Share Trading: Nominee vs Direct CDS account

Did you ever notice that when you open a share trading account with a broker, they will usually ask you whether you prefers nominee or direct CDS account? For an ordinary investor, we might not really understand what are the differences and benefits that you can enjoy for both types of CDS (Central Depository System) account.


Well, this is the very basic step every share trading investors should find out first, before approaching a share broker. Equipping yourself with the relevant basic knowledge in order to avoid starting at the wrong footstep. Agree?

This article may help you to understand the differences between these two type of account. Please refer to below comparison tables:


Account Opening Stage

How about the Trading Fees?Generally, the charges are the same for both accounts. Whereby, the normal brokerage fee is 0.42% per transaction with minimum RM12 for online transaction or minimum RM40 for offline transaction. Meanwhile, the clearing fee is 0.03% per transaction and stamp duty of RM1 per RM1,000 contract value.

How about Collateral Limit?
For those account which gave you some trading limit based on how much collateral you pledged into your trading account. Collateral such as cash and shares would give you a limit of 2-3 times of the total value pledged. This is good for those traders who want some flexibility, so that he/she still can buy shares although he/she don't has so much cash inside their trading account yet. Of course, investors need to settle the outstanding amount within T+3 trading days.

After Trading Stage


By comparing both account, share investor who owns a Direct Account can enjoy better savings on the "after trading" charges. However ,the main advantage that a Nominees Account holder can enjoy is the service of a share broker. The paperwork of corporate actions sometimes is very hard for investors to understand and make decision. And, many investors might missed out in replying those corporate actions if they were a direct account holder. If you're a nominee account holder, please make full use of your nominee charges. In summary, there is advantages and disadvantages to both accounts.


PS: All Margin/Pledge /Foreign Trading accounts are treated as Nominees CDS account.

    1. Hi, good to hear that. For corporate exercises such as rights issue, direct CDS account holders have to submit back the relevant forms with payment after receiving the letter directly from that particular listed company. Thanks.

  4. Do you think that to dramatically improve your success rate you have to read tons of thick books, buy expensive software and spend countless hours of learning more about Forex?

    What I'm going to share with you is something very EASY to use and very POWERFUL at the same time.

    Let me give you an EXAMPLE:

    Imagine you trade a system that makes 50% winning trades, but another 50% are losing trades. If you increase your odds of winning by only 20%, that would make 70% winning trades and 30% losing trades.

    Well, HOW TO accomplish that?

    Just pick the best trending pair at the current time and simply follow the trend! I have found ONE INCREDIBLE TOOL that continuously scans the Forex market and picks the most reliable trending pairs for you.

    ==> http://www.forextrendy.com?ljsjhd8374h

    By taking signals in the direction of a strong trend you would REDUCE UNNECESSARY LOSSES and increase the odds of winning. You need to know "how well" the market is trending to avoid very short-term trends.

    STOP hunting the market for every potential trade. Pick only the best trending pairs and time frames and DO NOT take any trading signals in the choppy market (unless you know exactly what you are doing).

    Successful traders keep it simple and this is the way how the pros made fortunes in the markets - by trading less and making more.

    To increase the profitability of any system or robot you are currently using, check out this easy and powerful ultimate solution:
