      Unable to perform trades due to “high volume” issues for over 3 days. No way to open a support ticket with them unless it’s via call only during office hours. DBs doesn’t manage any customer feedback or complaints and refer you back to the Vickers hotline. Terrible experience.

      [Commission Rates] They are a CDP holding account so rates will be higher. I use them for my SRS investments since the costs are relatively trivial over a longer timeframe. [User Interface] One way of looking at it is that they offer the 'retro' 90s experience. Charms of a forgotten age! [Customer Service] Serviceable if you call them but error messages are cryptic if trades fail and no other real alternative than calling them. Process still involves manual paperwork for most service requests. [Products Offered] Pretty broad coverage but I haven't used all of them due to SRS allowed products limitations. Overall, just about OK for SRS transactions especially if you already have a DBS relationship for other stuff. It helps jump through DBS Multiplier hoops for the highest interest rate so one persists.

      I think DBS Vickers is pretty lacking compared to the online brokerages out there, like the stock charts etc and the interface is not that great

      [User Interface] Vickers is no doubt stuck in the 90s with its poor UI and pre-millennium features. Definitely won't recommend this to any of my buddies.

      DBS Vickers' Cash Upfront Account is the best in class at the moment, probably due to lack of strong competition, its reasonable trading fees, and most importantly, automatically transferring my purchased shares to my own CDP account. Other local brokerages are generally custodian-based accounts hence their lower trading fees.

      [Commission Rates] The commission fee on DBS Vickers is very expensive unless you use their Cash Upfront function. [Market Access] I used it to buy SG stocks in the past to store them in my CDP. [User Interface] Outdated user interface and not user-friendly. Their mobile app is horrible.

      [Commission Rates] The commission rate on DBS vickers is pretty high relative to other brokerages available. [User Interface] Both web interface and mobile app interface are very outdated and not user friendly - Just enough for users to carry out basic transactions

      [Commission Rates] Definitely higher cause you own your stock. What else could you said? =) [User Interface] Not the best in app, hopefully the latest upgrade will be a hit. [Others] My thought is suitable for long term dividend stock holders. E.g- Reits.

      [Commission Rates] Commission rate and transaction fees are relatively high compared to custodian platforms. [Others] Transfer of funds/fiat to account will take 3-4 business days to complete which is quite slow IMO
