External Asset Management Account: Advantages and Peculiarities

An external asset management account is used as an efficient savings management instrument. It differs from a regular bank account in that all communication with the bank on behalf of the client is undertaken by an external asset manager. This includes absolutely all aspects of interacting with the bank, from opening an account to its closing. You will receive additional protection of your interests, and most importantly, fully independent investment and financial advice.

An external asset management account provides many benefits to the client, namely:

  • simplified account opening procedure thanks to the fact that the external asset manager assumes part of the responsibility for the due diligence check and the client’s compliance with legal requirements, including those in the field of anti-money laundering;
  • a much wider choice of products and services thanks to the external asset manager’s relations with other banks and other service providers which means an opportunity to choose the really best option;
  • the opportunity to get comprehensive solutions for all of your family needs;
  • full protection of interests when the external asset manager provides financial and legal protection when entering into transactions with banks, ensuring timely legal advice;
  • unbiased consulting, i.e. the external asset manager is an independent person and acts solely in the interests of the client without attempting to sell them any particular products or services;
  • the possibility to react as quickly as possible in the event of an adverse situation, for example, to close your account and/or transfer your funds to another bank/jurisdiction;
  • higher client status with the bank and the highest level of service, that is additional products and services, benefits, incentives, the opportunity to reduce commission fees.

The external asset management account owners are served by both a private banker and an external asset manager. Thanks to this situation, the client receives the following additional privileges:

  • services outside of bank business hours;
  • double control of each operation to avoid any errors;
  • an opportunity to compare the results of analytical studies prepared by different specialists, and make a more informed decision having compared those;

I would like to open an account with a bank in Singapore, but I have been waiting for the answer for a long time. What should I do?

The main thing is not to panic or start calling the employees of the financial institution in order to speed up the procedure. If the case is handled by our experts, every necessary action will be taken without your participation. If we talk about the reasons for the delay, they may be as follows: 1. You have a delay in providing the necessary information (remember, the bank may ask for any additional documents). 2. Delayed payment of the initial activation amount. 3. Internal or external inspection or audit. 4. Vacation season. 5. Public holidays. 6. Sudden and significant changes to the legislation. 7. Excessive workload of bank employees. These are the most common causes of delay, but there may be others. Anyway, it makes no sense to panic just because of 2 or 3 days or even a week of delay.

I have an account with a bank in Singapore. I did not receive a payment from my contractor. What could possibly go wrong?

The advice is the same as in the previous case, please be patient. The main reasons for delays are often related to failures in the bank’s operations and do not depend on you in any way, but there are certain opposite situations. The most common reasons for delays are as follows: 1. Wrongly specified payment purpose or even banal errors in data. 2) The recipient’s bank detail (i.e.  your bank details) were not specified in full or contained errors). 3) There was a clear mismatch between the contractor’s specified field of activity and their business profile (e.g., the contractor has “medicines” in his documents and you paid for office equipment). 4) The payment has been returned to the sender. There may be many possible reasons for this, including illegal transaction. 5) The sender himself withdrew the payment. 6) Your contractor is an offshore company.

I have an account with the bank in Singapore. The bank wrote off a commission that was too high

Your question is not quite clear. Let us assume that you are interested in the reasons for this. There can be several of them: 1. Bank’s rate have been changed but the bank has not informed the clients about it. 2. Non-standard payment. This category includes transactions to/from high-risk jurisdictions (e.g., offshore) or to/from those companies that operate in high-risk businesses. 3. Certain translation details (OUR, BEN or SHA). 4. The second party bank found the payment suspicious or non-standard, so the manager contacted the sender/recipient for clarification. This service has to be paid at many banks. If you encounter such a situation, please check the current rates and payment details, and if this will not be a clarification enough, please contact your bank manager.
