yes your RM has a small cut of the commission.

what kind of extra services do you need? the commission is already so low.

but you can call your RM to help you sell the shares if online platform is down or get hold of the RM to follow up your share transfer requests.
Not extra service. Its no service at all. I had 2 RM in the last 6 mths, first one left, another one took over. In both instances, I only receive letters informing me who is my RM. After that absolute silence. Thought would at least have a follow up call to say 'hi' or what mah.

Don't be naive. Even for poems platform also will not hear from the rep. Just get on with your trade, any issue call or email them that's it. It's all business here, no hi bye

unless you trade at least few hundred k per trade, i dont think they would call you. if not they would be calling whole list of client everyday.

my SCB RM called me. I say I use SCB for investment only.
He was disappointed because he want to sell his insurance, mutual funds, nonsense funds, etc

Makan = makan by SCB to go drink kopi
Tax = makan by govt and into the pocket of white shirts?

I guess..

Nope. The fund aren't deducted but you can't use them again or move them out of the securities account. Just try it out yourself.

No, you will get whatever that was declared by the company. I had just received my AAPL dividends and I really got USD0.47 x number of shares I own.

The only thing deducted would be the 30% withholding tax.
