Key facts

  • We offer an award-winning investment service designed to help you take control of your financial future and are the largest flat fee investing service in the UK.
  • We are majority owned by J.C. Flowers & Co., a leading private investment firm with more than $16 billion of capital invested in financial businesses around the world.
  • We are 100% equity funded with no external debt.

In safe and trusted hands

  • We are rated as 4.6 “Excellent” on TrustPilot.
  • We are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) so your money and investments continue to be covered by FCA rules and protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.
  • We have an established track record of integrating complementary businesses on time with minimal customer impact and investing significantly in the resulting enlarged enterprise.

Costs and charges

You will pay a flat monthly service plan fee and will have a choice of three service plans so you can choose the best value for you. 

You would start on the most popular of these, the Investor plan, but can change it from the first time you log in to the ii platform if you wish. The monthly fee for Investor plan is £9.99.

However, as you get to know your new service, you will pay no monthly service plan fee to ii for the first six months after your move. Terms apply.

Better value

There’s much more to help you take control of your financial future with ii. 

  • Your service plan price can cover you for your own ISA, Trading Account and as many Junior ISAs as you have children. 
  • Once you start paying your monthly service plan fee (six months after your move) you get at least one free trade a month. 
  • You pay a competitive flat fee for UK trading at all trade sizes and there is no trading commission for regular investing.
  • You can add a SIPP to any service plan for an extra £10 a month.
  • And paying a flat service plan fee means that your fees don’t grow with your investments, so you can keep more of what you make.
