  • This is a note of caution as I have had an experience that was not pleasant but a learnig experience. A few days ago, I went online to the trading platform and clicked on spdr gold shares and clicked cpf as mode of payment then clicked the button buy. As only 10% of investible savings can be invested in gold etf, i was called one fine day and told that the cpf board had revoked that trade and cash had been executed on my behalf. The broker sold it on the day he called me.. So long (and uncomrtable story) short, I had to go to ocbc centre south to settle in cash (not cpf)

I use scb for overseas stock purchases, the main disadvantage is the so-so forex rate when converting sgd to usd/hkd to fund my settlement accounts. On the flip side, there's no charges on dividend handling costs, counters costs etc. So good to use for long-term dividend stock buys with the intention to collect foreign denominated dividends. All relevant transaction costs are upfront in the form of trading costs & so-so forex conversion rate.

Most Stock Brokerage Account are linked to One CDP account. That's make buying and selling possible with different brokerage and for you will be OCBC and DBS. The only downside is transactions are not updated on the brokerage side if the buying and selling are not from the same brokerage. At all time, you should login to your CDP account to check your holdings. The downside about CDP is the pricing on average up or down is not reflected accurately so you can refer to the existing pricing reflected in your OCBC account before you delete any records from your OCBC portfolio record. From there, you can use the record you confirmed and type it into DBS portfolio record. Bear in mind you should delete the record which are redundant or are sold off by the different brokerage you used. In an event, you saw x shares in OCBC portfolio but you already sold off x shares using DBS portfolio. And if u sell the x shares with no x shares in CDP, it will be classify as short selling and you will be fine by SGX after paying the losses or receive the gain (unlikely) in the process. 我是不是很棒棒?

I had checked this in the past to include second account to CDP, unfortunately its not allowed - only one account at a time. Dividends paid by holding equities would be debited to the linked account.
