held in an omnibus custody account with an entity which is licensed, registered or authorised to act as a custodian in the country or territory where such Investments are held. In such case, you understand that the laws and practices relating to custody accounts in the relevant jurisdiction may differ from the laws and practices in Singapore. Such differences mean that your Investments may not enjoy the same level of protection as accorded to Investments that are held in Singapore. Depending on the jurisdiction, this may affect your ability to recover the Investments deposited in the custody account; and
(e) your Investments may be treated as fungible with other Investments in the omnibus custody account and therefore, we are not obliged to deliver any specific Investments to you and may instead sell the Investments at your expense and transfer to your Account the proceeds of such sale (if any).
15.7 You acknowledge that where your Investments are held with different Intermediaries and/or appointees of our Intermediaries, the manner in which your Investments may be held in different entities may be different.
16.1 The fees payable by you to us for our Services are accessible at our FAQs webpage, as may be amended from time to time (“Fees“). Without prejudice to any other provision in these Terms, we reserve the right to include in the Fees any liabilities, costs and expenses which we incur under these Terms.
16.2 You shall make all payments due under these Terms free and clear of, and without deduction, withholding or set-off on account of, any tax or levy or any other charges present and future.
16.3 You shall be liable for any goods and services tax, value-added tax or any other tax of a similar nature chargeable by law on any payment you are required to make to us. If we are required by law to collect and make payment in respect of such tax, you will indemnify us against such payments.
16.4 We may deduct your Account with the full amount of any Fees payable by you, or any other monies owed by you to us pursuant to any liability of any nature arising in respect of the Account or otherwise. For this purpose, we may withdraw and collect uninvested cash in your Account (if any) and/or sell your Assets and collect the proceeds from such sale.
17.1 We may enter into agreements with Intermediaries, deal in products and investments that you are invested in, or provide services to others whose interest may conflict or compete with yours, or otherwise be placed in a position of conflict. You agree that there may be circumstances when we or our Affiliates act in such capacities or are in such positions of conflicts where we may be remunerated, make profit, receive fees, commissions, rebates, discounts and/or other benefits. You consent and agree that we and/or our Affiliates may continue to enter into such Transactions and/or Investments without further reference to you despite such position of conflict, that we shall have no obligation to disclose such circumstances to you and you agree not to make any claim for such fees, commissions, rebates, discounts and/or other benefits. You also agree not to hold us responsible for any loss of profit or damage that may result from such conflict.
17.2 Without prejudice to the generality of Clause 17.1 of these Terms, you acknowledge and agree that we may receive commissions, rebates, benefits or remuneration in relation to the underlying investments that we may make as part of our Services. You consent to this position of conflict and agree that we have no obligation to disclose or be liable to account to you for any amount of fees, profits, remuneration or compensation received by us, our Affiliates and/or any other person connected with us and agree to release us from any and all claims against us arising from any conflicts of interest and/or receipt or retention of such fees, profits, remuneration or compensation, subject to any Applicable Laws.
18.1 For so long as you owe monies or obligations (of any nature and however arising) to us, you may not withdraw your Assets without our consent. We may at any time withhold any Assets pending full settlement of all such monies or obligations owed by you.

This document is not intended to be an exhaustive description of the risks involved but rather a general statement of the risks commonly associated with making investments of this nature and in this manner. Please read this document carefully before making an investment decision. Investors are advised to read the underlying relevant offering documents for more detailed disclosure of the risks associated with their investment. This document is no substitute for the product descriptions and the risk factors disclosed in the offering documentation for any underlying funds or other investments we may invest in on your behalf.
There are various risks associated with investing in capital markets. General risks associated with investing are as follows:
Each potential investor must determine the suitability of an investment with us in light of their own circumstances. Prior to making an investment decision, an investor should fully understand the risks and merits of such investment and to make their own determinations that such investment is suitable with the acknowledgement that they are able to assume the risk.
