We believe investing fees should be simple and fair. We'll charge you £22.50 each quarter for safe custody of your assets and return this amount to you as non-refundable trading credits. To buy and sell online usually costs a flat rate of £10 a trade, which we reduce to £6 for your first 3 months and if you trade frequently.

Please remember, the value of your investments may go down as well as up and you may not get back all the money that you invest. The value of international investments may be affected by currency fluctuations which might reduce their value in sterling. We may receive two elements of commission in relation to international dealing - Trading commission and our FX charge. Please see our Rates and Charges for full details of the costs.
