Great customer service

I have received excellent customer service since initially signing up and can recommend the team at Monex highly. My relationship manager has made this a very personalised experience which is unlike any other brokerage firm in the market.



I have to say that every single interaction with this platform is just a pleasure - I really appreciated your flexibility and your focus on getting things done in the most customer friendly manner!!!! you are quite a role model for the financial services industry!! 


I have experience of 3 other platforms. One was good, one mediocre, and one terrible! This platform is far and away the easiest, simplest to understand, and the very best for efficiency and service: superb.
