Q: Are Custody Fees applicable for all Tiger Brokers users?

A: For customers who trade and hold positions in Singapore Exchange (“SGX”) counters, TBSG will hold these stocks in segregated custodian accounts.

Q: When will the Custody Fee be charged?

A: TBSG charges a quarterly nominal fee for custodian accounts. We call this a custody fee. Custody fees are charged on the 4th business day of the next quarter.

Q: How much is the Custody Fee, and how much will I be charged?

Note: SGX charges the following fees on the maintenance of securities accounts held through depository agents -

Sum of Securities value per sub-account:

  • First S$0 to S$20M : 0.25bps per annum

  • Next S$20M to S$1B: 0.15bps per annum

  • Any remaining AUM above S$1B: 0.10bps per annum

Subject to a minimum charge of S$2.16 and a maximum charge of $13,500.00 per sub account per quarter.

However, Tiger Brokers (Singapore) will only charge a quarterly nominal fee of 2 for accounts with no trading transactions in the quarter. The remaining amount will be fully absorbed by Tiger Brokers (Singapore).

Q: Can I waive my Custody Fee?

A: Custody fees will be waived for accounts with trading activities in the quarter. For accounts with no trading transactions in the quarter, a nominal fee of SGD 2 will be charged.

Example: Customers with no trading activities in Q2 2023 (1 April 2023 to 30 June 2023) will be charged custody fees of SGD 2 on 6 July 2023 (4th trading day of Q3 2023). Custody fees will be waived shall the customer have trading activities in Q2 2023.

All other cases to be taken on a case-by-case basis.
