Invest in international shares with ease and convenience.
It may come as a surprise to many Australian investors that the domestic stock market only accounts for approximately 2.2% of global market capitalisation.
As an investor if you are fully invested in the Australian share market it means you may be concentrating your investments only in the domestic market, which could be limiting your investment opportunities.
Whilst there are obvious benefits for investing domestically the arguments in favour of global diversification and exposure to other industries and sectors not available within Australia are compelling.
Bell Potter’s international equities service enables you to directly invest in equity markets in the United States, Japan, throughout Europe and the United Kingdom, as well as other major exchanges around the globe.
Steps to opening an account with Bell Potter:
Once you’ve made contact with an Adviser, they can arrange to either meet with you or speak over the phone to take you through the steps to becoming a client.
Your Adviser will explain our services, fees and what you can expect from us when you open an account including the paperwork and ID required. You will be given a Financial Services Guide, which explains our service and fees.
Execution only or Advice
You’ll need to decide if you want an execution only service (no advice) or personal advice on your investments. Either way, you’ll need to open a share trading account preferably linked to a Bell Potter Cash Account.
Statements of Advice
Before you receive advice, you’ll need to provide information about your current financial situation, your investment objectives, investment style, experience and expectations. This information is used to help provide you with the appropriate level of service and advice.
