Choice of ETFs
At the moment, you can only buy and sell US-listed stocks and ETFs and SG-listed stocks, ETFs, and REITs on Brokerage.
Select Custom offers a broader range of ETFs such as those domiciled in Ireland e.g. iShares Core S&P 500 UCITS ETF (CSPX). UCITS ETFs offer certain withholding tax advantages compared to their US-listed counterparts.
