Some questions customers are asking...
How does Stake make money?
What happens if Stake is no longer around?
Stake is built to give Australian self-directed investors, who have been waiting too long for uncomplicated access to the US equity markets.
Our audience are looking beyond micro investing and see the US share market as a considerable part of their portfolio.
You can check out Stake with small dollar amounts to see if it works for you. You can continue to make FX transfers of any amount (above $500) but from September, any amount below $2,500 will incur the $5.00 fee.
