About Prosperus by CGS-CIMB

CGS-CIMB has had a long history and heritage in the capital markets, starting over 40 years ago in 1979 as GK-Goh Securities, and evolving today into a leading regional financial services provider.

Why choose Prosperus?
Wide global market available
There are many online brokerages in the Singapore market but most of them focus on the Australia, China, Hong Kong, Singapore and US markets.
For Prosperus, apart from supporting stock trades in China, Hong Kong, Singapore and US markets, investors can also participate in bonds, ETFs and mutual funds in the wider global market.
For example, it allows me to build up a portfolio in highly rated ETFs trading on the London Stock Exchange:
- iShares Core MSCI World UCITS ETF (IWDA:xlon)
- Vanguard FTSE All-World UCITS ETF (VWRA:xlon)

London Stock Exchange: A Cheat Sheet for New Investors
“The exchange operator is itself listed – as London Stock Exchange Group PLC (LSE: LSEG) – while London’s stock market is one that hosts many “old economy” stocks, such as oil & gas companies, banks and tobacco firms.”

Staying safe from scammers
Be wary of scams that can take place in the form of online stock recommendations from unofficial sources or informal chat groups.
Scammers might impersonate real people from genuine financial services firms to tempt you into investing in any recommended stocks/investment products. Some scammers might use spoofed or unofficial social media accounts to spread and disseminate false information.
You can protect yourself and others by observing the following:
- Change your privacy setting in your messaging apps to prevent others from adding you to random investment chat groups.
- Be wary of stock tips/ recommendations from unofficial sources (e.g. Social Media platforms/Messaging App)
- Do your research before investing in any investment product
- Check the credentials of the supposed company or representatives using sources such as MAS Financial Institutions Directory, Register of representatives and Investor Alert List.
