The Big Read: Private equity

Selling to yourself: the private equity groups that buy companies they own
A growing number of privately owned companies are being bought and sold by the same firm. Critics point to conflicts of interest

by Kaye Wiggins in Berlin (2 HOURS AGO)

QUOTE
“It is a myth that private equity investments are good investments to have in times of stock market turmoil,” says Eileen Appelbaum, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research. Continuation funds mask “an unpleasant truth”, she says, by enabling the private equity industry to keep doing deals that shelter their companies from valuations in the public markets.

The question, she adds, is for how long that can continue.

Yes, Wise is direct while Bank need to go through Forex Exchange.
Anyway you can check Ziet video on using Wise ACH to IBKR, more straight forward.

Just try. It is more strait forward and charges about the same as CIMB sg + Wise.

A little small disadvantage is that Wise is taking longer to process the transaction if transfer to IBKR ACH

The other way to see it is that you won't have to maintain a CIMB sg account. Then again, you may have other beneficial use for that account.

Well - like what you said, the upside is that it's a lot more straightforward, so you can always just plan ahead and transfer a larger sum of funds when available. That's what I've been doing anyway.

another downside of direct transfer using Wise to IBKR is that you could get audited by IBKR.
They will contact you for documents to prove the money is not related to fraud. Means you need to keep all your transfer receipts softcopy between local bank to Wise to IBKR. Previously got people here share about this incident before. It is random so means if you lucky won't kena, if unlucky then will get email from IBKR and you'll have a time limit to respond.

Also the above method, there was once I waited around 4-5 days before seeing the money in IBKR. I raise support ticket via chat also the lady tell me they cannot trace it since it is ACH type transfer. Only Bank Wire transfer they can trace.. also told me it's better using this method.

If using Local bank transfer to > Wise > Cimb SG (Wise to CIMB SG is instant) bank wire to> IBKR > pay USD2 for spot rate conversion SGD to USD then won't have this audit risk. Check Ziet Invest youtube he got teach the steps.
Also much faster using this method. The most in a few hours will see the SGD in IBKR already.

I mean you're investing for long term right.. so USD2 is not a big amount to pay to IBKR? Peace of mind also for your funds. That 3-5 days gap is big too if a stock is going up. If wanna save more then transfer a bigger amount.
CIMB SG also can open fully online, just need CIMB Malaysia account. CIMB SG can use to invest in Singapore stocks too.. hence it is useful to have.

Dear all, regarding tiered an fixed pricing, all the articles advised to go for tiered for low volume transaction.

But based on the latest pricing structure for APAC Singapore below, seems like fixed is now cheaper?

user posted image

Where:
1. Fixed pricing is always USD2 minimum without exchange charges
2. Tiered pricing is also always USD2 minimum but WITH exchange charges

What am I missing? thanks!
