FAQs

  • The bank conducts periodic reviews on our products and may revise the relevant terms and conditions  to create a better banking experience. With the revision of credit card interest calculation, the interest incurred by clients will be lower.

  • This revision will only impact you if you do not make full payment of the total outstanding balance by the payment due date as indicated on your statement.

    With effect from 31 July 2018, if you do not make full payment of the total outstanding balance by the payment due date as indicated on your monthly statement, interest will only be applied to your outstanding balance, fees and charges excluding previous interest.
