Invest with a leader in US markets

If you’re looking to invest in one of the world’s largest and most liquid economies, with a stable political and legal structure, then the US offers a wealth of diversification opportunities - from emerging technologies to healthcare and energy. With a GDP of over USD 15 trillion and a consumer market of more than 310 million people*, the US is home to the world’s most successful brands, including Apple, Google and Facebook. To help you maximise your US investing, here’s a few things to consider.

Which investment provider?

Choose an established company with a solid background in US equities – one that offers competitive trading rates, comprehensive coverage and fast order execution. Look for the highest standards of service, value and research.

Swissquote has a pioneering spirit, which we combine with world-class security thanks to our membership of the Luxembourg Deposit Guarantee Fund (FGDL), guaranteeing deposits up to EUR 100'000. In addition to this, Swissquote is a subsidiary of Swissquote, the Swiss leader in online banking with CHF 30.5 billion of client assets (as of 30/06/2019).

What are the specific advantages?

Swissquote enable customers to access advanced routing technology, leading to significant savings through price improvement. Reliable and agile trading systems enable you to react instantly to market movements and benefit from fast, high-quality order execution – the perfect solution for self-directed investors interested in US markets.

Which account?

If you’re in search of a central hub for all your international investments, you’ll benefit from a single account that’s convenient to access and easy to manage. Compare levels of service, terms and fees and don’t be caught out by hidden charges.

The Swissquote multi-currency investment account allows you to transfer in and hold up to 20+ currencies in different sub-accounts at no extra cost. You can reduce foreign exchange costs by settling trades in local money and change cash from one currency to another at competitive rates from just 0.2% with zero commission. Just think how much you could save by not having to convert currencies each time you place a US trade or receive a US dividend.

What about added value?

Pick an account that offers all you need to invest cost-effectively – including the tools, research and analysis to help you find specific investments and evaluate their potential. Savings from competitive commission fees can assist your portfolio’s net performance.
