MAS Intraday Liquidity Facility

The MAS Intraday Liquidity Facility allows eligible counterparties to obtain Singapore dollars ("SGD") on an intraday and collateralised basis, to cater to situations where there are unusually large payments or large receipts within the same day. It facilitates the settlement of payments and helps to prevent system gridlocks owing to timing mismatch.
