Why link your CDP Account?
A CDP Linked Cash Management Account, is ideal for those who prefer to place their Singapore stocks and bonds within the Central Depository (CDP) for peace of mind and convenience.
Benefits of a CDP Linked Account
Easy Dividend Transfer
Your stock dividends or bond coupons will go directly into your bank account linked to the CDP.
No Custody Fee & Corporate Action Handling Fee
Corporate actions include dividends, rights issues, and stock splits.
Receive invitations to Annual General Meetings (AGM) as a shareholder and vote directly.
Although stocks and bonds under the custody of brokers are legally protected from broker insolvency, enjoy peace of mind by keeping these assets directly under your name with your CDP Account under the Singapore Stock Exchange (SGX).
Direct share ownership
Shares and bonds are directly held under your name with the CDP.
Singapore Government Bonds (SGS) and Treasury Bills (T-bill) bought through ATMs are also kept within your CDP Account.
