Regular Shares Savings Plan

A regular shares savings plan (RSSP) is an investment plan that allows you to invest a small and fixed amount of money (as low as S$50) into a particular investment product, such as exchange-traded funds (ETFs), real estate investment trusts (REITs), and stocks, on a monthly basis.

FYI: RSSP is also known as a regular savings plan (RSP).

A major benefit of using the RSSP is that investors can take advantage of dollar-cost averaging, which avoids trying to time the market, especially during a bear market.

By investing at regular intervals, more units are bought when prices are low, and fewer units when prices are high.

But overall, the average cost for all the units is likely to be lower than using a lump sum and buying units at one go.
