What’s the minimum amount of money you’ll need to make your offshore trading investment?
What’s the minimum amount you’ll need to top up your offshore trading account?

What is the minimum amount you can withdraw from your offshore trading account should you choose?

Knowing these three least amounts is central to your offshore trading investment activities: We will explain each factor and allow you to make informed decisions regarding how you handle your money.

The first thing you’ll need to know about offshore trading is the minimum sum needed to make the investment of your preference. There are two different types of minimum amounts.

One is a minimum allotment of shares, so you might expect to see something along the lines of a minimum investment amounting to 100 shares. The trouble with this technique is that the minimum opening price relevant to dollar value tends to fluctuate based on the value per share. This means that the current share price needs to be obtained to work out the dollar equivalent.

The other type of minimum investment is a dollar value: here you may expect to see something like: the minimum investment is $1,000. This method works on a dollar cost average system whereby you purchase as many shares as possible for the dollar amount. The benefit of this method is that when the shares in the mutual fund are at a lower price, more shares can be purchased for the same money.

In some cases, a minimum investment of $25,000 may be required. Upon further inspection of the prospectus however, the mutual fund might have five sub-funds, and that the $25,000 can be spread amongst them in $5,000 lots, adding another degree of diversity.

Some offshore trading investors, once they find a fund they like, rush in and put large amounts directly into the offshore trading fund. An approach favored by the more prudent investor, however, is to only invest the minimum amount into any given investment until they can be satisfied with the offshore trading fund and its management team.
