Long time follower of geoexpat and firstly just want to say big thanks for all the regular contributors. Learnt a lot from this forum.
I am an Aussie citizen who has been living here for the last couple of years. My knowledge of investing stems from reading blogs and forums and I’m a massive fan of the FIRE movement. I know this current period is a very volatile and crazy time to start investing. Not looking to beat the market by picking individual stocks or anything like that.
I have had some experience investing in Australia mainly in vanguards ETFs. However as a non resident of Australia for tax purposes things start to get a bit complicated.
Firstly if there is any Aussies here who invest on the ASX what brokerage do you use? I know a lot of platforms back home don’t allow non residents. I currently have a SelfWealth account but they do not allow non residents and have asked me to close my account.
And secondly is there any benefits of investing outside of Australia? Tax, capital gains etc.
thanks in advance
