Frequently Asked Questions
What are short-dated US Treasuries?
Short-dated US Treasuries are also known as Treasury bills (T-bills). They're debt securities issued by the US government with a maturity of one year or less, making them highly liquid.
How risky are US Treasuries?
US Treasuries are backed by the US government, making them virtually one of the safest investments around. The US government has a long history of meeting its debt obligations since it can pay off its debts by raising taxes or printing more money. The only credit risk would come from the highly unlikely scenario that the US government would default.
Can I customise my USD Cash Plus portfolio?
We offer USD Cash Plus as part of our Flexible Portfolios offering, which allows you to build and customise your portfolio. You can adjust it any time and make the portfolio unique to your preferences by adding or removing asset classes. For example, you could add exposure to Emerging Markets or local government bonds. It’s free to make any changes, any time you want.
How is USD Cash Plus ultra-low risk?
USD Cash Plus invests 99% in short-term US Treasury Bills, which are ultra-low-risk investments. That’s because Treasury Bills are fully backed by the US government, which guarantees that your interest and principal payments will be paid on time. Their short maturities of 0-3 months make them less sensitive to interest rate movements and highly liquid, meaning that they can be easily converted to cash. The only credit risk would come from the highly unlikely scenario that the US government would default.
However, keep in mind that the USD Cash Plus is a USD-based portfolio, so your returns might be subject to currency fluctuations between USD and THB.
Who is the USD Cash Plus portfolio good for?
Everyone. Since US Treasuries are ultra-low risk and liquid, it’s a great way to grow your cash.
USD Cash Plus is perfect for those planning future expenses in USD, such as saving for children's tuition overseas, holding your cash in USD for your upcoming overseas investment, diversifying local currency exposure with the world’s safe haven currency, or taking advantage of the current decade-high yield of the ultra-low risk US treasuries.
How often will I get the dividends paid out of the USD Cash Plus portfolio?
