Interesting Moves at Crowdstrike
$CRWD hiring the Chief Product and Marketing Officers from their closest public competitor (in terms of product offering, rather than scale) is a boss move, even if it's just used as corporate propaganda:

That's 3 execs leaving $S over the past 2 months:

Also some notable insider buys since late December:
CRWD - Crowdstrike Holdings, Inc. - SEC Form 4 Insider Trading Screener - OpenInsider
Insider trades for Crowdstrike Holdings, Inc. (CRWD). Monitor SEC Form 4 Insider Trading Filings for Insider Buying and Selling. Real-time Insider Trading Stock Screener. Long and Short Trading Ideas using Insider Transaction Data.

Interesting move from Sentinel to Crowdstrike.

Daneil Bernard the now new Chief Business Officer spent 5 year and 7 months at Sentinel.

Raj Rajamani also spent 5 years at Sentinel and held the exact same title as he has now at Crowdstrike. Raj has extensive experience in the industry having held previous position at Cylance and McAfee and for similar roles as he's currently doing.

The U.K. ISA Market
Inspired by Conor's recent post and as someone who's used their fair share of different investing platforms, I wanted to summarise some of the S&S ISA options currently available to U.K. investors, particularly as the comparison sites out there are either nowhere near comprehensive enough or just plain out of date.

Given the impact of fees on investment returns over time, it's not an area that is wise to overlook for long-term investors.

The table below shows ISA options for investors that are interested in buying shares in specific businesses rather than 'robo-advisors'. If the brokerage offers tiered products, I'm using the bottom-tiered (basic) pricing structure. Any percentages shown in the share fee columns are a % of the total trade price.

While Trading 212 might seem the best offer out there currently, it should be taken into account that their business model is at least somewhat reliant on the success of their CFD product. Their FX charge also increased in the recent past. If I were choosing an ISA based on ease of use, Freetrade would win out - to me, they seem to have managed to foster brand trust since launching in a way that T212 hasn't.

In terms of the more established players, Interactive Brokers are currently the stand-out provider (and my personal choice), with the lowest fees on the market. As their ISA product was only launched this year, it remains to be seen how the other brokerages will react.

Hopefully the level of competition will result in lower fees and more transparency over time!

  1. Saxo charges a custody fee of 0.12% p.a. on open stock positions (£9 per month minimum). If you hold cash-only there's a platform fee of £50 per quarter.
  2. Minimum monthly fee of £3 a month, however any commission charged during the month is deducted from the fee.
  3. Interactive Investors have a 'regular investing' service whereby you choose an position to top-up monthly with a minimum of £25, however the choice of investment appears to be limited to UK shares/investment trusts/ETFs.
  4. A custody fee is charged if fewer than 3 trades are placed each quarter. With trading commissions, if you trade 3 or more times in the previous month, the lower price is applied per trade next month.
  5. Lower price applied when 10 or more share deals in previous month. FX charge decreases after first £10,000/next £10,000/value over £20,000.
