  • How to apply

Our charging structure is clear and transparent with flat rate charges, so you and your clients can see exactly how much they are paying.

We regularly review our charges and may alter them to reflect changes in our costs.

We do not have a set-up fee and we offer a flat fee approach to charges, meaning as your client's investment grows, their account charges won't. For further details of all our charges, please see our Charges Guide.
