I thought this would be the appropriate part of the ASF to post this question.
I was just wondering who here owns shares outside of Australia? To those who do, I was wondering
1) Do you use an Australian broker (e.g. CommSec) to purchase the shares, or do you use a broker in the country that you have shares?
2) Are the many fees?
3) What are the taxation rules regarding the Capital Gains/Losses of international shares?
4) Is it worth purchasing international shares? I mean, have you made bigger gains relative to the share transactions you've done in Australia?
