Selecting The Best Investment Account

Broker 1 and Broker 4 offer the best value. Broker 2 is more expensive but with no fund dealing fees.

Broker 3 is the most expensive and will be for the smaller investor with its fixed fees. However, if you have a large investment pot in the £000’000s it will likely work out cheaper in terms of charges.

There are often more qualitative considerations to consider too. The level of perceived customer support, the ease-of-use of the platform and level of helpful guidance should be considered.

Other charges to be aware of include: Transfers In (usually free), Transfer Holdings Out (varies from free to £25 per holding), FX Conversion Charge (varies from 1% down to 0.25%) and Dividend Reinvestment (1% with a max. limit is usual). Remember, some Brokers also negotiate discounts on the Ongoing Charges Figure for certain popular Funds.

As these shares are not within a tax-efficient wrapper such as a Stocks & Shares ISA, you will be liable for Capital Gains and Dividend Tax.
