by April 23, 2024

Maybank Malaysia has launched a new digital investment platform called Goal-Based Investment, designed to cater to beginners and first-time investors.

This offering, accessible via the MAE App and Maybank2u Web, allows users to start investing from RM200. New customers can register for a Maybank savings or current account entirely online in under 10 minutes, while customers with existing accounts can get started immediately.

The platform offers a selection of investment funds managed by professional fund managers, tailored to various financial goals such as retirement, education planning, or wealth accumulation.

It features a simple registration process and requires no branch visits, enabling customers to manage investments directly from their digital devices.

Maybank Goal-Based Investment offers low sales charges, with no lock-in periods, making it a more accessible option for the general public.

In addition to conventional investment options, the platform also includes Shariah-compliant funds, with promotional offers such as a 0% sales charge on initial investments available until 25 June 2024.

The service is also available to customers in Singapore through the Maybank2u SG (Lite) app.
