Futu SG, company behind the popular moomoo trading account, is making things sweeter for new and existing customers alike.
For new users, get free Apple and NIO shares!
Update: this promo has been extended to 8PM 2nd August 2021; final extension 😢
Futu SG has been very aggressive in attracting new customers, and this is evident by looking at their generous sign-up promo.
If you haven’t already signed up for a Futu SG securities account, here is what you get what you sign up with this link and complete a few easy steps:
- Commission-free trading* in US, HK, and SG markets for 180 days
- Free level 2 market data for US market
- Free level 1 market data for SGX
- One free Apple Inc. (AAPL) share
All you need to do:
- Sign up with this link (less than 5 minutes with SingPass)
- Deposit S$2,700 (receive free Apple share worth approximately S$185)
- Complete 5 trades (receive free NIO share S$65 )
*Note that other fees apply
That’s approximately S$250 of free shares!
New and existing users: referral bonus
Once you have successfully signed up for your Futu SG securities account, you can refer your friends and family and receive a Twitter share (TWTR) once they have deposited S$2,700. It’s a win-win for getting your friend a free Apple share (AAPL)!
That’s one Apple share for your friend, and a Twitter share worth ~S$75 for yourself! You can do this up to 20 times, which means you can earn a total of 20 Twitter shares in all.
New and existing users: S$50 for share transfer-in
You might not want to deal with multiple trading apps, which is why this is such a nifty feature you can take advantage of: transfer your shares into your Futu SG securities account and make it your only trading app if you wish. You even get a one-time S$50 cash coupon for your first successful transfer!
Existing customers who have signed up for moomoo powered by Futu are also eligible for this promotion. Do note that you should check with your broker if they charge fees for transfer.
Summary of benefits
The sign-up benefits are excellent, and there’s something for new investors and seasoned ones alike.
New investors get to own their first Apple share for free (around S$170 at the time of writing), and get 180 days of commission-free trading. They can access free market data to get a hand at researching stock picks. Each referral also earns them more shares, and with such great sign-up gifts it’s pretty easy to invite friends and family.
More experienced investors would certainly appreciate the 180 days of commission-free trading, and the S$50 cash coupon reward for transferring shares from their other trading accounts sweetens the deal.
