Fidelity Launches MPF Asset Consolidation Reward

Encouraging MPF members to increase their engagement level

 

HONG KONG, 4 May 2015– Fidelity Worldwide Investment today announces it has launched an MPF Asset Consolidation Reward programme. From now until 31 December 2015, MPF members can receive a bonus units rebate of up to HK$1,500 by transferring their accrued MPF benefits to Fidelity Worldwide Investment.

 

KP Luk, Head of Institutional Business, Hong Kong, Fidelity Worldwide Investmentsaid, “According to the Fidelity MPF Readiness Index survey1, half of all MPF members who own more than one account have never consolidated their MPF accounts. ‘No need to consolidate’ tops the list of reasons for not consolidating, while others said the biggest hurdles are ‘complexity of the process’ and ‘lack of related knowledge and time’.

 

“By launching the MPF Asset Consolidation Reward, Fidelity Worldwide Investment aims to encourage MPF members to manage their portfolio more proactively. After consolidating their accrued benefits, members can access their information, check their MPF total balance and performance, as well as apply their investment strategy to all their MPF assets in an efficient manner. We believe the enhancement of administrative efficiency will increase the engagement level of MPF members.”

 

The MPF Asset Consolidation Reward is applicable to a minimum total transfer-in amount of HK$50,000. The bonus unit rebates are as follows:

 

Total transfer-in amount (HKD)     Bonus units rebate (HKD)

$50,000 - below $100,000                  $300

$100,000 - below $200,000                $600
