How do I make a withdrawal from my Syfe portfolio?

  • When you submit a ‘full withdrawal’ request there are several factors which might change the final amount of your portfolio:

    Daily Market Fluctuations: Under ordinary circumstances, we expect to sell your investments within 1 - 2 business days to fulfil your withdrawal request. During this period, the price of your assets may go up or down and change your portfolio value. Therefore, the final amount of your portfolio may be different than what you saw in the dashboard at the time of placing the withdrawal request.

    Dividends: Some companies give out dividends to their shareholders from time to time. If dividends are disbursed but we haven’t received them from our broker yet, we still add these to your portfolio value and payout at the time of withdrawal.

    Portfolio Management Fees: For managing your portfolio, Syfe charges a flat fee ranging between 0.35% to 0.65% per year based on the total amount you invest. The fee is calculated on a per-day basis and deducted at the end of every month. At the time of withdrawal, we calculate and deduct the remaining fees.

    Bank charges: For withdrawals above HKD 1 million to a local bank account, it will be done via RTGS at HKD 55. USD withdrawals cleared via HK local clearing platform (CHATS) will also be sent via RTGS at HKD 55, imposed by our banking partner.
    Other bank charges imposed by the beneficiary banks are at the full discretion of the banks and will also be borne by the customer.

  • For our USD denominated portfolios i.e. Syfe Core, you can withdraw your funds in either Hong Kong dollars (HKD) or United States dollars (USD).

    If you are withdrawing to a Hong Kong bank account, then we recommend choosing HKD.

    For USD withdrawals, a transaction from our bank, HSBC, to another HSBC bank account in Hong Kong is currently free. For foreign currencies (USD) that can be cleared via HK local clearing platform (CHATS), payments can be sent via RTGS out at HKD 55. This bank charge is imposed by HSBC, and this charge is at the full discretion of HSBC which will be borne by the customer. To avoid additional bank charges, customers may decide to submit a withdrawal request in HKD instead.

  • Syfe does not charge any withdrawal or exit fees. You can place a withdrawal request from any of your portfolios whenever you want.

    Syfe only charges a single flat fee based on the total amount you invested, which is calculated on a per-day basis and deducted at the end of every calendar month. So, you only pay for the days Syfe manages your funds.

    There are no fees for withdrawing, adding, or moving funds between your portfolios. You can visit the following link to learn more about our pricing tiers: How does Syfe pricing tiers work?
