[E-wallet] 13 Questions about GO+ under Touch'nGo e-wallet (with Answers)

Complaining that e-wallet operators are using our money to roll-over?
That's why it sounds stupid if we put in so much money inside our e-wallet account?

Okay lo...

TNG eWallet has just recently come out with this new feature called GO+ to meet your burning desire, hopefully...

GO+ is a new TNG eWallet feature launched by TNG Digital Sdn Bhd (“TNGD”) which allows the balance in your GO+ account to earn potential returns.

The underlying fund for GO+ is Principal e-Cash – a money market fund managed by Principal Asset Management Berhad (“Principal Malaysia”) that aims to provide investors with liquidity and income.

The balance in the GO+ account should not be treated as e-money, deposit; and is neither capital guaranteed nor capital protected by PIDM.

How do I upgrade to GO+?

The quota offered this time is the biggest under the LSS programme:
  1. LSS-1 370MW
  2. LSS-2 520MW
  3. LSS-3 500MW
  4. LSS@MenTARI is 1,000MW

However, the Ministry had set the maximum bidding capacity from each developer at 50MW compared with 100MW previously to give more opportunities for industry players to participate in the bidding process.
