1000's of 5-star reviews
As a former commsec user, I love how easy the app is to navigate and with ASX now available switching between markets is easy.
I've never written an App review before, but Stake really has continued to wow me.
I started using Stake for US trading, and recently (very easily) transferred my ASX portfolio across to utilise the cheap trades.
Switched from nabtrade. Much better experience. Far cheaper.
A well designed and easy to use app to trade on the USA and AUS markets.

Australian ETFs FAQs
Exchange traded funds (ETFs) are one of the most popular financial assets traded by investors globally. They are versatile and generally considered low-risk investments. Some other benefits of ETFs include:
- ETFs allow investors to buy a basket of shares in a single trade - a great way to diversify your portfolio.
- ETFs are a low-cost asset to trade with a low management expense ratio (MER).
- ETFs are easy to trade, and can be bought and sold during the regular ASX trading hours (or U.S. stock exchanges for U.S. ETFs).
ETFs are managed funds that exchanges, like the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), provide to investors to buy and sell. They are passive investments that might follow an index like the ASX200, a theme or a commodity such as gold. ETFs don’t attempt to outperform the market but follow the value of the assets they track.
There are risks associated with any investment, and ETFs have some specific risks you need to be aware of. Some of the main risks that you can face trading ETFs include:
- Lack of liquidity in volatile markets.
- Any changes that a government or regulator could introduce which impacts the value of securities in which the ETF is invested in.
- Some ETFs may use OTC derivatives that have higher exposure to counterparty risk.
- ETFs taxation treatment can vary differently to shares, so it's important to take advice from a taxation adviser for your own financial circumstance.
Australian ETFs pay dividends just like a dividend-paying stock would. However, ASX ETFs typically pay out dividends on a quarterly basis, with the payouts from all relevant stocks pooled together. Like individual stocks, the dividends will be paid out through issuance of more stocks or cash distribution.
ETFs can make a great long-term investment and have historically shown a higher rate of success when held over a longer term compared to holding individual stocks. When you invest in ETFs over a long period of time, this allows you to compound any earnings received from dividends and cut down on costs like brokerage fees.
