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 paid daily. The annual interest is fixed at up to 15% which is attractive compared to the 5% 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 and 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).

OWealth currently offers 15% per annum for the first ₦100,000 and 5% per annum for the remainder of your balance.

Let’s use numbers and figures to analyze the profitability and the advantage of OWealth investment over banks.

To use OWealth, you must first get the OPay app, use my link and get up to ₦1,200 in reward as welcome bonus.

How OWealth Works

If Chike makes a total investment of ₦1,000,000 in OWealth while Funke makes a total investment of ₦1,000,000 in a bank (A bank that offers a high investment returns of 5%) Both for the period of one year.

The returns on investment (Interest) for both will be as follows:
Chike’s returns on investment (Interest) with OWealth after one year will be 15% on the first ₦100,000 and 5% on the remaining ₦900,000:
₦100,000 × 0.15 + ₦900,000 × 0.05 = ₦15,000 + ₦45,000 = ₦60,000

However, there is a 10% withholding tax that applies on interest earned on all savings in Nigeria. This amounts to a 6000 Naira withholding tax.

i.e. at the end of the one-year period Chike can withdraw a total of ₦1,054,000 having made a profit of ₦54,000.

Now let us look at Funke’s return.

Funke’s returns on investment (interest) is as follows:
₦1,000,000 × 0.05 = ₦50,000

Deducting 10% withholding tax, the earning on savings becomes ₦45,000.

i.e at the end of the one-year period Funke can withdraw a total of ₦1,045,000 having made a profit of ₦45,000

The decision to invest again lies in the hands of the investors. But one thing is clear the OWealth investor made a bit more compared to the Bank investor. A whole difference of ₦11,000.

Another advantage of OWealth interest on your account 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).

So, in example case above, the 54,000 Naira will be divided by 365 and you would be paid 147.94 NGN every day.

Another advantage of OWealth is that you can withdraw your funds without losing the interest you have earned at anytime. This is almost impossible with conventional banks fixed deposit savings and investment deals.

You can also use your OWealth balance for payment of bills (electricity, data, airtime, cable, etc), transfer funds, or POS and ATM transactions (with your OPay ATM card) without any hassle.

You earn high interest, yet you can use your fund anytime without any hassle. I usually leave my balance at around ₦100,000. This way I get the best bang for my buck.

Get more Savings with the Fixed Plan

If I want to save more than ₦100,000, I will deposit ₦100,000 in OWealth and the balance in the fixed plan. The Fixed plan offers interest of between 15% and 18% per annum depending on the duration you want to fix the deposit, ranging from 7 to 1000 days.

It also allows you get the high interest for a bigger sum of ₦300,000. You also get a higher interest rate for the balance, ranging between 6% and 9% per annum.

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.
