Finance Companies

Finance companies are licensed under and governed by the Finance Companies Act.

They focus on providing fixed and saving deposits as well as credit facilities to individuals and corporations. They may not offer deposit accounts which are repayable on demand by cheque, draft or order. Generally, finance companies shall not grant unsecured credit facilities to any person or body of persons, which in the aggregate and outstanding at any one time exceeds S$5,000. Finance companies are not allowed to deal in any foreign currency, gold or other precious metals or acquire foreign currency denominated stocks, shares or debt securities. They may expand their scope of activities subject to MAS’ approval.
