Subjective, much?

Which criteria matter the most to you?

Re: Mutual funds

Vanguard tracker funds have the lowest fees. Charles Schwab have low dealing costs.

Oh, your talking about annual fees, Postfinance is also 0, just fees can get very high relative to US brokers.

Re: Mutual funds

I use hargreaves lansdown, in pounds. They're decent, and you get special rates on fund charges but they also charge a standard 0.45% p/a charge for any funds. ETFs will avoid this...

Be aware that with HL you often get a better class of unit where the fees are possibly 0.3% less than normal. This is not available unless you invest 5,000,000 in the fund. So the net fee may be nearer 0.15%

I use Swissquote because (1) Their Safe custody fee for holding funds and other assets is capped at 200CHF per year. You can buy some preferred funds without being charged any buying commission. (2) They also offer competitive interest rates 3% if you need to borrow against your funds and stocks ("Lombard Loan")
