Stockbroking accounts, options accounts, SMSF accounts and more.


The two main types of accounts we offer are stockbroking and options, but there are more. If you have a self managed super fund, you can open a self managed super fund (SMSF) account with us, you can take your pick from a range of managed funds and, if you have an existing margin loan with any Australian lender, you can open a margin lending linked account with us. To take advantage of our low online brokerage of $11 or 0.10%, whichever is the greater, simply make sure your stockbroking account with us is CHESS sponsored and that you open a CMC Markets Cash Account held with Bankwest – it’s the perfect partner for your stockbroking or options account.
