When trading international equities foreign currency conversions are required to facilitate the settlement of the transaction. We apply a charge of 1.5% either side of the available exchange rate when buying and selling international securities. The available exchange rate is based on the exchange rate provided by Digital Look. Indicative exchange rates are provided prior to trading, and the rate applicable to the individual trade is confirmed on the contract note once the deal has been completed.
