Sending money with UOB: What to know

What we like

  • Coverage. UOB offers you a convenient way to access and transfer your funds worldwide in over 100 currencies.
  • High security. Once you register for a personal Internet banking account, you’ll be provided with a SecurePlus token which adds an extra layer of security for all your transactions. UOB also has up-to-date encryption in place to ensure that your personal details are safe.

What to watch out for

  • Not the best rates. Other money transfer services can beat UOB’s exchange rates.
  • Fees apply. Different fees can apply in different circumstances, such as agent charges. Compared to dedicated international money transfer services, it can be more difficult to ensure that you’ve accounted for all possible fees.