There are general risks to which all asset classes, financial instruments and financial services are exposed to and which may lead to a financial loss. Some of these risks are:
Our principal service is discretionary investment management where your portfolio is managed in accordance with certain metrics, including the risk level, your time horizon, the amounts invested, the time and frequency at which you choose to invest. This means that we have discretion over both asset allocation and the selection of underlying investments or assets held in your portfolio. Your portfolio and its performance may be specific to you, even when compared to a portfolio with a broadly similar mandate. We have a core investment and asset allocation process and regularly monitor portfolios to ensure they behave within an acceptable range of risk. Customer performance can differ from the average return depending on how frequently you invest, the amounts invested, your risk level and the period of investment.
There are additional risks that may arise in respect of specific asset classes.
We invest primarily in mutual funds which may be open-ended or closed-end funds. Open-ended funds are a collective investment scheme which can issue and redeem shares at any time. It contrasts with a closed-end fund, which typically issues all available shares at the launch of the fund, with such shares usually only being tradable between investors thereafter.
A mutual fund is made up of a pool of money from investment which an asset management company invests into stocks, bonds or other financial assets. The collective financial strength of these investors makes it possible to make investments across sectors, industries and markets and offers the benefit of greater diversification and professional investment expertise.
However, investments in mutual funds are associated with the following specific risks in addition to the general risks discussed above:
1.1 You have requested and wish to invest in AutoInvest. This SCHEDULE 3 applies to any Transactions or Investments in relation to the AutoInvest product offered by us and should be read with the General Terms and Conditions and such other terms as agreed between you and us.
1.2 In the event of any inconsistency between these Specific Terms in this Schedule and any other terms, these Specific Terms shall prevail specifically in relation to AutoInvest.
1.3 This Schedule may be amended in accordance with the Terms from time to time and is in addition to any other agreements which you may have with us.
2.1 The following terms shall have the following meanings in this Schedule, where the context permits:
has the meaning ascribed in Clause 3.1 of this Schedule;
a Product offered by GrabInvest which is an automated investment plan to encourage creating an investing habit where each time you carry out Eligible Grab Transactions, a specified amount will be transferred to us to be invested into several underlying Investments selected by us, subject to the terms and conditions as set out in this Schedule read with the Terms;
means a balance representing the sum of the value of your underlying Investments that are currently held through your investment in AutoInvest, as determined on a daily basis by multiplying the last available market price based on information we receive from our Intermediaries with the number of units of the underlying investments that you have invested in;
“Eligible Grab Transaction”
means any transport, GrabFood, GrabMart, or GrabPay transaction with merchants (whether via QR Code or with your GrabPay Card) made through the Grab App where the payment method is credit or debit card, GrabPay Wallet or GrabPay Card, and/or such other transactions as we may determine from time to time;
designated amount of money you have indicated via the GrabApp that you wish to invest into AutoInvest each and every time you carry out an Eligible Grab Transaction; and

3. AUTOMATIC TRANSFERS
3.1 When you select AutoInvest under the “Invest” tile (managed by GrabInvest) on the Grab App, you may indicate your preferred Transfer Amount to be transferred to and invested in AutoInvest. An AutoInvest calculator may be provided to you that will calculate your potential investment amounts from investing in AutoInvest based on the Transfer Amount and the estimated frequency of your Eligible Grab Transactions (which shall be estimated based on the frequency of payments you have made through your Grab App over a prescribed period or the frequency of payments made by users on the Grab Platform). Once you have invested in AutoInvest, we may offer you other features such as the ability to view the Current Value of your portfolio and indicative returns in relation to your AutoInvest investment plan. You understand and agree that any such calculations, estimates, projections and indicative returns are for illustration purposes only. They are not representations and shall not bind us. Any quotations, comments, analysis, estimates, forecasts, opinions or other similar information provided are limited to certain assumptions and parameters. Therefore, they may be subject to change without notice and we give no warranty as to its accuracy, completeness or reliability.
3.2 Should you wish to proceed to invest in AutoInvest, you may click “Get Started” on the AutoInvest page. By clicking “Get Started” and/or electing to invest in AutoInvest, you authorise and provide us with a standing instruction to automatically transfer the Transfer Amount via the Grab App from your GrabPay Wallet to be invested with us in AutoInvest each and every time you carry out an Eligible Grab Transaction via the Grab App (“Automatic Transfers“) without further reference to you.
