If you wish to opt in as an Accredited Investor, please indicate that you are an Accredited Investor when completing your member’s verification form upon sign up.
One of our team members will follow up with you to obtain documents to support that you meet either net asset or net income accreditation requirements. Once all is in order, we will provide confirmation that you are an Accredited Investor and will be shown the details of specific investments.
If you have already registered as a member with SDAX and would like to opt in as an Accredited Investor, simply contact your Relationship Manager or send an email to [email protected], indicating your interest and attaching the relevant documentation required within the email.
A Relationship Manager will be in touch to complete any other formalities that may be required once we have received your supporting documents within 3 business days.
Do note that the confirmation will also be subjected to the results of “know-your-customer” (KYC) checks.
If you are an Individual Investor, you have to submit supporting documentation to help our team to validate your status as an Accredited Investor.
We accept Supporting Documents which indicate:
(a) You have net personal assets exceeding S$2 million in value*, or its equivalent in a foreign currency (e.g. the value of the individual’s primary residence, net of any secured loan, can only contribute up to S$1 million of the S$2 million threshold);
(b) You have net financial assets of more than S$1 million in value^, or its equivalent in a foreign currency, of financial assets (such as fixed deposits or investment products) net of any related liabilities; or
(c) Your income in the preceding 12 months is no less than S$300,000, or its equivalent in a foreign currency.
* or its equivalent in a foreign currency (e.g. the value of the individual’s primary residence, net of any secured loan, can only contribute up to S$1 million of the S$2 million threshold)
^ or its equivalent in a foreign currency, of financial assets (such as fixed deposits or investment products) net of any related liabilities (e.g. your current investment account statement issued)
If you are a Corporation (e.g. family office), you must submit valid documentation which indicates that the corporation is currently holding net assets that are exceeding S$10 million in value (or its equivalent in a foreign currency) as determined by:
(a) The most recent audited balance sheet of the corporation; or, where the corporation is not required to prepare audited accounts regularly, a balance sheet of the corporation certified by the corporation as giving a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the corporation as of the date of the balance sheet, of which the date shall be within the preceding 12 months; or
(b) A corporation, the sole business of which is to hold investments and the entire share capital of which is owned by one or more persons, each of whom is an Accredited Investor.
Accredited Investors are assumed to be better informed, and better able to access resources to protect their own interests, and therefore require less regulatory protection. Investors who agree to be treated as Accredited Investors therefore, forgo the benefit of certain regulatory safeguards.
For example, issuers of securities are exempted from issuing a full prospectus registered with the Monetary Authority of Singapore in respect of offers that are made only to Accredited Investors, and intermediaries are exempted from a number of business conduct requirements when dealing with Accredited Investors.
Investors should consult a professional adviser if they do not understand the consequences of being treated as an Accredited Investor.
These investments would be more suitable and offered only to Accredited Investors, Expert, and Professional Investors. If you meet the accreditation requirements and are a confirmed Accredited Investor, you would be provided with the relevant information for such investment opportunities.
You can opt-out to be treated as an Accredited Investor.
However, once you have confirmed as “opt-out” (and even if you were a confirmed Accredited Investor), we will not be able to show you details of transactions that are exclusive for Accredited Investors and Institutional Investors. Furthermore, once you have reverted to a “Retail Investor” status, you will be required to complete a Customer Suitability Assessment before we can share investment offerings with you.
The qualifying criteria applies to everyone regardless of whether you are a resident of Singapore or of other countries.
You must be confirmed as an Accredited Investor in order to have access to details of certain investments which are open only to Accredited Investors.
Yes, you can.
However, we still have to receive the relevant supporting documents to establish and confirm that you have met the accreditation requirements.
For self-declared Accredited Investors
As directed by the MAS, SDAX has to assess if an investor meets the Accredited Investor criteria, as well as periodically assess whether the investor continues to meet the Accredited Investor criteria.
This means that for compliance reasons, we cannot provide you with the details of the investment offerings that are exclusively for Accredited Investors.
Confirmed Accredited Investors
You will become a Confirmed Accredited Investor after you have submitted the relevant documents to satisfy the accreditation requirements. Once all is in order, we will confirm to you that you are a Confirmed Accredited Investor. It also means that we can then show you the details of the investment offerings that are exclusive to Accredited Investors and Expert Investors only.
For Exchange users: trading fees and withdrawal fees are applicable. Please refer to the questions “What are the fees for withdrawals?” and “What are the fees for trading on SDAX platform?” for more information.
Other fees applicable to Exchange users are an error trade review fee of S$50 for every request of a review for an error trade, and a maintenance of suspended account fee of S$2 per month commencing on the date of account suspension, paid quarterly upfront.
For Capital Market users: Retail Investors do not pay any fees for participating in the Funding Requests or for using the platform.
However, a service fee of 15% will be levied on interest, factoring fees, and any other fees earned by investors.
All interest rates quoted on our platform are on a gross basis and payable to the investor after deducting the service fee. There may be a small transactional fee imposed by the bank when withdrawals are made.
The chargeable fees are specified in the relevant offering documents for each transaction.
Your details are kept private and not shared to businesses for marketing purposes.
However as part of compliance processes, certain details are shared with our compliance and operations partners as they will need to perform “Know Your Customer” (KYC) checks as well as manage the movements of your funds.
Risks for each investment will be disclosed in the offering documents and information memorandum for each transaction.
Please refer to the general risk disclosure on the SDAX platform regarding investing on the SDAX platform here
Investors’ risk in making investments through our platform generally falls into the following categories:
This covers the ability of businesses to repay their loans on a timely basis. While we do not provide a recommendation on the creditworthiness of businesses, we will undertake due diligence on all investments to determine their ability to repay promptly.
