What shares can I invest in?

Self Invest gives you access to real-time trading of shares listed on the S&P/ASX 300 – the country’s top 300 companies (by market capitalisation) listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX). This represents a wide range of large, mid and small cap companies in which to invest.

The S&P/ASX isn’t set in stone – over time new companies are added, and some removed, as company values change. View the current S&P/ASX 300 index.

There are some limits you’ll need to keep in mind when buying shares (and ETFs) through Self Invest, which are explained below.
