I am living here since more than 10 years. I am considering buying Thai stocks. How can I buy Thai stocks? Do I need an account with a stock broker? Which is the best with lowest fees? Can I open an account online? -  I would like to trade online. I will not trade forex. Only stocks and only Thai stocks. I checked Bualuang Securities and found their fees hefty. I have a Bank account with Bangkok Bank.  Please no foreign brokers. Any ideas/experience appreciated.

I have no idea about Thai stocks and buying them online, it's hard enough to find trustworthy European brokers and American one which isn't registered in some bullshit countries such as Cyprus and have crap regulators like CYSEC that don't protect you and find ones regulated in the UK by the FCA or in states by FINRA. But if you live in BKK, they're plenty of local brokers/businesses who have offices you can visit and you can go discuss in person about your options and if you're looking for low risk or high-risk stocks and they can set up a portfolio for you. Then you will be assigned an account manager, who will deal with you and keep you updated on everything. I have a Thai friend who specifically deals and works in the stock market for a reputable company, but his company only deal with 'big clients' in 'Thai terms' at least 5 million+ thb deposits. How much are you looking to invest? I can put you in touch with him if you're looking to invest that sort of money and he would set up a meeting for you to come to his companies office and discuss in detail more.

Bangkok Bank has similar options like others. I use Bangkok Bank for so-called Fund Books, which are mutual funds, whilst I invest in SET (Stock Exchange of Thailand) via my SCB account.

 

I replied before to a similar question recently, you might be interested in my post, even it's based on my SCB experience...

You're welcome to ask questions, if you think I can help you further...🙂

I am also interested in this topic. I have a good idea about UK companies and the UK markets but want to look further here. More information on Maybank in the way of feedback from the users above would be welcomed. I also would appreciate any feedback on how things go with regards to income tax on dividends and sales (hopefully profits) if already in possession of a work permit and paying the higher tax bracket on income. Any pointers or links would be gratefully appreciated. Thank you.
