      Hi Michael,

      Thanks for getting in touch with finder. I hope all is well with you. :)

      Whilst we are unable to give a recommendation on a specific option, let me help you make the right decision. By assessing your current and future needs, preference, and budget, you will be able to know which broker is the right one for you.

      Another thing you can do is compare your options through the table found on this page. The table is found under the subheading “Compare these platforms and trade BP shares.” By doing so, you will be able to see the pros and cons of each broker. Once you find the right one for you, then click the “Go to site” green button to learn more.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Joshua
