  • Interest rates paid on the cash held in your Dealing account

    Above £50,000 0.15% 0.15%
    Above £10,000 - £50,000 0.10% 0.10%
    £10,000 and below 0.00% 0.00%

    Notes:

    • The interest rate for each tier only applies to money held in that tier and not to the account balance as a whole. Total interest paid will be a blended rate depending on the money held in each tier. Therefore the interest rates shown should not be used for comparative purposes with other accounts, unless they operate on a similar basis.
    • The Annual Equivalent Rate (AER) represents the annual rate effectively received by your account if the interest at gross rate applied during a year remained in the account and itself earned interest.
    • There are no routine bank transaction charges and interest is paid to your account without any deduction of tax.
    • Interest rates are subject to variation and interest is paid to your account quarterly, in arrears. Interest will not be credited or paid if the amount of such interest, at the end of each quarter, is less than £2.50.
    • AJ Bell receives payments from banks based on the aggregate cash balances held across all accounts. The amount we receive will vary depending on the total cash balances held and market interest rates. Over the foreseeable future, we expect to receive between 0.25% below and 0.05% above the prevailing base rate for cash held within a Dealing account, although it may be higher or lower when interest rates are volatile. These payments are used to pay interest at the rates shown on our website, and we retain the amount received above these rates to keep our administration, custody and dealing charges low.
  • Transfer out and other charges
      Charge
    Cash transfer to another manager or stockbroker No charge
    Transfer out the underlying assets £25 per holding
    Cash withdrawal by BACS No charge
    Payment by CHAPS £25 plus VAT
    Disinvestment, if we need to sell some of your holdings to cover charges £29.95 per holding
    Foreign exchange charge payable when we have to convert any dividends or corporate action payments into sterling 0.50%

All charges will be deducted from your Dealing account. These charges and rates are effective from 8 April 2019. You must always ensure that there is sufficient cash held to cover our charges when they are due for payment. VAT is only applicable where indicated.
