The Money Pouch Listed in Top 3 Roboadvisers in Asia

The Money Pouch's Free Wealth Management App recently ranked in the top 3 roboadvisers in Asia in the B2C section of the latest Kaplan Report.

Singapore, Singapore - July 10, 2018 /MarketersMedia/ —

The Money Pouch's Free Wealth Management App recently ranked in the top 3 roboadvisers in Asia in the Business to Consumer (B2C) section of Kaplan's Capital's latest research report about roboadvisers in Asia.

In the second report from Elena Okhonko, who is a financial adviser in Singapore and accredited CACS1&2 and CMFAS licence holder, the research paper looked into Business to Business (B2B), Business to Consumer (B2C) and Business to High Net Worth Individuals (B2HNWI) roboadviser models.

In the B2B category, the top three roboadvisers were Prive Technologies, Lumiq and Quantifeed.
In the B2C category, the top three roboadvisers were Stashaway, iAdvisor and The Money Pouch.

The report used an "inputs only" model to rank portfolio construction. The report recognises that this has its limitations as it doesn't require the historical return/risk data collection and analysis. Future reports in years to come will explore performance in more detail.

A spokesman for The Money Pouch commented, "We are excited to be included in the roboadviser report in our first year of managing client assets. The Money Pouch is about to reach 10,000 app downloads and since the report, we have improved the onboarding process for clients. Clients who already have an Interactive Brokers account can download the app, fill out the risk questionnaire and simply download a single page, scan and sign it to transfer management of their account over to The Money Pouch, managed by Hudson James Investment Management. Newer clients will need to answer more questions for regulatory, legal and tax purposes. They will also need to provide a passport copy and their latest utility bill. However, we now have an introductory video which explains how you can set up a new account in just 10 minutes. The account may then take a couple of days to pass all the compliance checks before trading can take place."

The key takeway of the report is that all roboadvisers will need to do more to educate investors as well as adding a human touch to improve customer service.

The Money Pouch is a free wealth management app you can download from the iTunes store or download The Money Pouch app via Google Play.

The Money Pouch uses low cost ETFs and a hedged momentum strategy to try to beat the market over the long run.

Japan briefs diplomats on Fukushima nuclear water concerns

Sep 15, 2019

TOKYO — Japan tried to reassure foreign diplomats Wednesday about safety at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant amid concerns about massive amounts of treated but radioactive water stored in tanks. Diplomats from 22 countries and regions attended a briefing at the Foreign Ministry, where Japanese officials stressed the importance of combating rumors about safety at the plant, which was decimated by a 2011 earthquake and tsunami, while pledging transparency. The plant's operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co., or TEPCO, said last month that it would run out of storage space for the water in 2022, prompting South Korea to raise safety...

Japan's move to lower South Korea trade status takes effect

Sep 15, 2019

TOKYO — Japan's downgrading of South Korea's trade status has taken effect, a decision that already set off reaction and hurt bilateral relations. As of 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, Japanese manufacturers must apply for approval for each technology-related contract for South Korean export, such as fluorinated polyimides used for displays. South Korea's previous status as a preferential trade partner meant simpler checks on exports. Since Japan announced the decision, South Korea decided to similarly downgrade Tokyo's trade status, which will take effect next month. Seoul has also canceled a deal to share military intelligence with Japan. South Korea has accused Japan...

China lets currency sink to 11-year low after Trump threats

Sep 15, 2019

BEIJING — China allowed its yuan to sink to an 11-year low Monday after President Donald Trump sent jittery financial markets tumbling by announcing new tariff hikes and threatening to block American companies from doing business with this country. The escalation in the fight over trade and technology prompted warnings that chances for a settlement were disappearing. The yuan declined to 7.1468 to the dollar, a relatively modest change from Friday's low point of 7.0927 but its weakest rate since January 2008. The yuan has lost 6.5% from this year's high on Feb. 28. Chinese leaders have promised to avoid...

China threatens retaliation if US tariff hikes go ahead

Sep 15, 2019

BEIJING — China on Thursday threatened retaliation if Washington steps up their war over trade and technology by going ahead with planned Sept. 1 tariff hikes on additional Chinese imports. Beijing will take unspecified "necessary countermeasures," the Cabinet said in a one-sentence statement. It gave no details or any indication plans for trade talks in Washington in September might be affected. The mounting tension has unnerved financial markets that worry the global economy will tip into recession. President Donald Trump says he plans to impose 10% duties on an additional $300 billion of Chinese imports, extending penalties to almost everything...

China's Xi gets tougher on Trump after new tariff threat

Sep 15, 2019

BEIJING — Facing another U.S. tariff hike, Chinese President Xi Jinping is getting tougher with Washington instead of backing down. Beijing fired what economists called a "warning shot" at Washington by letting its yuan currency weaken in response to President Donald Trump's latest threat of more punitive import duties on Sept. 1. Chinese buyers canceled multibillion-dollar purchases of U.S. soybeans. Regulators are threatening to place American companies on an "unreliable entities" list that might face curbs on their operations. Both sides have incentives to settle a trade war that is battering exporters on either side of the Pacific and threatening...