3.3 Subject to Clause 3.5 of this Schedule, such standing instruction to carry out such Automatic Transfers as described in Clause 3.2 of this Schedule will remain effective and unchanged unless we have accepted your cancellation request in accordance with this Clause 3.4 of this Schedule. Barring the foregoing, we will proceed with the Automatic Transfer(s) without further confirmation or acknowledgement from you and such Automatic Transfer(s). Your instructions in relation to any prior Automatic Transfers (if any) are irrevocable.
3.4 A cancellation request may be made in accordance with the following terms:
(a) you may request a cancellation of your Automatic Transfer in accordance with the method as prescribed on the Platform where the status of the Automatic Transfer is indicated on the Platform as “In Queue”;
(b) your cancellation request shall only be effective upon our confirmation to you through the Platform that such cancellation has been accepted and upon such terms as indicated in our confirmation to you (if any);
(c) where your cancellation request has been accepted, we will refund the Transfer Amount to your GrabPay Wallet. You agree and acknowledge that we will not refund the Transfer Amount via any other payment methods;
(d) after the status of your Automatic Transfer has changed and no longer indicates “In Queue”, your instruction to carry out the relevant Automatic Transfer is irrevocable. You agree and acknowledge that in such case, you can no longer cancel your Automatic Transfer; and
(e) our acceptance of your cancellation request in relation to an Automatic Transfer as described in this Clause 3.3 shall not affect any other scheduled Automatic Transfers. If you wish to deactivate the Automatic Transfers, you may do so in accordance with Clause 3.5 of this Schedule.
3.5 You may amend the Transfer Amount, deactivate the Automatic Transfers and/or close, deactivate or terminate your investment in AutoInvest in accordance with such instructions as may be set out on the Grab App or Platform. Any such amendments, deactivation or closure to your AutoInvest plan shall only be effective after you have received confirmation from the Platform or the Grab App that such amendment has been agreed to and confirmed by us. Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, any amendments to the Transfer Amount, shall only be effective in respect of Eligible Grab Transactions and Automatic Transfers occurring after you receive confirmation from the Platform or Grab App that such amendment has been agreed to and confirmed by us and any Automatic Transfers prior to such agreement or confirmation shall continue unaffected by your requested amendment.
3.6 It is your responsibility to ensure that you have sufficient balance in your Wallet at all times to enable the Automatic Transfers to occur. If there is insufficient balance in your Wallet, both your Automatic Transfer and your Eligible Grab Transaction may be unsuccessful. The Automatic Transfer and Eligible Grab Transaction will be treated as separate transactions and where there is insufficient balance in your Wallet, priority will be given to the Eligible Grab Transaction provided that there are sufficient funds available for the Eligible Grab Transaction to proceed.
(a) If insufficient funds are available in the Wallet for the Eligible Grab Transaction, both the Eligible Grab Transaction and Automatic Transfer will fail.
(b) If there are sufficient funds available in the Wallet for the Eligible Grab Transaction but not for the Automatic Transfer, the Eligible Grab Transaction will proceed but the Automatic Transfer will fail. Therefore, you may fail to make an Automatic Transfer even if your Eligible Grab Transaction is successful.
3.7 Failure in the Automatic Transfer may lead to a disruption in your AutoInvest plan and/or failed Transactions. This may mean that you may not achieve the indicative returns projected. You understand and agree that we will not be responsible or liable in any way for any such consequences of any nature whatsoever and you agree not to take any action or to release us from any claims whatsoever in relation to any such consequences.
4.INVESTING IN UNDERLYING INVESTMENTS
4.1 You will be informed that your funds have been “Invested” once we have made the underlying Investments. After we have successfully made the underlying Investments, you will receive daily updates informing you of the Current Value of your portfolio, including the transactions in relation to the underlying Investments.
4.2 You agree and acknowledge that we have sole and absolute discretion in selecting the underlying Investments for your AutoInvest plan. While we may inform you of the underlying funds or Investments your funds have been invested in, including your holdings in the relevant underlying funds or Investments, your Investment is managed as a portfolio. You are unable to select which underlying funds or Investments your funds are invested in or select which underlying funds or Investments you wish to subscribe to or redeem or change the allocation in respect of such fund or Investment. You agree and authorise us to add to, substitute, replace and/or invest in such other funds or Investments and to rebalance the portfolio, including adjusting the allocations in the underlying funds or Investments, as we may deem fit in our sole and absolute discretion from time to time.
