Upon satisfaction of all the requirements set out in clause 4 (a) to (d) subject to the terms and conditions set out herein, your Friend shall qualify as an “Active Referral”.

5. A ‘Qualifying Trade’ is a CFD with a minimum size of one mini contract or equivalent on which you have paid commission (subject to any applicable promotional offers). For the avoidance of doubt, trades subject to a commission free period will not be Qualifying Trades.

Rewards

6. Within 60 days of your Friend becoming an Active Referral both you and your Friend will receive a cash reward in line with the Tiers set out in clause 7 posted to your default IG trading account and your Friend’s Account respectively (each a “Refer a Friend Reward”).

7. The Refer a Friend Reward Tiers available to you and each of your Friends who qualify as Active Referrals are as follows:

Tier 1: If your Friend places 1, 2, 3 or 4 Qualifying Trades in the Qualifying Period, you and they will receive a cash reward in the amount of S$50;

Tier 2: If your Friend places 5 Qualifying Trades in the Qualifying Period, you and they will receive a cash reward in the amount of S$150;

You both may be eligible for an enhanced rewards instead of the Tier 1 or Tier 2 rewards if your Friend meets the additional criteria below:

Tier 3: If the Qualifying Trades placed by your Friend during the Qualifying Period have a notional value of S$1,000,000 or more but less than S$3,000,000, then you and they will receive a cash reward in the amount of S$188;

The maximum Refer a Friend Reward available to you under this Promotion is SGD4,440 (Four Thousand Four Hundred and Forty Singapore Dollars) where you have successfully referred a maximum of five Active Referrals under this Promotion and each of those Active Referrals meets the Tier 5 criteria.

9. The notional value for each Qualifying Trade will be calculated based on the notional value of the opening Transaction and not the notional value of the closing Transaction.

10. All accounts are subject to our standard account opening criteria and accounts are available subject to certain jurisdictional restrictions, and as such not all applicants will be successful in their application for an account.
