– Sees Singapore as a huge potential growth market for online trading especially among the younger Singaporeans who are getting more savvy with investing online.
SINGAPORE, Apr 6, 2021 – (ACN Newswire) – Tiger Brokers Singapore, the Xiaomi-backed online trading platform, today revealed continued exponential growth and momentum among its user base in Singapore. The online and mobile-focused brokerage saw 100% growth in customer accounts for three consecutive quarters in 2020.
Wu Tianhua, Chief Executive Officer of UP Fintech Holding Limited shared, “The total addressable market in Singapore is huge. The country has one of the highest rates of digitalisation in the world, and a nation-wide preference for digital banking which is supported by high tech infrastructure and key fintech initiatives led by the government, making it a very attractive and relevant market for Tiger Broker’s services. This is a market that has huge potential for us, and we are working hard for incremental market growth, especially focused on younger Singaporeans who are getting more savvy with their investment needs.”
Eng Thiam Choon, Chief Executive Officer of Tiger Brokers Singapore, also shared, “Compared to a decade ago, trading seems to be out of reach to many. However today, we are seeing an increasing number of individuals, as young as Generation Z, beginning to explore online investing as a viable financial lifestyle choice. People are more aware of the trends and developments in global economies and changes in business landscapes today.
“Tiger Brokers Singapore saw an overall shift in user digital experience driven by the pandemic and recognised the need to keep pace with its investors’ demands by differentiating and expanding its services. In 2020, the platform has onboarded two exchange platforms – Singapore Exchange and Australian Securities Exchange, bringing the total number of exchanges available to Singapore investors to six across five countries. This access, especially to US markets, has been a huge value-add to its investors.”
It has also focused on creating convenience for its users; working with bank partners to help create a seamless payment system; working with technology partners such as Iress, one of the largest and most active online trading communities; TradingView, strengthening Tiger Brokers’ community engagement; and lastly, the launch of Tiger Brokers latest Fund Mall product that allows everyday-investors access to popular public funds. Tiger Brokers recently partnered with OTC Markets Group Inc. (OTCQX: OTCM) to provide customers with detailed insights and make more informed trading decisions on the OTC markets.
“At Tiger Brokers, our objective is to provide an array of financial and educational tools to support the new generation of investors in their investment journey. Our fantastic Q4 result would not be made possible without the support and faith of our Singapore and regional investors. As we remind investors to diversify their investment, we hope to continue bringing value-added investment opportunities to our current investors, while attracting the new ones,” shared Thiam Choon.
