Interactive Brokers Review

โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…
"For most individual investors, Interactive Brokers is simply one of the best platforms. While beginners might find its interface and features complex, the platform is a treasure trove for those willing to scale the learning curve. It is suitable for most passive investors."

SAXO Review

โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜†
"A few years ago, SAXO wouldnโ€™t be on our radar. It was a fairly expensive platform built mainly for traders. However, since their acquisition of the Dutch Bank BinckBank, part of the focus has shifted towards long-term investors."

DEGIRO Review

โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜†
"If youโ€™re looking for a low-cost broker, and donโ€™t mind paying marginally more than with its competitors, DEGIRO is a very good choice. The advantage? You invest your money with a more transparent broker than most VC-funded direct competitors that have just a few years of track record."

Hargreaves Lansdown Review

โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜†
"HL has everything you need to conduct a wide range of basic to fairly complex investing activities, but youโ€™ll need to be smart to manage costs carefully."

Vanguard Investor UK Review

โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜†
"Vanguard Investor is a great choice for hold and buy investors managed by one of the most reputable global asset managers. "
