I only know, as long as CDP or the company accountant recognise you own the shares, you will get paid the dividend. Hence my broker tells me, as long as I buy within CD and sell when it shows XD, I will get the dividend.

I’m doing a mix of ETFs, both local and global... these are those more common ones you can look into, Global ETFs, like IWDA, EIMi, VWRD Local STI ETFs, like G3B and ES3 Local Bonds, like MBH and A35 You can use... POSB InvestSaver and OCBC BCIP for the local ones. As for the global ones, you can use SCB and IB.

I think the main fees to look out for are the commissions. All local brokerages should work fine for REITs as they have access to SG markets. If your brokerage account is linked to CDP and your bank account, dividends will automatically appear in your bank account when its paid out.

CDP will credit the dividends into the bank account you specified during account opening. If you need to change it, there is a form to do so.

Hi, I use Saxo to invest also. For my my dividends I received them directly into my Saxo account. Also depending on what currency your account is in your dividend may be converted to your account currency. E.g my account is in USD, so when I received dividends from my U.S investments I received them in USD, but if your account is in SGD and you received dividends in USD it will be automatically converted to SGD. so make sure you choose the correct currency for your account.

You don’t. no matter how rich a parent, you never know when they will stop giving you pocket money whether they cannot give anymore or they decided to stop giving. If companies cannot give dividends anymore, it may seem bad, but in bad times, this may also mean prudence in managing available funds. again, dividend is another portion of cash flow management. How companies manage dividends at various financial health is a piece of the puzzle that shows the whole picture.

Usually the dividends from foreign stocks are credited to your brokerage account. Because the stocks are held in custodian account of the broker. Tax on dividends depend on which country the stocks are from. US, 30% dividend tax. HK, no tax. Malaysia, yes. Can check with broker exactly which country and how much is the dividend tax

Hi, I am also looking into buying bank stocks too. I believe there is a correlation between bank stocks and US futures/US index. I always look at the futures to determine if it is the right time to buy. As US index closed lower so I expect the bank stocks to go down on Monday. I am looking at buying DBS and UOB. All three banks are good but I pick the ones that have higher dividend yield. DBS is giving $1.20/share for dividend from FY2018 onwards and UOB started giving $1.20 too after including the special dividend. I am looking at buying them at batches as I would expect that there is more room to drop.

To answer your first question, yes your dividends are re-invested back into the portfolio. It will go back into your account and it will be whon in the transaction statement monthly. In fact, I think most robo advisors witholding tax will all apply. If you transfer that amount into your Robo-advisor account (it is basically their bank account) the total amount will be managed by them (usually they will keep a small % as cash) but almost 95% or more will be invested based on your risk preference and appetite. Hope this helps!
