Global investments on the i.nvest platform
Last year we added international stocks to the list of
investments available on the i.nvest platform so now you
have access to 21 exchanges across 18 countries. These
are available in your SIPP, ISA or Investment Dealing

companies available you can quickly see that this gives you
access to some significant investment opportunities.
Other global successes outside the
top ten include; Berkshire Hathaway,
Volkswagen, BMW and Apple – all of
which can be bought on the i.nvest
