As regards commission, all online stock brokers in the Philippines offer the same commission charge — 0.25%. (To know how the commission is computed in your trades, read Fees and Charges when Buying or Selling Stocks)

Regarding how much money is needed to open an account with brokers, the minimum varies per broker. In BPI Securities (BPI Trade), there is no minimum required but, of course, you need to fund your trading account first before you can make a trade. BPI Trade is linked with BPI and BPI Family so it is easy to transfer and withdraw funds from/to your brokerage account.

Angping Securities, Citisec Online (COL) and Accord Capital all offer a basic account for only P5,000.

Angping Securities requires a minimum of P5,000 for students while professionals can trade for a minimum of P15,000. COL’s starter account is P5,000 but the minimum needed to open a COL Plus account is P25,000.

Other brokerage firms’ minimum ranges from P10,000 to P50,000.

Most brokers have partnership with the largest banks in the country so funding and withdrawal is easy, although it usually takes up to 3 days before any withdrawal from your trading account is transferred to your bank’s savings account.

We hope the matrix above helped you decide the best stock broker for you.

    1. CITISEC ONLINE (COL FINANCIAL) or ACCORD CAPITAL are the best online brokers in the Philippines register to them. User Friendly and Fast platform apply for Accord; Platform with lots of features go for COL. Its just buying and selling I don’t care for the platform really.

    You can go for col financial or bdo nomura but dont go for, this brojer will definitely make you broke.

    Your capital investements keep changing, your trade buy ave will change that trick u that you gain and sold it for profit so you better watch put, and also it deducts money from your balance fund even if u dont have any transaction done.

  10. nada! these brokers in the Philippines are taking your hard earned money! 0.25% commissions from the cost of transaction? my God! even a nincompoop won’t buy your racket! There’s no future in the Philippine stock market with these greedy stock brokers. .25% commisions?! fuck you. Really somebody change the system!

    1. Uhmm.. Can I ask you what’s the average cost of transaction in trading and/or investing in Phil Stocks?
      0.25% seems too small for a fee, well at least for me. That’s 0.25%, that only x0.0025 of cost, that only talks in pesos of your thousands and thousands in your millions. Also, the fact that financial advisors still prefers putting your retirement savings on investing stocks than savings account means that stock market is still far more profitable than just putting it in the bank.
