Account Opening Documents

In general, to open a Tiger account, you will need to provide the following:

  • Identity document1
  • Proof of residential address1
  • Tax residency and tax identification number (if any)
  • The name and address of your employer
  • Investment objectives and experience, etc.

For the above identity document and proof of residential address, you may refer to the following tables and document samples.

Notes:

1. For clients with the SingPass account, we recommend choosing "Open an account with MyInfo" for fast account opening during the account opening process. (For clients who choose to open an account with MyInfo: if one is an NRIC holder, he/she does not need to upload an ID or a proof of residential address; if one is a work pass holder, he/she does not need to upload an ID but needs to upload a proof of residential address.)

2. If one does not open an account with MyInfo, but rather fill in the information manually, he/she needs to upload his/her ID and proof of current residential address during the account opening process.

3. The pictures of the identity document and the proof of residential address must be clear and readable, free of watermarks and reflections; the edges of the identity document must be clearly visible in the picture. It is recommended to take photos instead of scanning to get the pictures approved easily.
