SINGAPORE, 9 November 2020 – Saxo Markets, the online trading and investment specialist that connects people to investment opportunities in global capital markets, has today announced a suite of price reductions that are designed to enable more investors in Singapore to access SGX equities as well as global financial exchanges.
SGX equities: Attractive pricing for new and existing clients
Starting from today, Saxo will charge no minimum commission on Singapore Exchange (SGX) equities. This is available to all new clients (private individuals and joint accounts) who sign up for a Saxo account until 30 April 2021.
Saxo’s commission rate remains at 0.08%, the lowest rate in the market. In addition, existing clients’ minimum commission on SGX equities is also halved from SGD10 to SGD5, making it more attractive for them when trading SGX equities.
“As we serve more clients than ever before, Saxo is committed to being the best choice for our clients. Pricing structures and complexities are often cited as challenges for investors looking to navigate the markets and place trades. We are dedicated to removing these barriers for our clients, as more investors now turn to us to fulfill their financial aspirations and to make an impact, whether it’s through their investments or the outcome of their investments. The pricing adjustments and commitment to transparency reflect our commitment to always support our clients to make more informed and optimal investment decisions,” Adam Reynolds, Asia Pacific CEO, Saxo Markets, said.
For Saxo clients who want to access global markets, they can enjoy free live prices on dozens of stock exchanges – including those in Singapore, the US and Hong Kong - available by way of quarterly rebate, with a minimum of four trades placed each month on each respective stock exchange (note: six trades on ASX).
“The free live prices feature has always been available, but we are making it even more visible for clients so that they can tap into it to make more timely and relevant decisions in the markets, at no cost provided they’re active in trading the markets,” Reynolds added.
Commitment to transparency: No hidden fees, no new fees
No new fees are being introduced or other fees increased as part of this suite of price reductions. Saxo remains committed to full transparency on pricing, with costs outlined up front and no hidden fees. Saxo clients can also be assured that they will not be charged Inactivity Fees, Platform Fees or Maintenance Fees, for example.
