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.
