Frequently asked questions
Trust Bank (known as Trust) is a digitally-native bank, backed by a unique partnership between Standard Chartered Bank and FairPrice Group. This partnership brings together a leading international bank and a social enterprise with more than 200 years of combined experience in Singapore.
The decision to name our bank Trust was based on extensive user testing here in Singapore. Our users felt strongly that Trust reflects what they want from their bank. It also reflects the values with which we have built our bank and the standing of our shareholders in Singapore. The “us” in “Trust” also represents how we are a bank for all in Singapore – bringing all of us together!
Yes. Anyone who would like to learn more about Trust and our product offerings can visit the Trust Experience Centre located within FairPrice Xtra in VivoCity at #B2-23. Our digital ambassadors are on-site to perform these services as well as help customers navigate the Trust app and educate them on performing basic banking activities with it.
Please note that the Trust Experience Centre is not intended to function like a bank branch. We are unable to carry out any account-specific activities such as updating of customer personal information, addressing transactional disputes and providing updates on Union and voucher redemption status. If you need help with your account, please contact us via the in-app chat or call us at +65 313-TRUST (+65 3138 7878). The Trust Experience Centre is open daily from 11am to 7pm and from 11am to 3pm on Christmas Eve, New Year’s Eve, and Chinese New Year Eve. It is closed on Christmas Day, New Year’s Day and Chinese New Year public holidays.
At launch, Trust offers a credit card, savings account and family personal accident insurance. This is combined with a market-leading rewards and loyalty programme integrated with the FairPrice Group ecosystem. Alongside this, Trust also brings specially curated deals to deliver additional savings to our customers through partnerships with brands such as KFC, Starbucks, Viu and Caltex. This offering is the start of our journey and we are excited to be working with our customers to develop this further.
Trust is designed and built to operate entirely on your mobile phone, using the latest and best technology. We focus on digitising as many of the traditional processes as possible, we don’t have any branches and we operate 24/7. This allows us to deliver a banking service to you that we hope is easier and faster to use. Our sign-up process is a great example of this as it takes just a couple of minutes for Singapore residents using Singpass.
