BoE Stockbrokers’ key strength lies in its personalised service offering, which ties in nicely with the BoE Private Bank offering. It also offers a solid research service in real time for a fee, or delayed for free. Perhaps indicating its upper-end target market, the broker does not do much by way of client education. Clients can trade shares, warrants and CFDs online and have the option to trade other JSE and Safex derivatives such as currency futures and offshore shares on the phone. There is no minimum amount required to open a non-discretionary trading account. The charges are competitive for large transactions (over R100 000) and account fees are waived if at least one trade is executed a month. We found their website was a breeze to use with a site specially designed for mobile devices.
