TD Direct Investing International (Internaxx)


TD Direct Investing International (formerly known as Internaxx) is the Luxembourg brokerage subsidiary of Canada’s TD Bank Group. As the “offshore” division, it’s very much pitched at the expat community and seems to be trying to fill the space between discount brokers and private banks/full service brokers – ie more of a personal service than the former, cheaper than the latter.

Compared to TD Direct Investing in the UK, it offers a similar range of markets with a few differences. All markets are available online through TDDII, while TD UK has Sweden and Switzerland available through telephone dealing only. Fees also vary: TDDII has mostly higher dealing commissions, but its currency conversion rates are better.

In addition to sharedealing, other services include an offshore fund supermarket featuring around 900 funds. This can be useful for expats and non-residents investing in European funds – you could also consider Keytrade Bank for a similar service.
