    they sure look interesting. I'm signed up but haven't committed funds yet.
    Sadly I have virtually no exposure to the US markets and the next few months seems like a good time to alter that, except of course the exchange rate is poor.
    I was just reading some Craigs output and they are big fans of the US economy Iit was the only geographical sector they were actually positive on.
    But I will be pretty cautious , competing with Wall Street wont be easy.
    For clarity, nothing I say is advice....

    there is always Craigs, if you're happy to pay handsomely for the privilege I guess.
    A couple of years ago it was getting harder to go offshore.... no one wanted to do it because of all the hassle - its quite amazing to me how Hatch seem to have taken all the pain away. Maybe they bought Maxigesic from AFT

    Same here. Been a happy user for some time. They also also have great exchange rates so I tend to use them for transferring NZD into AUD for my NABtrade account.

    As you can place a limit order, yes.

    These platforms make their money on FX conversion fees right?

    I see today that Sharesies appear to be working towards adding US Shares..
    ... the fine art of sniffing out debits & credits hidden under the carpet can pay dividends ...

    I could never understand the workings of Sharesies on how they manage their US ETFs on the FIF taxation issue. How are they addressing the 5% FDR on an annual basis and how would that apply to clients that may frequently buy and sell US based shares?

    Look at the case of buying NZ based managed funds that simply buy the US Vanguard ETF. When you go through a NZ broker, you have their set fees and commissions but the worse is the annual mgt fees by the NZ fund managers for merely just buying the Vanguard ETF. In comparison, I a person that has a US brokerage account, buys the same US Vanguard ETF and pays Vanguard's ultra low avg mgt of 0.08% per year. Are NZ based brokers and managed funds charging a huge fee for the administration to track FIF / FDR for all their clients?

    Early days yet to they launch - will have to see what they are doing to address each of areas, with US Shares
    & how competitive they are on what they intend offering

    US Shares are bound to be popular in places

    Personally I've stayed away from ETF's even on NZX - probably have to invest some time
    looking at these in the future

    They may be charging huge fees (no comments from me) but I doubt they are tracking FIF for their clients. Hey someone tell me if I'm wrong but they will leave all tax matters for the client to deal with. Which is of course the advantage of PIEs where you are all good.

    We can both get a free stock! (Nike, Dropbox or GoPro)

    I have started to use Stake and it is much cheaper than Hatch and easy to use. In Stake you can do unlimited free trades, commission free! All US Stocks and ETFs seem to be there. Would recommend
    Thank you!
