The last I check, you pay $10.70 to transfer every 1000 shares to CDP.
If they close, there should not be any charges to transfer out .. on good will basis.

Let's hope for good will in transferring out if scb closes stocking Broking biz. We can only hope, if charges per lot basis. Some people will have pain... The no min charges, system maint and handling of stock dividend, rights and call back may results in high cost not factored in previously.

Standard Chartered Said to Shut Global Equities Business
2015-01-08 02:23:46.641 GMT


By Joyce Koh and Fox Hu
(Bloomberg) -- Standard Chartered Plc is closing its global
equities business, according to people with knowledge of the
matter.
Operations to be shut include cash equities, equity capital
markets and equity research, said the people, who asked not to
be identified discussing a private matter. The London-based
company will keep its convertible bonds and equity derivatives
businesses, said one of the people.
The closures will affect more than 200 people in Asia,
another person said. Piers Townsend, a spokesman for the company
in Singapore, declined to comment.
Chief Executive Officer Peter Sands is targeting about $400
million of cost savings this year as he tries to reverse profit
declines. The bank posted a 16 percent drop in third-quarter
pretax profit to $1.53 billion from a year earlier as
impairments for bad loans almost doubled and regulatory and
compliance costs increased.
Shares of the U.K. bank rose as much as 2.2 percent in Hong
Kong, the biggest gain in almost three weeks, and traded at
HK$113.40 at 10:12 a.m. local time.
Separately, Standard Chartered will this quarter reduce its
headcount in Malaysia by 11 percent, according to a memo
obtained by Bloomberg News.

they do until so cheap, no min comm, no custodian fees etc...
cheap but don't make $$ also not realistic ba

like imagine people buy 100 shares of a $1.00 stock... $100 the commission 20 cents nia.. how to survive? Brokerage house the back office a lot of cost one... compliance, operations, nominees, customer service, IT... etc

discount brokering only works unless u have a very big market share in countries such as US (example E-Trade http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E-Trade) to be a successful discounter, most important is economies of scale.. probably in revenues of hundreds of millions.. or like E-Trade over the billion dollar mark, if every year do billions of trade, each make few cents or dollars still can be very profitable. Like for E-Trade total rev is 1.7bil but net profits 80mil nia, stand chart probably was bleeding $$ just to capture market share, rest in peace man

heng I using local brokerage house nia, so not affected

those having all your assets in SCB please be careful

cheers
