    Hi all,
    I’m currently with ComSec and am hearing that Selfwealth may be more suitable due to the lower fees. It is CHESS sponsored so all trades will go through and join my existing shares at the respective registries. I don’t purchase that often and don’t need the bells & whistles, just prefer to pay $9.50 rather than $19.90.
    Does anyone use two platforms? Anyone use both SelfWealth & ComSec and can confirm that my understanding of the workings is correct?
    Ultimately look to move across to SelfWealth but until I use that platform, I’d like to have both running.
    Any obvious issues with this?
    Thank you

    I've used both, but haven't used Comsec in a while.
    Just sign up to SW and have a play around. I believe you can import your HIN number, and it might pull up your holdings.
    Market analysis and news reporting is lacking with SW, unless you get the premium account.
