Can I deal with currencies other than sterling on my HL Account?
You can only hold sterling cash balances in your HL Account. Overseas share deals are traded at our standard rates and can be placed online, by phone or post. They will be dealt at the overseas market price and converted into sterling by a UK based market maker. The foreign exchange rate used will be based on the prevailing interbank exchange rate to which the market maker will add an additional spread of up to 1.5%, dependent on the size of the deal.
