Investment, ISA and SIPP Account
We aim to make our charges as clear and simple as possible. You'll see all of our charges set out below.
There's no separate fee for each account you have with us - just one quarterly fee that covers all your account (a separate annual SIPP administration fee applies).
And we don't charge you more just for holding more assets with us. Our flat fee means you'll know exactly what your account will cost you - in advance.
|Buy or sell UK funds and shares|
£10 - standard fee, per trade£1.50 per trade for regular investments with Portfolio Builder
|Buy or sell international shares||£10 per trade|
|Frequent Trader Rate|
£5 per trade
Buy or sell more than 10 times in a month, and you’ll pay just £5 for any further trades for the rest of that month.
Funds, real-time UK and international share trades all qualify. Find out more
|Buying or selling by phone||No additional charge|
Quarterly fee – payable in early Jan, Apr, Jul and Oct
This covers your first two real-time trades in the quarter (or the value of £20 of trades, including regular investments) which can be used across your Trading, ISA and SIPP account.
£0 for up to 10 lines of stock – for customers who have been with us for less than a year*
£15 per line of stock – when an account has been open for more than a year
*We believe once you start investing with our service and with our flat fee pricing you will want to stay with us. So we’re happy to waive our transfer-out charges to another broker, for up to ten lines of stock (£15 per line of stock after that), if you choose to leave us within a year of opening your account. (Please note, if you wish to convert a shareholding into a paper certificate, our normal fees for this will apply.) We’ll also waive our SIPP transfer-out fee.
|VCTs Processing Charge|
Flat rate of £30
We will make no further charges for the day-to-day custody services of your investments, including corporate actions and dividend processing, regardless of the investment types you choose.
|Funds – income rebate|
We offer thousands of 'clean' funds which do not bundle 'trail commission' payments to a platform into their Annual Management Charge. The typical AMC of a actively managed ‘clean’ fund is 0.75%.
Prior to 6 April 2016, 'trail commission' received from Fund Managers was rebated to customers. Following the Retail Distribution Review (RDR) and a review of all trail-paying Funds (often referred to as 'dirty funds') Interactive Investor no longer receives trail commission.
Following conversion of funds to their 'clean class' equivalent, where available, final rebates were paid to customers in July 2016. Where a 'dirty fund' does not have a clean class equivalent and continues to be held in an account, no trail commission will be received by us and hence no rebate will be passed on.
*Please note interest will not be paid on cash held in an Investment, Junior ISA or ISA account. Interest on cash held in a SIPP account is paid at 0.1% and will be credited to your account annually.
Additional SIPP charges - with effect from 6 April 2015
