Best Investment Sign-up Promotions In Singapore (2024)

Alevin Chan

Last updated 03 April, 2024

Here are the latest investment sign-up offers that can save you money and boost the growth of your portfolio.

Everybody loves a good deal, and when it comes to investing, the best deals are the ones that give you free money. 

If starting a profitable investment portfolio is one of your financial goals, you’ll want to take advantage of sign-up promos and deals that save you money when investing and help your fledging account grow that little bit faster.

 

Promos and offers aren’t the full story

While promos are good, you shouldn’t jump into opening an account just because you see a good one. 

You should always take the time to understand the investment platform and product fully and find out what fees you will need to pay after the promotion is over, and only proceed if there is a good fit with your goals, timeline and budget. 

Investments work best over time, and starting and stopping or switching between platforms and products will incur a chunk of fees – which means money wasted. 

With that in mind, here are some of the best investment sign-up promos for Singaporean investors.
