There is no limit to the number of fund switches that can be carried out per year, and there are no handling charges. However, we would remind you that the objective of MPF is to save for retirement and so your investment objectives should be longer term, dependent upon your personal circumstances.

The Fund Information provides you with the unit prices
Current unit prices are also available through these channels:
The cumulative performance of the Fund Information provides you with the past performance histories of the funds.
The unit prices are calculated based on the net asset value of each fund, ie the value of investments less fees and charges, divided by the number of units issued. (With the exception of the MPF Conservative Fund, where fees and charges are deducted directly from a member's account.)
The MPF legislation requires each MPF scheme to offer a CPF. Our CPF is a low risk fund, investing in high grade Hong Kong dollars denominated monetary instruments such as treasury bills, bills of exchange, commercial paper and certificates of deposits. The investment objective is to achieve a return higher than the average bank savings rate, however returns are not guaranteed.
According to the MPF legislation, fees can be deducted from the CPF only when the investment return is higher than the prescribed savings rate which is regularly published by the MPFA. The unit prices of the CPF have, therefore, not taken into account the deduction of fees. The fees for CPF are deducted in the form of units from a member's account only after the investment return and prescribed savings rate for each month are ascertained.
Our Guaranteed Fund is a low risk fund providing you with a guaranteed interest rate, provided certain conditions are met. If any of the Guarantee Conditions are met on withdrawal or transfer of benefits, members will be entitled to the guaranteed interest rate or actual investment returns, whichever is higher.
Please refer to the 'Guarantee Feature' section under 'Guaranteed Fund' in Part II - Fund Structure of the relevant 'Principal Brochure' and any supplement to the Principal Brochure for details of the Guarantee Conditions.
The rate for the scheme financial year from 1 July 2012 to 30 June 2013 is 0.125% per annum.
The rate for the scheme financial year from 1 July 2013 to 30 June 2014 is 0.125% per annum.
The rate will be reviewed annually and determined at the beginning of each scheme financial year, ie 1 July each year.

According to sections 31IA and 31YAA of the Employment Ordinance, section 12A of the Mandatory Provident Fund Schemes Ordinance and the governing rules of the Scheme, your employer has the right to offset Severance or Long Service Payment from accrued benefits derived from both the employer's mandatory contributions and vested voluntary contributions made to the Scheme.
