    They have update the mobile apps, which is usefull for quick mobile trading. I think more importantly is you must have a good remiser. Do pm me for one, as my current remiser is good:)

    Good prepaid account fees as compared to other platforms. Have used it for a while to buy dividend stocks (ie. STI index), simple to put in orders. They also offer free investment classes monthly at their different outlets where you can learn more about how to use the Phillip POEMS platform, or other beginner investment knowledge.

    You can trade it for every shares you got however, the website is too complicated. There were missing functions and you have to find it yourself. There were too many steps. Not user-friendly

    PROS: - Zero commission for unit trusts, but I believe this is promotional, so enjoy while it last. Obviously they are fighting with FSM. Without this carrot, I will totally not use POEMs. CONS: - Worst website even with a 2.0 revamp in 2017. Very confusing, even for a simple action of withdrawing cash back to your bank. - To terminate a RSP, I have to submit a physical form

    I used 4 other local brokers before switching to POEMS around 1+ years ago. Pros: Can trade in much more overseas exchange markets especially in Southeast Asia. Allows multiple asset class access besides Equities. Such as CFD, FX, Unit Trust and Insurance. Allows keeping multiple currencies deposit and pays slightly higher interest than banks. The fees are reasonable. Have more reports, analysis, better charting tools. Allows Advanced Order types such as Stop Loss, Market Limit etc, which is crucial but are not available in those 4 other local brokers I have used. Can choose CDP account or Cash Account, which allows cheaper fees. Cons: The platform takes time to get used to. Not as user-friendly to navigate and somewhat messy. Occasionally it takes time to load and hang. I am still using POEMs for SGX-listed and Southeast Asia-listed shares. Otherwise for other markets, I still prefer my other overseas broker due to more cheaper fees

    I started my investment Journey with Poems first around 10 years ago before I switch platform Pros: Allows you to trade, different type of investment assets Cons: Poor user interface, currency are not converted automatically Re-visited it 3 years ago, open account under my friend's name. After going through its interface again, the same problems still remains. Therefore I did not use it, prefer my foreign brokerage accounts 🙂
