What are Singapore stocks and how does it work?

Singapore stocks refer to stocks listed on the Singapore Exchange (SGX). Investors or traders can purchase Singapore stocks off the SGX with a brokerage account. This brokerage account can be opened with any broker of choice.

Reasons to invest in Singapore stocks

Investors have the option to invest in financial markets of many different countries. With Singapore stocks, there is a sense of familiarity – they may be brands you shop at, bank with or use on a daily basis. Examples of such ‘homely’ stocks include DBS, CapitaLand, ComfortDelGro and Sheng Siong.

Setting goals with Singapore stocks

Your investment goals help to determine your investment style and the products you invest in. Example of goals include:

  • A comfortable retirement
  • Buying a house or car
  • Financial freedom
  • Paying for your child’s education
  • Starting your own business

You can have multiple investment goals. With Singapore stocks, many investors look to generate passive income, investing in stocks that regularly pay out dividends, such as bank stocks or Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs).

Understanding types of investment products

Products available for you to trade include:

  • Stocks
  • Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)
  • Bonds
  • CFDs
  • Indices
  • Forex
  • Commodities
  • Derivatives

Getting started with your CDP and trading accounts

You will need a Central Depository (CDP) account to buy and sell shares on the SGX. Your CDP account safekeeps the securities that you purchase. Read more about the CDP account.

You will also require a brokerage account. In Singapore, you can choose between a CDP-linked account or a custodian account. Compare the pros and cons of a CDP-linked vs custodian account here.

Know your brokers and how to choose the best brokerage

You can choose a brokerage firm based on factors such as:

  • Fees
  • Investment products available
  • Market access
  • Promotions
  • Tools and indicators provided
  • Investment insights and educational materials available
  • Platform interface and user experience

How do I buy stocks in Singapore Exchange (SGX)?
To buy stocks on the SGX, you will first require a Central Depository account (CDP) that safekeeps the securities you purchase. This includes stocks, bonds and other securities listed on the SGX, as well as Singapore Government Securities. You will also require a brokerage account to execute the trades.
How do I trade SGX stocks?

To trade Singapore stocks, have to use your brokerage account or have your broker execute the trade for you. If you are using your brokerage account to trade, do keep a look out for the price you are buying or selling the security at, as well as the number of units you are trading. The SGX trading hours are 09:00am to 05:00pm with a mid-day break from 12:00pm to 01:00pm.

How many stocks are there on SGX?

There are hundreds of stocks on the SGX for you to choose from. Besides stocks, you can also find fixed income products, derivatives and more on the SGX.

What to look out for when buying stocks?

When buying a stock, base your decision on some of these factors:

  • Stock price
  • Dividend yield
  • Market capitalisation
  • Price-to-Earnings Ratio
  • Earnings per share (EPS)
How can I invest in stocks without a broker?
If you’re looking to invest without having to open a brokerage account yourself, you can consider other investment vehicles such as robo-advisors. You can also start a regular savings plan with a financial institution.
Which broker is best for trading?

You first have to decide if you prefer a brokerage account that is CDP-linked — useful for SGX stocks whereby the stocks purchased under your name will be credited into your CDP account. Alternatively, you can also consider a custodian account, sometimes referred to as a pre-funded or cash upfront account. You can have multiple brokerage accounts linked to your CDP account.


What constitutes the best online brokerage depends on your investment decisions and personal preference. To help you with your decision, you can check out this article on the best brokerage accounts in Singapore.
Can foreigners invest in Singapore stocks?

Yes, foreigners can invest in Singapore stocks. Similar to Singaporean investors, foreigners can also open a CDP account and brokerage accounts.
