Terms and Conditions Governing OCBC Premier Banking Client Referral Programme (the “Programme”)
The Programme ("Programme") is open to existing OCBC Premier Banking Clients (individually "Eligible Client" and collectively "Eligible Clients"). The Programme will commence on 1 February 2023 and end on 30 June 2023, both dates inclusive ("Promotional Period").
Employees of OCBC Bank are not eligible to participate in this Programme.
To participate in this Programme, the Eligible Client will have to submit to OCBC Bank a signed copy of the “Terms & Conditions Governing OCBC Premier Banking Referral Programme” during the Programme Period.
By participating in this Programme:
the Eligible Client consents to having the referrals and his or her name disclosed to the person(s) referred by them to OCBC Bank; and
the Eligible Client confirms that he has obtained the Referred Client’s (as defined below) consent to having his or her name and status of successful signing up under the Programme disclosed to the Eligible Client.
Referrals are considered successful when the new OCBC Premier Private Client or OCBC Premier Banking client, OCBC Premier Banking Asia client (each a "Referred Client") referred by the Eligible Client fulfils all of the following criteria:
opens a new account as the primary account holder and signs up as an OCBC Premier Banking client, OCBC Premier Banking Asia client or as an accredited investor in the OCBC Premier Private Client segment, where the month in which the OCBC Premier Banking, OCBC Premier Banking Asia or OCBC Premier Private Client Relationship is successfully established is referred to as the “Onboarding Month”;
funds their new account with a minimum of S$350,000 (for the new OCBC Premier Banking client or new OCBC Premier Banking Asia client) or S$1,000,000 (for the new OCBC Premier Private Client) (or its equivalent) in Fresh Funds (as defined in Clause 6 below)(“Minimum Balance”) for any of the following products: Singapore Dollar Current and Savings account, Singapore Dollar time deposit, Foreign Currency time deposit, unit trust, structured deposits, regular premium insurance and single premium insurance offered by OCBC Bank (subject to OCBC Bank’s assessment of product suitability for the Referred Client) (“Eligible Products”);
the Fresh Funds must be placed no earlier than one month before the Onboarding Month and no later than one month after the Onboarding Month; and
maintains the Minimum Balance in the relevant account for at least 3 months after the month of most recent placement of Fresh Funds into the Eligible Product as the primary account holder (the "Minimum Maintenance Period").
"Fresh Funds" refers to funds (i) in the form of non-OCBC cheques/cashier’s orders/demand drafts or (ii) funds that are not withdrawn from any OCBC accounts and re-deposited in the last 30 days, and funds must be incremental to the Referred Client’s overall deposit balances 30 days prior to the date of deposit.
In the event that the Referred Client is unsuccessful in signing up as an accredited investor in the OCBC Premier Private Client segment, such Referred Client may still qualify as a successful referral under the Programme as an OCBC Premier Banking client or OCBC Premier Banking Asia client (subject to the terms and conditions under clause 5 above being met).
For the avoidance of doubt:
existing OCBC clients (who are not OCBC Premier Banking clients, OCBC Premier Banking Asia clients or OCBC Premier Private Clients) who (i) deposit a minimum of S$1,000,000 (or its equivalent in a foreign currency) in Fresh Funds, (ii) qualify as accredited investors and (iii) are upgraded to OCBC Premier Private Client, and existing OCBC clients (who are not OCBC Premier Banking clients , OCBC Premier Banking Asia clients or OCBC Premier Private Clients) who (i) deposit a minimum of S$350,000 (or its equivalent in a foreign currency) in Fresh Funds and (ii) are upgraded to the OCBC Premier Banking or OCBC Premier Banking Asia, will be considered Referred Clients under the Programme when the Minimum Maintenance Period is met.
existing OCBC Premier Banking clients, OCBC Premier Banking Asia clients or OCBC Premier Private Clients who open new accounts (be it in his or her sole name or jointly with another person) will not be considered Referred Clients under the Programme, even if they fund their new accounts with the Minimum Balance.
Referred Clients are eligible to participate in the Programme and make referrals only after their OCBC Premier Private Client, OCBC Premier Banking or OCBC Premier Banking Asia relationship (as the case may be) has been successfully established.
Existing/former OCBC Premier Banking clients, OCBC Premier Banking Asia clients or OCBC Premier Private Clients who have ended their OCBC Premier Banking, OCBC Premier Banking Asia or OCBC Premier Private Client relationship within the last 12 months of the start of the Promotional Period will not qualify as a Referred Client for the Programme.
Eligible Clients are not allowed to refer themselves for this Programme. To be eligible for the reward under the Programme, an Eligible Client must not be the joint account holder of the new account opened by the Referred Client.
If a Referred Client is referred by more than one Eligible Client, only the Eligible Client from whom OCBC Bank receives the Client Referral Form first will be entitled to the reward.