Your money is maintained in a bank account with UOB. Risks associated with transactions carried out through the platform are mitigated by using a developed and tested platform built by experienced developers who have delivered dozens of such platforms to operators around the world.
Our Platform Terms, which include the agreement between investors and businesses, are documented by reputable financial lawyers to ensure investors’ interests are adequately covered and clauses covering various situations are clear and unambiguous.
There is no physical signing of contracts.
By clicking and agreeing to our Platform Terms, you are bound by the terms governing businesses and lenders.
This has the same legal effect as signing a contract.
Subject to funds being available on your Platform Account, you can participate in any of the live deals by selecting them and completing a few simple steps.
Once an offer has been submitted, your funds in your Platform Account will be earmarked for that particular Funding Request and will no longer be available to be used to make another offer or be withdrawn from the Platform Account.
Yes, you can make an offer for multiple Funding Requests, as long as there is sufficient balance in your e-wallet.
The acceptance of your offers is subject to the availability of funds in your Platform Account and other conditions set out on the Platform Terms.
To ensure all parties are committed to the transaction, once an offer has been made for a Funding Request, it cannot be cancelled.
The amount that you have earmarked for the particular Funding Request will be returned to your Platform Account.
You can then use the money to participate in other Funding Requests.
We have been advised that investing in Loan Requests via our platform will not contravene the Moneylenders Act.
Participating in invoice financing is essentially the purchase of invoices and as such, the considerations of moneylending are not relevant.
You can contact us with any questions that you may have in respect of a particular Funding Request.
We will answer your questions and, where required, seek the business’ input.
The main currency for investments on the SDAX platform is Singapore Dollars. For these SGD-denominated investments, currency risks (if applicable) are hedged to ensure investment returns are not affected by fluctuations in the currency markets.
Some investments may be offered in foreign currencies. Please be aware that your returns may be affected by fluctuations in currency markets if you elect to invest in investments denominated in foreign currencies.
You will earn interest and fee income from the investments that you make on our platform.
While S13(1)(ze)(i) of the Income Tax Act would generally apply to interest payments on debt securities arranged through the platform, where such debt securities are loans/debentures/bonds, however that responsibility eventually still lies with each investor to make their own tax assessments and take their own independent tax advice as SDAX is not able to give tax advice.
You should consult your tax adviser if you are unclear about your tax obligations. If you are a non-resident in Singapore, you may also be subject to withholding tax on the interest or fee.
No investments are free from risks.
Loans are generally safer investments than equities. However, there will be situations where the businesses are unable to pay on time or may become insolvent, resulting in their inability to repay the loan. In such situations, steps will be taken to recover the amount outstanding. These debt recovery provisions are set out in our Platform Terms.
It is important that Investors exercise caution and diversify their investments widely so that any defaults by businesses would account for only an acceptable percentage of their total investment portfolio.
This allows the client to access funds at a lower rate than if they were to take a working capital loan using their own credit standing. While the third-party buyer’s credit quality may be better, there could be situations where the third-party buyer may not pay the invoice (e.g. insolvency of the third-party buyer).
Yes. The minimum investment amount varies from transaction to transaction and depends on the asset class type.
The rate of return of a particular investment very much depends on the asset class, the tenor, and the risk profile.
At SDAX, we look for better quality investments as we aim to be a true alternative to conventional financial institutions.
We also aim to bring as many options for our investors on the SDAX platform.
Businesses typically make their loan repayments on the due date and at times, the next day.
There are a number of reasons why a loan repayment may not be made on the due date. When a loan repayment is not made on the due date, SDAX will actively engage the business to encourage them to make the payment as soon as possible.
In the event of a late payment, an investor’s update will be uploaded in the next business day to update the investor of any situation and steps taken.
We will work with the business to find a satisfactory solution to repay the amount outstanding, if this fails a debt collection agency may be appointed to recover the outstanding amount.
Notwithstanding the above, you will have direct recourse to the business and the personal guarantee(s) that was(were) provided as part of the loan.
A secured deal means that the repayment risks are in part mitigated by the creation of security interests over certain assets.
In real estate financing, the common types of securities include mortgage over the property, assignment of current and future income, and charge over a bank account.
Where the deal is a mezzanine debt, security may rank second to senior lenders which are typically financial institutions.
In case of a default in repayment by the ultimate Borrower, these securities can be enforced so that the asset value can be materialised into cash and redistributed back to the Investors.

Blockchain is a form of electronic ledger that records information and transactions of digital assets in blocks of data that are attached together in an order. These blocks of data are secured using complex cryptographic hashing.
Before being added to the electronic ledger, each new asset transaction is verified by a network of computers, or nodes. A consensus decision must be made by the network to validate the transaction. Once a transaction is consensus-verified, it is added to a block of data, and the blocks are attached to each other in a chain.
With every new block appended, the blockchain becomes a growing database of time-stamped digital asset transactions.
Digital security tokens can be stocks, bonds, funds, and other financial securities that are digitised and recorded on blockchain. The creation of digital security tokens is through a process called “tokenisation” which is the representation of the ownership and related rights of stocks, bonds or financial securities on blockchain. The process of tokenisation does not create any new rights, but simply represents digitally, in an immutable and secure format, the ownership and related rights of the issued stock, bond, fund or financial securities instrument.
Asset-backed tokens are tokens whose value is backed by a real-world, tangible asset which may include property, bonds, equity, art and more.
No. SDAX does not deal in cryptocurrencies.
