Why Alliance Trust Savings

Flat fee investing

What we offer

Account fees that don't grow with your investment.

We charge you flat Account fees rather than fees based on a percentage of the value of your investment. So, as your investments grow, your Account fees won't.

Experience and scale.

We've been in business since 1986, have £16.2 billion of assets under administration (at June 2018) and look after the investments of more than 110,000 customers.

Award winning products.

Winning the Shares Award for Best Customer Service has been a great achievement for us as a company, and is all the more special since it was voted for by our customers. Visit our trophy cabinet.


You can access more than 4,000 different investments.

And convenience for you.

You can manage everything together in one place, with 24/7 access to your Account online.

Important information

Please remember the value of your investments can go down as well as up. You may get back less than you originally invested.

Alliance Trust Savings does not give advice. You need to ensure you understand the risks and commitments before investing. If you are unsure you should consult a Financial Adviser before investing. This is provided for general information only and takes no account of personal circumstances. It is not a recommendation to buy or sell. It is provided solely to support you in making your own investment decisions.

Account fees that don’t grow with your investment

As your wealth grows, the charges you pay to us won’t

  • We charge flat fees.
  • We DON’T charge a percentage of the value of your investments.
  • So the amounts you pay depend on the accounts you hold, the services you use and how often you use them. Not on your wealth. That seems fair to us.

A balanced view of flat fees

Can be expensive when:

  • You plan to invest a small amount and not add to it over time.
  • You plan to buy and sell investments very frequently.

Can be great value when:

  • You plan to make a larger investment.
  • You plan to build a smaller investment into a larger one over time.

The flat fees difference

We charge everyone the same flat fees, no matter how much they have invested.
