Pros

Low-cost mutual funds allow me to have country exposure at a lower expense ratio.

Cons

Cannot trade during the day - trades are based on closing prices at end of the day - issue with all mutual funds.

Pros

Based on fund performance and personal service received over the years, when I retired I chose to roll over my investments to a Vanguard-managed IRA, and they made it easy to do so.

Cons

Their website and mobile app could both be improved for greater user utility.

They have a wide variety of funds. They are easy to deal with. They have good and accessible customer service.

There are no retail locations so everything has to be done remotely.

Pros

It is very easy to use as a service, especially for those that aren’t as familiar.

I wish there was a bit of a training course you could read through to get more information as you sign up.

Pros

I love that their customer service team is accessible, and you can speak to a real person when problems or glitches arise. It makes me feel like a valued customer.

Cons

The setup process was a little challenging as they could not connect to my bank to receive the transfer of investable funds.

Pros

Easy to set up. Lots of ISA options. Many different funds and strategies pre-set for you to choose and invest in.

Cons

Can look intimidating, would like a simple break down of the strategy of each fund.

Alex M πŸ‘

Pros

The fees are lower than most other online brokerages and there are many funds to choose from.

Cons

The UI could be a little more intuitive and the performance stats could use some work.

Danny H πŸ‘

Pros

They have low fees, very transparent minimums, an amazing variety of funds that have no trading fees, and the company's incentives appear aligned with their customers.

Cons

They are not very tech forward. Mobile apps are a bit clunky and their website isn’t great either.
