first u need to have a saving account in SCB

e-Saver is FREE no need min
u have SCB SG Settlement acc


first u transfer fund from other bank to SCB e-Saver.

when the fund in the E-Saver, transfer it to the SCB SG Settlement acc if u want to buy SG Market.

the amt in the SCB Settlement acc is the purchasing power.

when u bid or queue any order, it will reduce the purchasing power.
Eg Settlement acc 50K
end of the day u bid 10K

the amt will deduct from the settlement Account T+3.

u can only transfer 40K back to E-Saver acc.

Amt in the settlement account do not earn interest i think.
thanks, that was very helpful.

1. The account in offer is a pre-paid account with no contra permitted;

2. The rate of 0.18% is only offered to accounts with $200K or more deposited with the Bank;

3. Shares under this account are kept under Standard Chartered Bank’s Nominees. Clients who subsequently wish to close the account or change brokers will incur transfer charges to transfer the shares to CDP.

4. The platform offered to this account is purely DIY online trading platform with no personalized services.

Based on the FAQ, there are interests being paid out in your settlement account. Just only I do not know how much is the interests being paid to the account holders.

The attractiveness of this SCB scheme is the NO MINIMUM COMMISSION.

- How they make money is where your money is to get you to dump your money into their bank so that funds which you did not use to purchase shares can be invested by them.

- The low entry barrier scoops up the mass market and also those who do a lot of intra day trading. Imagine the money these people can save on.

- SCB holds the shares, not CDP. You will need to buy and sell only through SCB.

Of course, there will be concerns by many because it looks too good to be true compared to the market standard.
However let's not forget, in foreign countries, this is already very common. And today we are not talking about ABC bank or XYZ bank. If its citibank rolling this out, I may have some concerns, but not Standard Chartered.

Their marketing campaign is weak but that's the irony. They got a lot of people interested with questions so that people actually go down to their bank branches to find out more. That is where this bank suddenly improves its network arm.

So eventually I must say, NO MIN COMMISSION might be an industry standard in time to come. Don't write it out.

Hmm... I just did a internal transfer from my Xtrasaver account to my SECURITIES SETTLEMENT ACCOUNT and the funds transfer is immediate. So I think E-savers should be the same ba.
