Those who buy and hold long term better convert your brokerage account to CDP as custodian to avoid unnecessary quarterly maintainance fees by brokerage. I recently did that.

Some more can jiak buffet at AGM. Bang table is optional hahaha.

Looks like this a good deal for cash upfront into CDP

still worth it if we include the holding and dividend fees?

Looks like DBS Vickers Cash Upfront is currently the cheapest brokerage for buying stocks, at net 0.06% commission rate, if you buy the correct amount

What do you mean by correct amount? As in number of shares bought?

As in value. I think if you buy around 8k of share you pay $10 comm (0.12%) but you get a further $5 rebate

Guys, I'm pretty new, and would like to seek your advice.

I'm on StanChart now, and I understand that SC is a custodian of all my shares bought on that platform (not really comfortable with the arrangement though).
I'm thinking of investing via another platform (Smartly.sg) since I do a lot of ETF investing anyway. Should I close my StanChart account and move my shares to another account (is that how it works)?

What do you think I should do?

Smartly also keeps your shares in a custodian account... Why do you need to close your StanChart account anyway? Currently there is no fees for maintaining an account, so why not keep it open? Selling/transferring will probably incur fees too.

but i think they are one of the cheapest (if you are priority customer), in the unlikely event they go under, creditors wouldn't be able to touch your shares, it is separate from SC's assets. i am using them too, have checked this part with them...
