Thanks BBC! I think granted we cannot really tell how much the dividends are reinvested back to us or given the the fund managers.
Umm..... Seriously?

newbies here. yeah...it is buy-and-hold for me....but still a bit frightening to see the drop in the last few weeks.

Considering now either to buy more IWDA/EIMI or explore new other ETFs....any thoughts?

Thank you for the answer. Just one clarification on the dividend tax holding part. Lets say the dividend is 1 dollar. If the ETF pays a dividend, I would receive 0.85 Dollar after the 15% tax. If the dividend is reinvested, the reinvested amount would be 1 dollar or 0.85 Dollar.

Thank you.

Yes.


No. The fund manager pays any/all foreign taxes within the fund, including the 15% Irish treaty tax rate on U.S. stock dividends (for example). So the reinvested dividends are net of tax, all handled within the fund itself. Check the prospectus for details, but that's my understanding.

For non-U.S. persons who are residents of Singapore, and at least for personal accounts, that's the end of the tax story. If you're a U.S. person, or if you're a resident of another country, there may be tax consequences beyond what the fund is handling.

So is iwda a good option to start with currently?

For DCA I think most will advise not to time the market for entry.

Nonetheless, if swing in properly in this Italian saga with a block purchase, may get a good starting point for subsequent DCA.

Thank you for replying. Totally agreed with you.

I was actually asking about “iwda” as a DCA instrument, not about “timing”...

These stocks are listed in USD, would it be possible to do over the counter deposit in USD into the settlement account within SCB?

Not sure if you can directly deposit USD into your USD settlement account but if you can, you'll likely incur handling fees.

Open USD High Account with SCB, they waive the 1.5% commission when you make deposits in USD. No minimum balance. From this account then transfer??

If you qualify for USD High, sure, I guess.

It's only available to SCB priority customers.
