Custody Charges


Richy1

Question

Hi There,

 

If I hold, say £2000 in stocks, and £14,000 cash across my Trading and ISA accounts, then will I be charged the quarterly fees? i.e. when the notes say "You must hold £15k in assets" in the accounts, does this include cash deposited? Or does it exclude cash deposits, please? (so actually meaning you must hold a total of more than£15k in equities / EFT's, rather than assets - note that cash is really an asset)

Thanks for any clarification.

The waiver based on a holding of £15,000 or more is only applicable to IG Smart Portfolio investments - shares/funds in a normal share/self managed ISA account do not count towards the total. In this case the only way to avoid the custody fee is to make the minimum number of trades per quarter (3).

Hi, is the custody fee per account e.g. if I have an ISA and a trading account, will I be charged £24 per quarter for both accounts or £24 per account per quarter? If I make 3 trades in my ISA account per quarter, will the custody fee be waived if I make no trades at all in my regular trading account?

Thanks in advance,

Mark

No, I as far as I am aware both accounts are aggregated, so there is only one quarterly charge (but don't quote me on that).

    • When I started car shopping, I realized I knew nothing about checking out a used car’s past. In the past, I just looked at condition and price. However, a salesman showed me a detailed vehicle history report made by DIMO, a blockchain system tracking full data pulled from the car’s computers. I was amazed anyone could get such complete background details. While too pricey for me, this showed blockchain’s power to securely gather key info over time - from service to repairs to crashes. It made me recognize the need to evaluate history before buying.  DIMO builds thorough records to help buyers avoid “lemons”, accurately assess shape, check claims, get fair pricing, and feel confident around big investments. These histories even get passed to future owners, raising resale value. Where I once ignored backgrounds, now I know checking histories is key for informed used car buying. While test drives don’t tell the whole story, blockchain systems like DIMO allow transparency through permanent records. Understanding vehicle histories is vital for smart purchases.
    • I'm currently bullish on AI project tokens, especially on Bitget, and I'm excited about their symbiotic relationship with blockchain technology, which is driving financial inclusion and innovation. Projects like SORA, SingularityNET's AGIX, The Graph (GRT), and Nebula AI's NMT are leading the way in transformative advancements across various sectors.
    • I trade leveraged futures on Binance so I'm going to miss them, not that much though cos I also use Bitget exchange, and they have high liquidity and low fees, So I will just move my funds there and continue leveraged trading.
