OWealth is a Savings and investment platform built into the OPay App that enable you save part or all of your OPay fund to get an annual interest. The annual interest is fixed at 10% which is attractive compared to the 6% which is the highest any Nigerian bank can offer.
OWealth investment avenue allows investors to save any amount of money. You can go the full year or more or you can withdraw your money at any time. Investors will find this article very useful as we break down into details all you need to know about OWealth (An investment scheme by OPay).
Let’s use numbers and figures to analyze the profitability and the advantage of OWealth investment over banks.
If Man A makes a total investment of N2,000,000 in OWealth while Man B makes a total investment of N2,000,000 in a bank (A bank that offers a high investment returns of 6%) Both for the period of one year.
The returns on investment (Interest) for both will be:
Man A’s returns on investment (Interest) with OWealth :
N2,000,000 × 0.10 = N200,000
i.e. at the end of the one-year period Man A can withdraw a total of N2,200,000 having made his 10% profit of N200,000.
Man B’s returns on investment (interest) with his Bank:
N2,000,000 × 0.06 = N120,000
i.e at the end of the one-year period Man B can withdraw a total of N2,120,000 having made a profit of N120,000
The decision to invest again lies in the hands of the investors. But one thing is clear the OWealth investor made a profit almost twice as the Bank investor. A whole difference of N80,000.
Another advantage is that all interest on your OWealth though calculated annually will be credited daily. Any interest on your investment is payable on the capital you invested once it has completed a period of one day (24 hours).
You can withdraw your funds without losing the interest you have earned at anytime. This is almost impossible with conventional banks savings and investment deals.
Having considered the profitability and advantages OWealth has over bank investment we should also note that OPay is offering the OWealth investment scheme under the license of Blue Ridge Micro Finance Bank Limited. It is a licensed investment scheme and not a ponzi scheme.
