The goal of these cards is to be the primary choice for the cards in your wallets. The card is in line with the Monetary Authority of Singapore’s requirements for customers who make use of online banking to utilize new security tokens that are enhanced with transaction signing ability from January 2013. In the near future, Standard Chartered is also looking to include contactless functionalities in the token cards.
