For example, you can fund with $5,000 and be credited $5,000 or fund with $7,000 and be credited $6,000.


If you have fully repaid your Fundlater loan, you have the option to redraw an additional $6,000 given that you are still invested in a Fundlater approved portfolio.


You can request a top-up here and the loan will be added to your account with no additional upfront funding required from you. 

Terms apply.

When you make your final Fundlater repayment, your Fundlater loan is discharged.

Your InvestSMART PMA becomes a standard, regular investment account. This means you can change portfolios along with many other features. See Using my PMA in the Help Centre for assistance with these features.

You can continue to make regular payments to the same Bpay number, and we'll automatically add these to your portfolio. You also have the option to top-up your Fundlater loan, and request an additional $6,000 non-recourse loan.
