International Shares. CommSec offers you access to global share markets, including the New York Stock Exchange and the London Stock Exchange. While the Australian share market offers some excellent investment opportunities, it makes up less than 2% of the world’s total by market capitalisation. So if you’re only investing in Australian shares, there’s still a whole world of investment potential you could be tapping into.
- Value for your money. Value means more than just CommSec’s low brokerage rates (from $10.001 per trade). It’s free to join and there are no ongoing fees. Value also means a great range of free research and trading tools, and an ongoing commitment to making your trading experience the best it can be.
- Join today. It’s free to join CommSec and you can be trading in as little as 5 minutes.
