Frequent Trader

We wanted to give you a Frequent Trader Rate you can use exactly when you need it. There’s no requirement to prequalify in a previous month – instead you can access it in any month where you make 10 or more transactions. So if you’re updating your portfolio, or investing for your ISA, for example, you can consolidate your trades and take advantage of our low £5 rate.

The more you trade the more you'll be able to benefit from the £5 rate.

How it Works

Our highly-competitive frequent trader rate works very simply. Make 10 trades or investment transactions with us within a month, and any subsequent transactions in that month will be charged at £5.

Our rate applies for whatever you buy and whichever way you want to buy - so all of the following qualify:

  • UK and international shares
  • Funds, investment trusts and ETFs
  • Trading or investing online, by phone or mobile
  • Trading or investing within your Investment, ISA or SIPP account

If you have accounts with other brokers you could benefit even further by consolidating your holdings into your Interactive Investor account.

Please note our regular investment trades at £1.50 and zero-commission trades do not count towards your qualifying 10 trades.

Qualify in the Month you Want to Trade

Most Frequent Trader Rates require you to pre-qualify in the previous month. However trading patterns aren't always consistent and you may build up eligibility for a rate but not then be able to use it. With our rate you can be eligible in any month as soon as you've made at least 10 trades. We hope it makes it a straightforward way to quickly get the benefit of trading more actively.
