Brokerage accounts for US Citizen residing in Singapore

Post by mbert » Sat Feb 23, 2019 10:49 pm

My understanding for non registered brokerage accounts is that you cannot hold a US brokerage account while residing in Canada and vice versa. I was wondering if there is a similar provision for US citizens residing in Singapore? Can a US citizen living in Singapore maintain a non registered US brokerage account? Any info on this or relevant sources would be much appreciated.

The best source would be your broker. The reason one cannot have these accounts while in Canada is because it contravenes CANADIAN, not US, regulations. Singapore may or may not have such regs.

Okay much appreciated, thanks nelsona. To your point, I touched base with my brokerage and can confirm as of now there are no issues for a US citizen living in Singapore maintaining a US brokerage.
