Broker profile

Citibank Singapore Brokerage

The Singapore division of this multinational bank offers online trading for Singapore, the USA and now Hong Kong. The S$18 minimum commission for Singapore trades was previously the lowest available, but has now been beaten by Standard Chartered’s offer of no minimum commission. Rates for the USA are high given that it’s Citibank’s home market.

Applications from non-residents will apparently not be accepted, but the service would be unlikely to interest many international investors in any case.
