How can I save my money with B-Secure?

  1. Download the Thndr App and activate your account online.
  2. Make sure that your wallet is funded.
  3. Either search for “B Secure”, “BSC”, or look for the mutual funds theme.
  4. Tap on “Buy” and then select either “Set cash amount” or “Set number of certificates” 
  5. Fill in the quantity that you want and submit the order.

Can I add and redeem money whenever I’d like?

B-Secure offers daily redemption (selling certificates) and subscription (buying certificates), so your money is yours whenever you need it and you can save at your own pace.

Please note that any buy/sell orders need to be placed before 11:00 AM to be executed on the same day. Orders placed after 11:00 AM will be executed on the next business day at the next day’s price. 

How do I collect my profits? 

Your certificates will appreciate in value over time as the fund invests your money. 

So let’s say you bought certificates worth EGP 100,000 last year and the fund went up by 19% since. Your certificates would now be worth EGP 119,000. You can sell those certificates and collect your profit.  

You can keep track of your savings by visiting B-Secure’s page on Thndr and tapping “my position”.

Putting the power of investing in your hands means giving you the ability to choose between the savings products that best suit your needs.
