Mandatory Provident Fund - MPF (Available to HK Residents Only)
Choosing the right MPF provider is one of the most important retirement decisions you will ever make. Platinum Financial Services, registered with the Hong Kong Government as an independent MPF intermediary, provides unbiased comprehensive advice and information on Mandatory Provident Fund (MPF) schemes and their constituent funds. We offer MPF members a balanced perspective and help them make informed choices and decisions. Members can choose their own funds according to the MPF scheme selected by their employer and have the option to switch their portfolio in line with their investment preferences at any time. Alternatively Members can subscribe to our value added MPF DMS service and invest into a Balanced or Growth strategy.
Voluntary contributions. Since there is a 5% cap on your MPF contributions the base level is unlikely to support you fully in retirement. However there are a number of advantages of making Special Voluntary Contributions (SVCs) using an MPF platform. Contributions can be made monthly or as lump sums and no initial charges will be levied when you make them. In addition withdrawals are not subject to the same rules when you retire or change employers.
Employee Choice Arrangement (ECA). From 1 November 2012 the new ECA was launched allowing you greater flexibility to do the following:
Transfer your accrued benefits, (i.e. the accumulated contributions and investment returns) from the employee mandatory contributions made during your current and previous employment, to a Personal Account with an MPF Trustee of your own choice, rather than that of your employer. You are able to do this once every calendar year.
Transfer any accrued benefits from previous employment or self-employment that have been transferred to your current Contribution Account to either a Personal Account or another Contribution Account with an MPF Trustee of your own choice, at any time.
ECA Benefits. As an employee, you will have greater control over your own MPF investment, and will be able to select MPF Trustees and schemes based on your specific personal needs and circumstances.
Discretionary Management Service. PFS offers a Discretionary Management Service (DMS) for those clients who wish to have their MPF fund managed for them. DMS provides clients with access to portfolio management experts and actively managed model portfolios to meet client return expectations as well as complete portfolio management administration .
