Dealing commission

Our standard online dealing fees are the same across all account types

Frequent trader rates apply after 20 trades have been made in any one calendar month and the reduced rate will remain in place until end of the month. This will apply per customer and not per account – so if you hold two or three account types, under the same customer number, we calculate your trading rate based on the number of trades you have made across all of those accounts.

Other Dealing fees

Custody fees

* Any online commission, ETF commission, Regular Investment commission, Dividend Reinvestment commission or Fund platform fee paid in the quarter will be used to offset against the Custody Fee.

Free Dealing account – when you hold and ISA or SIPP, you won’t be charged the £4.99 product fee on this account

Funds Platform fee

A fee based on the aggregated value of your fund holdings (Unit Trusts and OEICs) across all your accounts will be charged quarterly via a tiered structure based on the bands indicated below. The fee will be taken pro-rata from each account. 

Please note - if you close your account or transfer out to another provider, the funds platform fee will be charged pro rata based on the value of your fund holdings up to the point of transfer/closure. This will be in addition to any transfer charges which are applicable.
