Online Brokerage Tiger Brokers Announces Q2 2021 Results; Singapore’s Generation Z New Account Openings Up By +90% Y/Y

SINGAPORE, Sep 15, 2021 – (ACN Newswire via SEAPRWire.com) – Xiaomi-backed online brokerage Tiger Brokers (Singapore) Pte. Ltd. today announced that its quarterly business achieved a significant milestone as the number of account openings represented by Generation Z (18-24 yr) saw an increase of over 90 per cent compared to the same period last year.

For Singapore Generation Z investors, the purchase of stocks, futures and options have increased by at least 9-fold as compared to the same time last year, with a notable surge in the preference for stocks and options by around 14 times in terms of volume.

The Singapore business was one of the largest contributors to Group customer accounts in 2Q 2021, when over 60 per cent of all newly funded accounts were derived from international markets, and the Group added more funded accounts than in its entire cumulative operating history.

Eng Thiam Choon, Chief Executive Officer, Tiger Brokers (Singapore), said, “Generation Z, or the internet generation, can be regarded as one of the most disruptive generations ever. There is a distinct difference in how they invest and what they invest in compared to their millennial or baby boomers’ peers. With better access to data and information to supplement their financial knowledge, on top of increased awareness around world issues, it is clear that the narrative for investing will no longer be how it used to be.”

“At Tiger Brokers, we are constantly working to introduce relevant financial products, services and activities to keep the different types of investors engaged. Having more and more Gen Z investors on board meant that we need to provide more meaningful interactions, bite-sized content while maintaining impeccable user experience at the same time,” added Eng Thiam Choon.
