Experience sharing

Ease of Account Creation

First of all, registering a login account and opening a trading account are two separate matters.

Step 1: Registering a login account:

  • use a mobile number to sign up with uSMART

Step 2: Opening a trading account:

  • after registering an account, download the uSMART app and login.
  • select the option to “Open Account”
  • opening an account requires entering personal particulars and trading experience manually, or via Singpass MyInfo.
  • take extra caution when selecting the account type to create to avoid missing out on the welcome gifts.

I created my account in April 2022 and was impressed by the ease of opening an account. I skipped filling up personal particulars via SingPass MyInfo.

uSMART SingPass MyInfo support

The whole process took probably 7-8 minutes. I submitted my application to open an account in the evening and it was approved within the hour.

Funding

The easiest way is to link your bank account through the eGIRO feature.

If you use the PayNow or FAST option, remember to tap on the “Transferred. Notify uSMART” button at the bottom of the app to provide additional information like the account number, deposit amount and a transaction screenshot. I did not do this and the funds did not get deposited.

It was only a couple of days later that a customer service officer called me up and informed me that I needed to submit these information for the deposit to go through.

Best FX rates from SGD to USD

I observed that uSMART Securities edges the competition slightly in terms of the FX rates from SGD to USD. [May 2022]

Educate yourself on investing

I would strongly recommend you register a FREE account with SGX’s Online Education Programme and complete the basic courses first if you are new to investing.
