DDA Authentication Guideline

DDA (Direct Debit Authentication) fast deposit is a system service provided by DBS Bank. After connecting your Tiger account with your bank account, you can initiate a deposit instruction directly in Tiger, and the bank will execute the deposit for you. DDA Fast Deposit is more convenient than other SGD deposit methods. The main advantages are as follows:

Free: Both DDA authentication and deposit are free. (Tiger will bear relevant bank fees for you. Please refer to our official website page for details.)

Speed: Funds are expected to arrive in several minutes during business days. There may be a delay if you deposit outside of business days.

Convenience: Deposit instructions could be submitted via the Tiger Trade APP/official website. There is no need to login to your bank and no need to submit a deposit notice.

DDA Fast Deposit can be completed in two steps:

1. Setup the connection between your bank account and your Tiger account, and complete a DDA authentication. (Only required when you deposit through DDA for the first time)

2. Submit a DDA fast deposit instruction at Tiger.
