1 Buy or sell in your share dealing account three or more times in the previous month to qualify for our best commission rates. Please note that rates are valid up to £25,000 trade consideration. Rates above this trade size are agreed by negotiation. Please call 0207 663 0336. If execution of a trade takes place over multiple days, you will be charged commission for each day where a proportion of the trade is filled.
2 Remember that investing in local currencies carries foreign exchange risk. The value of your holdings will be affected by movements in foreign exchange rates as well as market prices. Changing your currency conversion settings influences the amount of commission you pay. Our team reviews these changes on a monthly basis, so it may take some time to update your account. Please be aware that changing from converting 'instant' to 'manual' means that you'll no longer qualify for commission-free trading.
3 You may be out of the market for a period while your transfer takes place.
