There's a chance I'm looking for a non-existing beast, but what the hell.
I would like to know if there's a broker which holds all the funds here, under Australian jurisdiction, but is able to provide ability to trade on international exchanges (NYSE, etc.) .
The reason I'm asking is that there might be a possibilty of all hell breaking loose in US financial space and the funds might be "frozen" and not available for transferring back to you.
I realise that the chance of this happening is currently not that big, however still would like to protect myself from it.
Any opinions or feedback is highly appreciated.
