NZ Investing Platforms Compared

I wanted to once and for all figure out what the cheapest investing platform is in New Zealand so I decided to compare Sharesies, InvestNow, Hatch, Stake, ASB Securites and Jarden Direct. You will soon see that it is not as easy to compare them to each other since they all offer slightly different services and the type of investing you do determines which platform will be the best option for you.

Fees Calculator

This will calculate the total amount of fees paid over the lifetime of the investment. This includes FX fees, withdrawal fees and brokerage fees for each trade (in an out). For each country, the currency is assumed to be in that country's currency (exchanged at the current market rate) before applying the FX fee. For example X NZD becomes Y USD at the current exchange rate and then the % FX fee is deducted from Y.
