Well, I think you will have to pay for the stamp duty. What kind of exchange allows certain investors using certain platform to siam stamp duty? :/

The stamp duty is imposed by LSE, not SCB. But I heard they are going to do away with this one.

One newbie question to ask...

I understand that SCB is the custodian of the shares which means I can only sell through them. What's the biggie compared to holding inside my CDP when both allows me sell the shares if I wanted to?

What is is that I am missing here?

You are not missing anything. The concept you have to grasp here is that of the role of a custodian. Both SCB and CDP, as well as POEMS and a few others, provide custodial services of shares. The very reason why CDP is always mentioned is because it is big and many Singaporeans associated them with shares trading and investment.

it is the transaction charges. 0.2%. Worth it if stock price is less than SGD9.

Yeah I know the pros side of SCB. Just confused to why do people see SCB worst off as the custodian when compared to CDP, unless SCB could be gone in near future which is not the case?

I would say it is more of a perception by most traders and investors here.

CDP has been around for so long, and it has been associated with SGX, therefore it is perceived to be safe. To some, the very thought of shares being held by someone else other than CDP is considered "unsafe", and furthermore global banks had taken the flak due to the Great Recession period of 2008-2009.

SCB, what is the requirements to open a trading account? Im pissed as I visited a branch with my money to open a trading account and was told I could not because:

1) I dont hold a degree
2) I dont have experience in trading
3) I dont work in related sector.

It is not SCB requirement - it is MAS mandatory requirement for all individual retail investors. You need to be tested / assessed for each individual brokerage account.

Customer Knowledge Assessment & Customer Account Review Phillip Futures Portal

What is this SGX online quiz you are advising me to do? http://sgx.com/onlineeducation/speci...stmentproducts
The SGX Quiz is an online module by the SGX exchange to educate investors on listed SIPs. Completing the module and passing the SGX online quiz will qualify you for the CAR Assessment to trade Futures/Options.

well MAS treat normal shares as non-sip



only scb treat normal shares as sip

So you need not to be tested / assessed for each individual brokerage account if you are not interested to buy SIP
