Tricor Group Recent Developments
In December 2020 Tricor launched Tricor IPO Smart Pay (“IPO Smart Pay”) as supported by HSBC’s real-time direct debit solution. IPO Smart Pay is a new feature added to the Tricor IPO APP, the market’s first white form e-IPO APP rolled out in October 2019. The launch of the new IPO Smart Pay on the APP further enhances its user-friendliness by offering a fast and secured payment method for IPO applications. In addition, unlike IPO applications through banks and brokerage houses where an investor’s funds are immediately frozen once the application is submitted, Tricor IPO Smart Pay will only debit monies automatically and securely from the investor’s designated account on the IPO closing date. The appeal of IPO Smart Pay is manifold, including investors’ ability to have greater flexibility with their funds and more time to determine the appropriateness of a particular IPO. Investors are allowed to cancel and resubmit their applications anytime before the closing date. The APP also charges no application and service fee.
