  • *Proof of Residential Address (not older than 3 months) - utility bill, credit card/bank statement, letter from government bodies or landline telephone bill (do note that mobile bill is not accepted); for non-Singaporeans residing overseas holding an overseas bank account, upload your Bank Statement to serve as your Proof of Residential Address

Step 3: You will receive a verification email from us, click on the link in the email! After which, you can log back into your account and take a quick 2min Suitability Assessment and continue to tell us more about yourself.

Step 4: Once the due diligence process has been completed, make an initial deposit into the escrow account (account details will be provided on the Deposit page). Remember to upload the transaction receipt, which should show your account number, our escrow account number and the amount transferred.
Note: The requirement to transfer a fixed minimum amount only applies for the initial deposit. For subsequent transfers, there is no minimum amount required. 

Give us 1  business day to confirm the deposit and activate your account.
