Child Portfolio - "Apr 17 - SG Transactions & Portfolio Update"

We celebrated my elder son 3rd birthday during the weekend and thought I'd do my usual annual update on his portfolio on his birthday.



As part of the annual exercise, I'd try to top up his equity position by giving him presents in the form of stock shares, which would help him compound over his years of growing up.

Given that Singtel has been dropping recently, I added 300 shares of Singtel on the belief that it presents decent long term value.

He now owns a total of 2 companies, with ST Engineering still forming the majority of his portfolio.

    1. Hi Anonymous

      I am still using my own cdp account though for tracking purpose I separate it out. When he's old enough, I'll open one for him and transfer the shares to him.

    1. Hi SPR

      I don't have much too when I was in my 20s, no worries you're still very young to ride the many years ahead in front :)

  4. Hi there,

    Can the shares ownership be transferred under SGX rules?
    How do we go about doing that?
    And whats the the minimum age to open a CDP account? Is it 18 or 21?
