Radical Guide to Online Bond Investing: HarrisDirect
- Like Fidelity, HarrisDirect offers flat pricing and is a participant in the BondDesk marketplace. While HarrisDirect comes up short in a cost comparison to Fidelity, these two brokers are the only two major online bond brokers with disclosed pricing ---- that alone is commendable.
- As a BondDesk participant, HarrisDirect has a wide range of product and investor analytics, all of which are good and helpful to the self-directed customer.
- We reached their trading desk in one phone call. Some brokers will route you to a fixed income specialist or customer service desk, bypassing the traders completely. We see it as a big plus when brokers open up their trading desk to customer phone queries.
- One negative: Who is HarrisDirect? We recall when it was CSFB Direct, but we cannot say more about it. Its presence in the retail bond market seems muted.
