How to Invest from your Mobile (i-Invest)
Unit trusts provide you, the investor, with an opportunity to invest in a portfolio of stocks or fixed-income securities or both, without directly going to the market themselves. Unit trusts generally provide higher returns on savings than bank deposits.
The first time, you dial *480#, you will be prompted to register as follows:
Enter your ID/Passport number, postal address & code, email address (if any), occupation and accept i-INVEST terms and conditions. You will then receive an SMS with your one-time PIN within seconds of accepting the Terms & Conditions.
Once you get an SMS with your PIN, you will need to dial *480# again.
After you enter the PIN sent via SMS, you will be prompted to change your PIN.
Once the One Time PIN has been successfully changed you will receive an SMS informing you that you that an account activation SMS will be sent within 24 hours unless the system is experiencing delays.
Once your account is activated, you will be able to either change the ID information you provided in (1) above or access the full OLD MUTUAL MOBILE menu.
If registered with a National Identification Document and the account activation fails, you will be required to submit a copy of your National Identification Document to Old Mutual.
If registered with a Passport, you will be required to submit a copy of your Passport to Old Mutual.
The mobile unit trust account works very much like the conventional unit trust account except that all instructions can be submitted and processed over the registered mobile phone. You can register, invest, withdraw, and switch between selected funds and change static information - all via your registered mobile phone.
