Need recommendations

Post by mojojojo » Tue Nov 08, 2011 8:43 am

Looking for a broker to handle non-US client that allows me to trade listed securities (mainly ETFs) on at least the LSE, access to other exchanges are a plus. This will be for an entity based out of Singapore.

Being based in the US, I'm looking for a good starting point. I know that I can google places, I prefer if being able to talk to actual users.

Interactive Brokers allows customers (both US and Non-US) to trade on the LSE as well as many other exchanges throughout the world.
IB could therefore be a starting point for your research.

Here is the IB page for LSE products containing 2477 stocks
(you can check to see if your ETF's are amongst these)

Here is the main products & exchanges page
http://individuals.interactivebrokers.c ... f=products


Hope that helps

My accountant is always ribbing me about how many banks and brokerages I have my money spread over... fortunately MGF was not one of them, for no particular reason.

I did have a near miss with Tricom in Australia. I closed my Tricom account only because of high fees, poor service and a generally bucket-shop atmosphere.

This may have been answered before but is it possible to buy brokerage insurance? I was thinking you could buy way out of the money puts on the company (with a different broker of course!) but is there a better way?

Thanks for the link. I will definitely check them out. Didn't know that IB had non-US division.
