These are members in the Wealth segment who outspend regular The 1 members by 25X, and 80% of them are routinely active on The 1 APP. This segment is evidently crucial to the business of both The 1 and our partners. Hence, we are committed to ensuring optimal experiences for them. Therefore, we have assigned The 1 Exclusive team, who have been specially recruited for their highly diverse skills sets and deep comprehension of the Wealth segment, to look after and plan CRM strategy specifically for The 1 Exclusive members.”

One of the key behaviour trends we found lately is that over 80% of The 1 Exclusive members give precedence to what we can describe as ‘self-Indulgence in their way of living’, with Shopping, Dining and Traveling being the top three spending categories. Therefore, we opt to extend our Exclusive Privileges to provide greater coverage in these three lifestyle categories. By all means, we have continuously provided the Core Privileges our members favour, including: No The 1 point expiry; x10 The 1 points on birthday and special gifts in birth month; and exclusive parking area with free 4-hour parking.”
