1. Where can I find the online yield/beta calculator?
The YieldMax Calculator can be located under the Trading Tools tab of UTRADE Web. Two sample portfolios and a user guide are included for reference. Login now to try it!
2. How are dividends and returns in the online yield/beta calculator derived?
Dividends are estimates derived from market consensus dividend yields, assuming a holding period of one year.

Returns are calculated based on the dividends expected from your selected portfolio of stocks, and are adjusted for funding costs (i.e. margin financing interest), thereby providing an indication of your expected net yields. Do note that returns are not adjusted for possible price fluctuations.
3. What is beta?
Beta is a measure of volatility in comparison to the market as a whole. The higher the beta, the higher the volatility.
4. What counters can I trade with a YieldMax account?
Please click here to see the full list of counters.

Non-qualifying counters, if traded in the YieldMax account, will not qualify for the special interest rate and will be transferred out of the YieldMax account into your other margin or cash account(s).
5. Do I need to open a separate YieldMax account to enjoy all the benefits of YieldMax?
To enjoy the special interest rate, you will need to open a separate YieldMax margin account. Speak with your Trading Representative or call our Client Services hotline at +65 6536 9338 to find out how.

Nonetheless, you can still use our online yield/beta calculator to design your own portfolio and trade via your existing cash and/or margin accounts.
6. What is the margin financing interest rate?
Enjoy a special interest rate of only 3.75% p.a., subject to change.
7. What is the margin ratio?
Funding is at 70% advance margin, with margin call at 75%. Hence your initial deposit should be at least 30% of your intended portfolio value.
8. How do I fund my YieldMax account, and is there a minimum amount?
SGD cash deposit and/or Category S1, S2 and/or S3 share collateral are accepted, subject to a minimum amount/value of S$15,000.

Transfer-in of share collateral from existing margin accounts are subject to 0.25% transfer fee.
9. Is there a facility limit?
The facility limit is S$350,000. Hence your maximum portfolio value is S$500,000.
10. Is there a lock-in period?
With the YieldMax account, you enjoy the flexibility to close your positions at anytime without any lock-in period.
