Maybank Affluent banking is 500K.
Uob only $100k (wealth banking) and need not maintain that amount after opening account. It has more new and modern banking lounge than maybank!

Officially have to maintain $100k at all times.
But it seems that the bank does not actively ask for top up if it fall below after some months. No charges imposed too.
Maybe because their banking lounges are pretty empty most of the time except the one at Scotts.

thanks, only the one on Scotts is meaningful to me as the others are too far away for me.

uob 100K is for wealth banking, not privilege banking which is $350K.

Anyone on UOB Wealth Banking? I'm on SCB Priority Banking and I see the value as I have some accounts overseas, but I can't see any useful benefits for UOB Wealth Banking so thinking if it actually makes sense to dump $100K for just that.

Any ideas anyone?

UOB Privilege banking lounge is the classiest I have seen. Situated at 20th floor of MBFC, it comes with first class sofa and has a great view of Marina Bay. A bank officer will escort you to the banking lounge as you have to go through tight security. I am not a member but just ask the counter staff just to let me take a look .

In terms of number of banking lounges, I notice CitiBank has the most, but I guess they are just small sitting areas with TV, newspaper and drinks while you wait for your banking services. There are a few posh one as well, in Paragon and Church St. CitiGold service is worldwide and you may find some of their lounges in the airport.

Just pop in one of the banking lounge and ask them to show you around and tell you the benefits.

Unlike normal branch, in uob wealth centres, you wait at the comfortable banking lounge for your banking services and the counters only accessible by wealth banking customers are empty most of the time. The one at Scotts is the most popular. In normal branch, you can go to the priority queue.
