Additional Notes

There might be extraordinary circumstances involved if you are expecting incoming transfers. Generally, these additional notes have been included in the Payment Instructions of your SGD Account.
  • To receive money from a non-FAST or GIRO account in Singapore, such as USD from a Multi-Currency Account at DBS or SGD from a non-FAST enabled bank via Local Telegraphic Transfer/MEPS, the sender will need to send funds to the following account name: Aspire FT Pte. Ltd. on behalf of Your Account Name.
  • If the sending platform has a character limit, you can leave out the end characters of the name and the transfer will still work.
  • You can send any common currencies via local telegraphic transfer to the Local SGD Account, provided that it is sent by a local entity/bank. These currencies will be converted to SGD at the bank board rate. In addition, a fee of SGD 10 will be applied for every incoming local telegraphic transfer.
