yup, just very low interest for monies parked there.
The foreign broker also charges a transaction fee, but thats all. no holding fee

Just for everyone's info, Hong Leong foreign share trading only does NYSE Nasdaq and Amex.
So if you want VOO which is on ARCA, go for another broker.

er.. online platform yes, U are right.
For ARCA buys, if one is one HLeB - one can just call / traditional-style
Of course best if can do online la but if one has limited resources (ie. no US stock a/c or SG stock a/c that can do US), why not

This is good news, then i  just wonder why have that condition that disallow malaysian addresses ........

Why include such a 'loose condition' to control when people can easily avoid.......

Malaysian govt tried to stop us investing in US??
US brokers do not want malaysian moneys?
Surely the malaysian govt can do better than such lousy loose condition to control us.......
or are there some hidden sticks that the govt can use later on for such accounts?
*
maybe money laundering concerns?

Yes, perhaps like what dreamer shared.
However, since i was lucky (already have an OX account), i'll play with time to do it "properly" - don't want kaka to happen somehow later.
That's just me - chicken little  sweat.gif

better safe than sorry
for now i'll stick to HLB and will be calling them on monday for the VOO shares.
