Start small with CommSec Pocket

Using CommSec Pocket, you can start investing with as little as $50 and build a portfolio over time.

Choose from 7 themed options and invest in something that appeals to you like tech, sustainability leaders or the biggest 200 companies on the Aussie market.

You’ll gain hands-on experience as an investor and CommSec will help you along the way with bite-sized tips, videos and articles to teach you all about the share market.

How it works

  • When you invest via CommSec Pocket, you’ll be buying units in an Exchange Traded Fund (ETF). ETFs are funds that trade on a stock exchange, just like shares – the difference is that an ETF represents an investment in a selection of companies and assets, while a share represents an investment in just one company. One ETF can give you exposure to a whole diverse portfolio.

    Every ETF in CommSec Pocket has a theme. See below for all the options you can choose from, covering different industries, markets or countries.
