Thanks Asphodeli, this was very helpful! Wasn't expecting it to be a phone call from CSO.

These things need to be processed manually since there's no automated/computerized system to do it

Hey guys sorry for asking this question again.


I can't access 'Quote' on the trading platform when using my Mac.


Is anyone having the same issue?

Try again later, clear your cache and cookies. Then again SCB always has these little issues.
I can but I'm on pc.

I opened my securities and esaver account around Aug 2015. Can I close my esaver with no penalty charges? Reason being I'm planning to use my dash account to transfer fund to securities account to buy/sell shares. Want to circumvent the $1K minimum sum problem. Thanks

From stanchart website:

Early account closure fee (within 6 months) S$0

No charges.

Do you guys trade solely in Singapore market?

Advisable to open account in other market as well, like US?

You suffer a bad exchange rate using other currency for scb.
I personally trade US counters using SCB because I'm lazy to use Interactive brokers and my trades are small.

Thanks for the reply. I'm still weighing the pros and cons of opening account for diff market.

No maintenance fee for SCB right? Say I open an account each for SG and US but rarely trade on the latter?

Yes no maintenance free, no dividend handling fee, no corporate action fee.

Call the rm who did your application.
how to know who is the RM ? you ask them for their namecard after the application is done ? usually they wont tell u or give u a copy of the forms unless you ask

RM are human beings too. They are also usually wearing a nametag. Always make it a point to know their names and address them by name.

If you want to get promoted to management level, take this as an opportunity to practice your social skills and make it a habit. Address them by name and make eye contact. The most inspiring bosses at the minimum know everyone by name and above that, probably know something about your current job project, your family, interests etc
