    In order to start investing in shares with your CPF, you need to be at least 18 years old and not an undischarged bankrupt and have more than S$20,000 in your OA. There are two methods to calculate how much you can invest using your CPF OA. If you want to invest your CPF OA in shares, you have to open a CPF investment account with an approved CPF investment scheme (CPFIS) agent.

    If you are like me an HSBC Premier client and also a frequent traveller that can maximize the number of priority pass visits, limo and meet-and-assist services as well as your supplementary cardholders too, then this is the card for you.
