Sean Koh

We are excited to announce that Wise Platform has partnered with a leading online brokerage firm Tiger Brokers, to give their customers faster and cheaper international money transfers, available directly in the Tiger Brokers app or website.

From today, retail investors in Singapore funding their investments in selected foreign currencies will be able to directly access Wise’s lightning fast and low cost international money transfers to deposit Singapore dollars into their Tiger Trade account!

This integration makes Tiger Brokers the first Singapore online brokerage to provide international money deposits with no exchange rate markups and full price transparency to their customers.

The Tiger Brokers and Wise partnership was a no brainer - with the importance of speed, cost and convenience - now Tiger Trade customers will be able to deposit foreign currency within the Tiger Trade platform by linking their existing Wise account or, if they don't have one, opening one with Wise. Customers will be able to take advantage of speed with 45% of all transfers globally sent on Wise are instant (less than 20 seconds). Additionally, users will be able to get the real exchange rate and see the fees upfront with no hidden costs. All this is possible thanks to the Wise Platform API.

Eng Thiam Choon, Chief Executive Officer, Tiger Brokers Singapore, shared, “We are excited to partner with Wise to be the first to offer investors a faster, cheaper and more convenient way to transfer directly to their trading account held with Tiger Brokers Singapore. As we grow, we want to find ways to make it easier and more efficient for investors to trade a wide range of securities across major global markets and currencies on our investment platform. Tiger Brokers has always been focused on creating a superior and seamless trading experience for investors on our online and mobile trading platforms, and our partnership with Wise, a global leader in money movement, is yet another step in this direction.”

Vinay Palathinkal, Regional Head, Wise Platform, shared: “At Wise, our mission is to make moving money faster, cheaper and more transparent for everyone, everywhere. As a customer-obsessed company, Wise shares Tiger Brokers’ vision for creating new, frictionless experiences for their customers and we’re thrilled to build this feature with them to enable quick and low-cost transfers with no exchange rate markups to their customers.”
