Re: Platforms & Investing for Retirement

1) I haven't heard about any others with comparable fees. The only caveat I've found with VIAC is that they adjust their interest on cash down quicker than other options. But I guess whether you get 0.1% or 0.2% is negligible ...
I'm happy with VIAC so far.

2) No clue.

3) I'm also using InteractiveBrokers and I like it a lot. I also, rarely, use Swissquote when I want to trade in Switzerland, so far it seems to be 16CHF (+ MwSt.) per quarter when you held anything other than cash and free if you didn't.

4) I would use the address where you currently reside. I don't think it matters much though.

5) At least for my account the UK investor protection applies, even though I'm in Switzerland, because InteractiveBrokers is not. (To my knowledge they have a branch office in Switzerland, but that may very well be outdated information). Shares etc. that you own are yours even if InteractiveBrokers would go bust, regarding cash in your account I'm not sure but would assume a "low" amount is insured, e.g. 100k.
