The value of investments can fall as well as rise and any income from them is not guaranteed and you may get back less than you invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance. Selftrade does not provide investment advice. If you are in any doubt as to the risk or suitability of an investment or product you should seek advice from an independent financial adviser.
Selftrade is committed to a transparent charging policy and here you can find all the information you need about our charges clearly laid out. Most of our customers choose to trade online and our standard dealing rate of £12.50 per trade normally applies. For more frequent traders, regular investors and people who prefer an alternative to online trading, we offer different pricing options to better suit your needs.
Standard Online Dealing Fees
Our dealing fees are the same across all account types.
Frequent trader rate
Online rate per trade
Frequent trader rates apply after 100 trades made in any one calendar quarter and apply per customer and not per account – so if you hold 2 or 3 account types with us, we calculate your trading rate based on the number of trades you have made across all of those accounts.
Telephone Dealing Fees
For telephone dealing our fees vary by the value of the trade you want to make.
Value of trade
£2,500 – £100,000
For trades over £100,000
Telephone rate per trade

There are some instances where our standard dealing fees do not apply, where we offer reduced dealing fees for using some services. The savings we are able to make by trading on behalf of multiple customers are passed on in these lower dealing fees.
