US citizen open share account

    My oldest brother was born in USA and moved back to Ireland with my parents when he was 2. Now he is trying to open a share account but none of the Irish stockbrokers he contacted will open accounts for US born people. Apparently there is a lot of regulation and tax compliance. He is aware of his obligation to file personal US tax returns
    Has anyone encountered this problem and were you able to open account. If so with whom.

    Have you/has he tried Interactive Brokers, I can't see why there would be an issue opening an account with them.
