I've done a bit of research and it seems that Ireland doesn't have a huge amount of firms that handle investment portfolios.
I found: Zurich, Davy, Irish life, Aviva, and anything that offers insurance basically. The Zurich Prisma 4 Fund seems to be performing well.
Firms like Cantor Fitzgerald & Davy seem to cater towards big investors 250K+ and have a lot of fees.
The alternatives are my own bank (AIB) with fees of 1.8% for a portfolio and some smaller firms like MoneyCube 1.5%.
The cheapest alternatives are online-only brokerages like eToro and DeGiro. They have very low fees and it's completely do-it-yourself.
I have about 1-5K to invest as well as 100/month going forward. I value flexibility as well - I may want to take a break from it or pull out after 5 years.
Are eToro and DeGiro legit? If they go under can I get my money back?
Would you bother with the bank or traditional firms in my situation?
