Mozo Experts Choice Awards

What are the Mozo Experts Choice Awards?

Proudly in their sixth year, the Mozo Experts Choice Awards provide a platform to highlight products in the marketplace we believe offer great value to Australians.

Now well established in the banking and general insurance space, in 2019 the Mozo Experts turned their attention to finding the best value platforms for online share trading. Only the top 10% of winners in each category received the Mozo experts’ seal of approval.

“If you’re trading in shares, you want a platform that’s low on brokerage costs and packed full of useful features. But with so many out there, finding the right online share trading platform can be stressful.”

“The winners of the Mozo Experts’ Choice Awards for Online Share Trading are a great starting guide to finding the ideal platform that meets your needs.” said Mozo money expert, Peter Marshall.

For details on how we crunched the numbers and determined the award winners see our methodology report or get more info about our judging criteria and read our FAQs.


Casual Trader

If you trade infrequently, you’ll want to make sure your potential earnings aren’t getting eaten up by hefty brokerage fees. Our experts found the best value options for traders who don’t make many trades per month, or deal mostly in smaller amounts.

Regular Trader Award Winners

This category awards the best options for those who trade regularly, but not so much that they’d consider themselves professionals. Our panel of experts considered both the brokerage costs and the functionality available; such as live price data, market depth data, independent broker reports and SMS alerts.

Active Trader Award Winner

If you’re the type that lives and breathes shares, you’ll want a feature-rich platform that lets you stay on top of the market and take advantage of opportunities as they arise. So, when picking the winner in the Active Trader category, our experts put more stock in the range of features on offer than brokerage fees alone. Along with the functionality considered in the Active Trader category, platforms had to offer webIRESS, the ability to trade options, warrants, ETFs, and access to international markets.
