Trade UK shares online for £2.50 a trade, including Main Market, AIM and PLUS. There is no minimum or maximum number of trades for the £2.50 rate, which also covers limit orders, stop losses, debt securities and ETFs. Loyalty rebates for customers with over £500,000 will bring the effective cost per UK online trade down to 50p per trade, for the first 2,000 trades per year.
Prices come direct from the London Stock Exchange's Proquote central trading hub, ensuring competitive spreads. No margin is added to the quotes obtained. Stockbroking and custody services are provided by James Brearley & Sons.
There is no minimum account balance, just ensure you have sufficient funds to cover the Annual Fee of 0.24% (from 1 April 2014 subject to a minimum quarterly charge of £30). This covers both the General Investment Account and ISA.
Most investment funds can be held on the Frequent Trader platform. If a fund you are interested in is not included on our fund list, let us know and we can usually add it.
We provide access to institutional and clean share classes, i.e. those without platform fees or trail commission included within their AMCs. If a retail fund class is re-registered onto the platform all payments from the fund manager to the platform for that holding (trail commissions) are rebated into your account. This can be up to 0.875%. Note for General Investment Accounts only, a 25p administration charge applies to each rebate.
There is no platform charge to buy or sell funds, but our Annual Fee of 0.24% applies, and a small minority of funds carry Supplementary Application Charges. These are clearly shown on our Fund Charges webpage.
The standard Frequent Trader platform offers an outstanding service. But we know that some investors have more complex requirements. That is why we are pleased to offer these Premium Services, which carry extra charges:
. £25 per trade telephone trading
. International share trading
. Funds with Supplementary
Complex Financial Instruments

. Synthetic ETFs
. Listed Structured Products
. Warrants & Covered Warrants
. Complex Funds*
. Shares on unregulated markets*
* These Complex Financial Instruments may also be subject to additional charges.
Joining the Frequent Trader Service is straightforward.
There is no minimum to open an account (but remember the £30 minimum quarterly charge that applies to the Annual Fee of 0.24%).
Just fill out the appropriate application forms and send them in with identification documents to cover our anti-money laundering requirements.
Our How to Apply page will guide you through this step-by-step.
