Reduce your FX costs

You can hold up to 9 different currencies in our Trading account and SIPP, meaning you may not have to pay to convert currency each time you trade or receive a dividend payment.

You also control when to convert your currency, which is really handy if you want to sell, locking in any profit you’ve made, when the rate of exchange isn’t favourable.

Please note, HMRC rules prevent non-sterling currency being held in an ISA.

Hold your US and international shares in the same account as your other investments.
