We've never used Fidelity. We've used Banco Banex, Bank of Bermuda, Schwab International, and Interactive Brokers.
Schwab International is easier to use vs IB. But limits one to USA-domicled exchanges and a VERY limited amount of TERRIBLE Ireland domicled ACTIVELY managed MFs.
Finding IB 6 years ago was MAGIC. It gave us access to PASSIVE Ireland domicled ETFs on the LSE from Vanguard and Ishares. Our interest income and dividend holding taxes went from >30% to around 10%.
