Invest in US shares

Take your pick from thousands of companies and funds listed on the Nasdaq, New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), and Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE).

US companies and funds

This is only a fraction of the companies and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) you can invest in.

Why invest in US shares?

  • Huge market

    The exchanges in the US have the biggest market capitalisation (total value of shares that can be traded) in the world.

  • Diversification

    A diversified portfolio might include investments in a range of different companies, sectors, and countries. US exchanges give you a huge variety to choose from.

  • Global access

    Many multinational companies take advantage of the scale of US stock exchanges.

Buy shares on three US exchanges
