Mutual Fund: All you need to know about Piggyvest

Do you know saving is an investment? There are several savings and investment platforms in Nigeria, but we’ll only be looking at piggyvest, an investment platform that can help you save, achieve your goals and get rewarded at the same time in this article.

Savings is an important part of man’s life, though it is not that easy especially in a country like ours as most people spend more than they earn monthly because things are quite expensive. Piggyvest is an investment app that helps you save either daily, weekly or monthly depending on your choice of saving or your target. You will agree with me that if a person should save money in his or her bank account,it would be very easy to assess if some situations should arise, but with piggyvest,you can lock funds away to achieve specific goals.

With piggyvest, you get 10% annually and funds can be used for different purposes like paying for tuition, house rent and many more. When you lock funds away,you get to choose the withdrawal date i.e. the day you can assess the money for use. Once you withdraw the money before the due date, you will be charged a 5% penalty fee while you will be given 10%-15% interest if you wait till the due date before assessing the fund.

Piggyvest has a low-risk investment in the transportation, real estate and agricultural sector, you can invest in any of this with just #5000.
