Best broker 2021 as Swiss investor

Last update: June 2021

So you're now convinced that investing is your next step towards financial independence in Switzerland?

Then, logically, your next question will be:

"What's the best online broker in 2021 for a Swiss investor?"

To cut a long story short, my recommendation for a Swiss investor broker remains the same since 2019:

  1. Interactive Brokers, if you plan to invest more than CHF 100'000 on the stock market in the next 1-2 years
  2. DEGIRO, if you think you'll have less than CHF 100'000 invested over the next 3-5 years. Indeed, below CHF 100'000 of assets, Interactive Brokers charges a fee of 10USD/month
  3. Cornèrtrader, if you absolutely want a Swiss online broker. But make sure you buy securities at least once a quarter or you will be charged a CHF 35/quarter inactivity fee

You can read the details that led me to this online broker ranking in this original 2016 article, and its updated version of 2018.

Start to invest in the stock market is a challenge. I went through it in 2013 when I started my FIRE adventure in Switzerland.

That's why I created two complete tutorials (opening an account, buying stocks, etc.) for my favorite online brokers:
