Is it true that foreigners would be subjected to aggregate loan caps?

I am a foreigner and I have been living and working in singapore for a long time and I even made my own company. I have been borrowing money from time to time as an investment for my business but I pay off my debts on time. Is it true that we would now be subjected to aggregate loan caps? How would this affect us?

    No Name

    In a joint statement, the Ministry of Law (MinLaw) and Ministry of Manpower (MOM) said that foreigners living in Singapore will be subject to new aggregate loan caps and the self-exclusion framework for borrowing from licensed moneylenders just like Singaporeian citizens. This just implies that this will better protect foreigners such as yourself residing here and your/their employers from the effects of over-borrowing.

OCBC Frank Card offers young adults a great, no-fee way to earn cashback from social and online spend

OCBC Frank Card stands out for its low minimum spend requirement and annual fee waiver however, it’s not a great match for consumers seeking everyday cashback. Online spend on utilities, recurring bills, and school and hospital payments are all not eligible for rebate. Dining, groceries, and other categories are also not rewarded. Ultimately, OCBC Frank Card offers young adults a great, no-fee way to earn cashback from social and online spend. OCBC Frank Card is definitely worth consideration.
