Important note about charges

The investments you choose may have their own charges, such as charges from a particular fund manager. These are in addition to our account charges. You can find these in each investment’s key investor information document. A bid/offer spread may also apply - see our Guide to Fund Prices (PDF) for details.

Here's an HL account charge example

If you hold £10,000 in funds and £3,000 in shares, your account charge would be £58.50 per year. That's an average of £4.88* per month.

Automatic reinvestment

If you’d like any share income reinvested automatically, we’ll place the instruction once your income reaches £10 per holding, or an amount you choose. You won't pay dealing charges but for overseas shares, our normal foreign exchange charges apply.

How to pay charges

There’s no need to remember to make any payments. Each month we’ll automatically take charges from cash in your account.

If there’s not enough cash in your account, we’ll sell some of your investments to cover charges. There is no additional charge for this.

How much cash you need to keep available in your account depends on your investments. We’ll suggest a minimum cash amount for you, which you’ll be able to see in your account when you log in.

Other charges

Other charges may apply in specific circumstances - see the terms and conditions (PDF) for details.
