Hmmm the fact that they ask for banking details to register an account worries me a little bit.
Will do a bit more research on this lot first, but on the face of it the service looks promising.
Pfft, not like they can do any harm with it. Either way, I took the whole R500 and shoved it into DBXWD. I have 2c left unspent
Well they could setup debit orders and all sorts..
More just me doing my due diligence on the company behind this to see that its not "dodgy" at all....
Hopefully will be a quick enough thing, because I do like the idea and the costs of the product.
So I'm interested to find out as to why anyone would use a different broker than EasyEquities? Most brokers charge an annual administration/monthly account fee with a brokerage fee.
Certainly the 0.25% with no account fees is the cheapest around (taking in account no annual/monthly fees)? And lets forget for a moment about the fraction of a share contract and lets say you buy whole shares. Are these whole shares registered in your name as per same process of other brokers? Or does these 'whole shares' still belong to GT?
So imagine you sit with R1mil in value of ETPs at etfSA with a 0.4% annual charge. Thats a R4000 annual fee which could be removed by moving your portfolio to EQ right? Sure, the 0.25% brokerage fee is 0.15% higher than etfSA's brokerage fee, but still promising..
What is with the settlement date that's on 3 November 2014 when I bought yesterday. Can someone give me some insight on it please.
