We currently keep our investment portfolio in our bank. Because we didn't hear of other options (or did, but were too busy to bother), because it's convenient, because it's *default*.

Geesh, how much money the banks make from their defaultness - mortgage insurances, currency exchange, investment portfolios. In the latter case, especially. Costly cuarterly commisions (even when no actions are done in the portfolio), commisions for unsuccessful orders, etc.

We commenced sniffing around for alternatives - and it's a beautiful world out there. It seems very unlikely that we'll stay in our bank - the private brokerage houses offer far better rates and conditions.
