Killik & Co


Like most advisory stock brokers, Killik & Co certainly isn’t a cheap option – you’ll pay up to 2% commission when buying international shares. But it offers a number of overseas markets that aren’t available through cheaper execution-only brokers in the UK.

The firm has a good reputation for high quality services and offers tax and financial planning services that may be useful to investors with larger accounts. Worth considering if you’re willing to pay for the advice and flexibility.

There is no minimum account size, but trades are unlikely to be cost-effective below the £5,000-10,000 range. Similar firms include Charles Stanley and Redmayne Bentley.
