What is FAST?

Fast & Secure Transactions, generally known as FAST is a mode to instantly transfer funds between participating banks in Singapore securely. This electronic funds transfer service makes it easy and convenient for customers to manage their finances in one place.

Prior to FAST, the payment infrastructure in Singapore could take up to 2-3 working days for interbank funds transfer. Instant and seamless mobile transfers were only possible with a new payments infrastructure that connected interbank payment stacks across the country. Soon, a solution by the Monetary Authority of Singapore came up that could be accessed from laptops or mobiles 24X7 enabling 26 participating banks and 7 non-financial institutions to transfer up to $10,000 per transaction.

FAST can be used to transfer funds between customer savings accounts, current accounts, or e-wallet accounts, the status of which can be accessed by your bank account via internet banking or notification service.