4.3 For the avoidance of doubt, we may rebalance your portfolio and readjust the allocation of your assets in the underlying funds or Investments at our sole and absolute discretion. You are not required to instruct us, confirm or cancel any rebalancing.
5.1 You may withdraw or exit your investments with us at any time in accordance with such procedures as we may implement via the Platform from time to time, including by raising a withdrawal request. When you make a withdrawal request, you will be able to indicate the amount you wish to withdraw (“Withdrawal Sum“). The Withdrawal Sum must be equal to or less than the Current Value of your portfolio when you raise the withdrawal request and at least S$1.00 or above.
5.2 Where you raise a withdrawal request, you authorise us to redeem, sell or liquidate your underlying Investments of your AutoInvest plan to raise the Withdrawal Sum, subject to Clause 5.3 of this Schedule. For the avoidance of doubt, the exact amount or units of the underlying Investments which shall be redeemed, sold or liquidated shall be determined in our sole and absolute discretion based on the market price in order to provide you with the Withdrawal Sum.
5.3 Where the Withdrawal Sum is 90% or more of the Current Value or if following the withdrawal, the Current Value will be less than S$1.00, estimated based on the last available market price from the date the withdrawal request is made, a full withdrawal will be triggered such that we will redeem, sell or liquidate all your underlying Investments and withdraw 100% of your AutoInvest plan. For such full withdrawal, you authorise us to redeem, sell or liquidate all your underlying Investments in your AutoInvest plan at the next available market price after the redemption orders are sent to the Intermediaries. As the market price will only be published after we place orders to redeem, sell or liquidate all your underlying Investments, you agree that the final amount you may receive from the proceeds of such redemption, sale or liquidation may be more or less than the Current Value, as indicated when you make the withdrawal request or otherwise. You agree, acknowledge and understand that under no circumstances shall we be liable to you should the proceeds received be less than the Current Value, as indicated when you make the withdrawal request or otherwise.
5.4 You may cancel a withdrawal request where the status of this request is indicated on the Platform as “In Queue”. Such cancellation request must be made in accordance with such method as prescribed on the Platform and shall be effective once accepted by us or at such other time as we may indicated. Barring the foregoing, no cancellation may be made. For the avoidance of doubt, when the status of the withdrawal request has changed and is no longer “In Queue”, you can no longer cancel such withdrawal request and such withdrawal request shall be irrevocable.
5.5 Once we receive proceeds of the sale of your underlying Investments, the proceeds of such sale will be credited into your GrabPay Wallet. You agree and acknowledge that transfer to your GrabPay Wallet is the only means through which you can receive your proceeds from withdrawal of your investments in AutoInvest.
5.6 As GrabPay Wallet is a wallet holding electronic moneys that is subject to regulatory requirements, GrabPay Wallet has currently set a maximum spending limit of S$30,000 per calendar year and a maximum load limit of S$5,000. You agree and understand that because the withdrawal of proceeds of your AutoInvest will only be credited to your GrabPay Wallet, such withdrawal will be subject to the thresholds and limits of the GrabPay Wallet, including but not limited to withdrawals being subject to a limit of S$5,000 and not being able to spend or utilise the amounts in the GrabPay Wallet until the next calendar year where the maximum spending limit of S$30,000 per calendar year has been exceeded, and such other conditions as may be required under Applicable Laws or imposed by the issuer or GrabPay Wallet from time to time.

COVID-19 has dealt an unprecedented blow to the tourism industry, affecting the livelihoods of millions of workers. One of them was Komsan, an assistant chef in a luxury hotel based in the Srinakarin area.
As the number of tourists at the hotel plunged, he decided to sign up as a GrabFood delivery-partner to earn an alternative income. Soon after, the hotel ceased operations.
Komsan has viewed this change through an optimistic lens, calling it the perfect opportunity for him to embark on a fresh journey after his previous job. Aside from GrabFood deliveries, he now also picks up GrabExpress jobs. It can get tiring, having to shuttle between different locations, but Komsan finds it exciting. And mostly, he’s glad to get his income back on track.
