Question

What is a MarketMaster®?

Answer

Before you can trade shares on the stock exchange, you need to have a stockbroking account.  A MarketMaster® is a nominee dealing account, this means that your holdings are held electronically in our nominee name - you remain the beneficial owner.  This account allows you to deal online or on the telephone, with online offering the best commission rates.

You can open an individual account in your name online today and get instant access to your new account.
