Quick review

My go-to international brokerage. Interactive Brokers is a publicly traded American multinational brokerage (Nasdaq: IBKR) with a presence in 100+ countries and offers a wide variety of products including stocks, options, futures, forex, and even bonds.

When asked about brokerages, I generally recommend Interactive Brokers for expats and people living overseas.

Here's why:

  • Low fees. Commissions start at $0 and go up to 1% per order. FX is 0.002% with $2 USD min.
  • Broad selection. Buy stocks and funds across 150+ markets.
  • Geo coverage. Available in 100+ countries. Most brokerages will shut down your account after you relocate. With IBKR, keep your account open even after you move abroad.
