What do I need to know about Versa?
Oftentimes, we found ourselves contemplating putting our savings in a fixed deposit account because the minimum placement is high. Plus, you will be missing out on life since you can withdraw your money along with the returns you earned only when the account matures. So in the end, we let our savings sleep in our savings account without earning much return.
With Versa, you can Duit Your Way™! Managed by Affin Hwang Asset Management, Versa is a digital cash management platform that works the same as a fixed deposit and you can deposit as low as RM1.
What's even more awesome is that your cash will be put into money market funds, thus providing you with the opportunity to broaden your regular income stream and give high returns to meet your cash flow requirements.
Once you’ve parked your money, you can start earning returns daily and watch your money grow as you go with Versa.
But what is a money market fund?
Put simply, a money market fund is a fixed-income investment that invests in safe assets such as deposits and lets you park your money in a short time.
It is not just safe and low-risk, but a money market fund is also highly liquid with the flexibility of no lock-in periods. This way, you have easy access to your money no matter when and where.
How high is the return rate?
Annually, you get to earn a return rate as high as 4% per annum (after fees) for the first RM30,000 funds in Versa. By after fees, we meant by the Management Fee of 0.30% and the Trustee Fee of 0.05% have already been deducted.
Additionally, that doesn't mean that you have to deposit RM30,000 to get the high return rate, so long as there's cash in your Versa account, then you will get to enjoy the 4% per annum rate.
Even so, please do note that your earnings may vary or change on the valuation of debentures or money market instruments/investments. In the event that the return rate increases, the investment prices generally decrease resulting in the low market value of the investment.
Can I withdraw my funds anytime I want?
Yes most definitely!
What’s cool about Versa is that you have easy access to your cash whenever you want it, as compared to other fixed deposits in the market. You won’t get charged any penalty fees for withdrawing before maturity.
No hidden fees and no extra charges are guaranteed.

Yes, your deposited money in Versa is safe as this platform is licensed by the Securities Commission Malaysia under the following guidelines - Recognized Markets SC-GL/6-2015 (R5-2020).
