Was curious what MLP was and found the below. Once I saw the mention of CPA exam and the rest of intricaticies of the US tax code, running away as fast as possible :) Suggest you reach out to professional tax adviser as this would need specialized expertise to answer definitively. https://seekingalpha.com/article/243699-tax-implications-for-foreign-mlp-investors

Hi Rasyad! Tax issues may be tricky because each individual's circumstances can be different. But in general, Singaporeans living in Singapore who want to invest in US-listed stocks have to sign the W8-BEN form (something your broker should be happy to help you with). The form declares to the US government that the individual is a non-US resident. Once the form is signed and submitted, the individual will have to pay WHT (withholding taxes) of 15% on dividends from US-listed stocks. Typically, the WHT will already be deducted by the time your broker passes you the dividends from your US-listed stocks, so there's nothing you have to do. There will also be no capital gain taxes on US-listed stocks once you've signed and submitted the W8-BEN form.

Hi anon, I'm going to make an inference here and assume that you won't have any issues with regards to an emergency fund or insurance coverage. With that said, let's look at the considerations for your question. $24K/yr dividends at 5% can be achieved through a combination of high yield bond funds, balanced funds, REITs and equities. You will want to analyze which holdings can give you sustainable and consistent payouts, have strong fundamentals and good management. This will be doable for REITs and equities, less so for funds, but still not impossible. Once that's done, have an idea of how you want to allocate your portfolio in terms of position sizing. You should not have too much concentrated in a single stock or UT, but not so many holdings that managing and monitoring become difficult. Once you have an idea of which holdings you want, you can then look at your entry prices. It is better to wait for a good price rather than jump the gun and deploy all $480K at one go. It might take a few years to deploy your funds, but there's no harm in treading with caution. Once you have achieved $24k/yr dividends, it's a matter of monitoring and adding on when opportunities allow or taking profit if your holding has run up. Over time, saving part of your dividends and re-injecting into the portfolio will allow you to increase your payouts. Just note that by going with a fully variable investment, you are exposed to market risk, so there will be times that your dividends may be reduced, so in time to come you will want to take your variable payouts and convert them to guaranteed sources of income to increase the reliability of your payouts as you approach retirement.

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!

Hi anon, are you referring to the source of information? If that is the case, for stocks, I prefer to refer to the annual report of the company for my data and conduct my own analysis on them. For starters , you can try - http://reitdata.com/ - https://www.investing.com/ - SGX stocks screener If you are looking for a source in terms of strategy, I would advise you to do some reading and develop your own philosophy.

Not really answering. I'm adding more questions to this post for the gurus out there. Are the investment accounts really referring to Investment company type investments, i.e they are investing for stock yield? Or are they investing in companies that can help with their growth? (e.g. companies can manufacture parts they need, companies that are working on future technology that can be added to their future release?) If it's the 2nd, it would make sense, I think. Asking cause I've read some US reports that highlighted how Apple was working on new AI & AR technologies. Also there are reports on how some big tech firms are using technology from smaller firms instead of competing with them (eg amazon)

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.
