SINGAPORE, March 5, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Leading online brokerage firm Tiger Brokers (Singapore) has partnered with Wise Platform to unveil its Tiger BOSS debit card, designed with the needs of today’s investors in mind. This is the first debit card in Singapore that enables users to earn fractional shares for every dollar spent.

Mr Ian Leong, CEO of Tiger Brokers (Singapore), said: “We are delighted to be the first company to release such an innovative debit card solution in Singapore. With our deep understanding of the local market, we’ve developed the Tiger BOSS debit card to address the challenges faced by new investors, particularly limited capital. By linking everyday spending with the card, individuals can access pricier stocks without a large initial investment.”

“Furthermore, by offering fractional shares as rewards for everyday spending, we aim to introduce newcomers to investment, and foster awareness and confidence in financial markets. By providing the tools and resources necessary for financial growth, we are committed to democratizing investing and nurturing a generation of informed investors who can navigate the complexities of the market with ease and confidence #LikeABoss.”

Introducing fractional shares as a new mode of rewards

Compared to other reward types like cashback, loyalty points and miles, benefits earned in the form of fractional shares do not have a finite lifespan, with no expiry date or lock-up period, giving investors greater flexibility. Additionally, fractional rewards can inspire the joy of investing, allowing new investors to experience the financial world and its potential rewards through the power of compounding and the accumulation of wealth over time.

With the Tiger BOSS debit card, users can start deploying rewards earned into their investments of choice from the time when a transaction is approved. The shorter duration required to accrue or hold rewards means that investors can free up more capital and make regular investment contributions. This feature is especially useful for consumers who may not want to spend a minimum amount every month to accumulate rewards and reap the benefits only at a later point, as is commonly required for credit cards. 

Invest with convenience

Beyond financial gains, users can enjoy convenience, security and access to a wide range of investment opportunities. Alongside evolving digital lifestyles, more consumers now choose to use digital payments such as contactless cards and online payments to make everyday purchases.

Once activated, the Tiger BOSS debit card can be added to Apple Pay or Google Pay wallets for contactless payments. Fractional shares will also be instantly accrued once users begin to make eligible purchases on-the-go, without having to wait for a physical card to arrive before users start spending. By removing the hassle of making multiple transfers from their savings accounts into their Tiger Trade accounts, users stand to save time and reap the benefits of a seamless digital experience.

Details of approved transactions will be reflected online almost instantly. Meanwhile, rewards scored will be credited to users’ debit card account one working day after the spend has been made.

Invest with Tiger, grow with Tiger

Paired with the rich range of investment offerings and securities on the Tiger Trade platform, such as stocks, options, futures, ETFs, REITs, unit trusts and funds from various global markets, the launch of the debit card bolsters the group’s capabilities to offer an integrated, one-stop platform for users’ investment and lifestyle needs, available at the touch of one’s fingertips.

In addition, users of the Tiger BOSS debit card can take advantage of competitive foreign exchange rates when they spend overseas.

Mr Leong said: “The Tiger BOSS debit card stands as the latest testament to Tiger Brokers Singapore’s dedication to enhancing the local trading experience. As part of the broader Tiger Group, we have been working hard in democratising investing, particularly here in Singapore amongst novice investors for example. Our commitment is unwavering, focusing on the evolving needs of our local retail investors, positioning us as the trusted partner for Singaporeans in managing their wealth. Anticipate more exciting developments tailored for the investing community in Singapore, as we launch additional locally-focused products in the coming months.”

As part of a launch promotion, users who make an eligible transaction using their Tiger BOSS debit card by 30 April 2024 will receive 1% cashback in Tesla fractional shares and receive SGD 5 for every successful referral made. On top of that, users stand a chance to win SGD 888 for every three successful referrals. Terms and conditions apply.

Application for the card is free and instant, and there are no annual subscription fees. The Tiger BOSS Visa debit card is issued by Wise.
