I am trying to invest $10,000. But the actual amount invested is slightly less. Why?

Trading international shares is a complicated endeavour. There are several moving parts for a transaction, including:

  • The foreign exchange rate for the applicable currency you need to trade in
  • Whether the exchange your shares are listed on are open, and the shares are trading
  • The market price of the shares
  • The relevant fees, charges and government taxes that we need to pay to execute your transaction

To keep your experience as simple as possible, Macrovue builds in a buffer into the amount you’d like to invest in order to account for movements across each of the factors outlined above. This buffer is designed to maximise the amount available for you to invest.
