Finder Awards 2020 Best International Share Trading Account

This platform has over 20 international stock markets to choose from including Singapore, Russia and the Baltic Region. Brokerage fees for global stocks are low and a low currency conversion fee for US brokerage trading.


Methodology: Best International Share Trading Account

Here's how our expert analysts assessed the Best International Share Trading Account category to pick the 2020 winner.

We use a proprietary algorithm that calculates the ranking of our share trading platforms based on fees, features, available markets and user experience. For more information about how we calculated our categories, see Finder's share trading ranking page.

Due to the complicated nature of broker fees, we set these assumptions:

  • Where fees are priced in different global currencies, the rates are based on the exchange rate set as of 28 April 2020.
  • Where fees are based on a dollar per share structure, we've used a nominal share price of $10 per share.
  • In cases where fees are charged as a percentage of total holdings, we assume the total trade value per month is 10% of total holdings. For example, if you make 1 trade of $100 per month, the assumption is your total holdings equal $1000.
  • In cases where the broker offers both CHESS and issuer sponsored shares, we have used the least expensive option in terms of broker fees.

Selection and weighting

Our share trading algorithm prioritises global brokerage and foreign exchange fees as well as the number of global markets available on the app. We also remove any brokers that do not offer direct global share trading.
