DDA Deposit Guideline

DDA (Direct Debit Authentication) fast deposit is a 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 complete 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 the official website page for details.)

Efficiency: Funds are expected to arrive in several minutes. There may be a delay if you deposit outside of the bank's working hours.

Convenience: Deposit instructions may be submitted via Tiger Trade APP/official website, there is no need to login to your bank account or submit a deposit notice.

DDA fast deposit can be completed in two steps:

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

2. Submit a DDA fast deposit at Tiger.
