The Singapore Pawnbrokers Association (SPA) was established in 1920 to educate the public about the pawn business and bring together pawn brokers to improve the trade. Since our establishment we have been dedicated to promoting professionalism, ethical conduct, and regulatory compliance among our members.
Throughout our one century of establishment, the SPA has fostered collaborative efforts and advocacy, aimed at elevating industry standards, foster trust with stakeholders, and contribute to the socio-economic needs of local residents. As the leading authority in the pawnbroking sector, we provide a platform for knowledge exchange, networking, and collective action, empowering our members to contribute to serving both the needs of the industry and the community.
With a commitment to integrity, innovation, and customer satisfaction, we continue to uphold our founding principles while adapting to the evolving landscape of the pawnbroking industry.
