Please help an aspiring South African Mustachian!
« on: February 16, 2018, 12:24:51 AM »
Greetings most esteemed Mustachians.

I have been researching (perhaps poorly) for the past 6 months on how to invest in the Vanguard S&P 500 as a South African. Only one broker I have found allows me to invest in the S&P but their fees are almost as brutal as an actively managed fund.

I currently live in the UAE, if that helps at all, so could invest from here if anyone knows how. I've asked my bank but they don't provide the S&P option.

Does anyone have any solid means of investing in Vanguard stocks from abroad (specifically SA or UAE)?

Your help is humbly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum Fantasticmrfox!

Your question seems fairly specialized.  You might want to also post it in the "Investor Alley" thread to see if anyone there knows the answer.  Maybe put something like "Can I buy Vanguard from the UAE or South Africa?" right in the title of your post.  Good luck!
