Re: Director Fee vs. Salary

Re: singapore stocks and bonds for foreigners

Yes, of course you can open up accounts to trade in local stocks and bonds, including overseas stocks and bonds. You will need to open a bank account in Singapore (which you can) to manage the funds.

Re: Other avenues for Investment?

However with the increasing vacany rates across KL and Selangor for condos and sohos, the rental yields are coming down dramatically. A condo I bought in Ampang Hilir, KL, on ...
