Some questions customers are asking...
There's no catch when it comes to $0 brokerage. We just ask you to share Stake with friends to help us grow.
Trading costs in the US are already super cheap and we've kept our costs low so we can pass those onto you.
What's the catch with $0?
Stake makes money when you move your funds between AUD and USD. Not when you trade.
We also make money by collecting interest on cash sitting in the USD accounts, much like a bank does on cash deposits.
In time, we'll develop pay-for services and products that add additional value to your trading experience.
How does Stake make money?
You can sign up and fund your account in 5 mins and be trading in the US market that same day.
If you fund your account before 4pm AEST and elect Express Funding your funds will be in the US before the market opens.
Currently this is available if you fund by card, but will soon be available for all payment methods.
What is Express Funding?
Rest assured your assets are safe.
Stake never touches your money. Your assets are always registered in your name with our partners, Macquarie Bank, OFX and DriveWealth. We're just the platform bringing it all together.
Your US cash and securities are insured for up to USD$500,000 by the SIPC if a broker-dealer falls over.
