Foreign Exchange Information

Foreign currency conversions are required to facilitate the settlement of international transactions and include a spread, which can vary from time-to-time, applied to the Available Exchange Rate*. The current spread is 1.0%. 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.

* The available 'Available Exchange Rate' is based on the exchange rate provided within the Global Treasury Information Services foreign exchange feed supplied by Interactive Data Corporation.

Duties and levies

  • Whenever a transaction is made on the London stock market or any other London-based exchange and is greater than £10,000, the details of the transaction get passed on to the Panel on Takeovers and Mergers for evaluation, and a levy is charged of (currently) £1.00 on the transaction, which goes to the Panel as payment (known as the 'PTM levy'). Find out more.
  • When you buy UK investments, you also have to pay a form of tax called Stamp Duty or Stamp Duty Reserve Tax. This is 0.5% of the value of the investments you buy (1% on Irish stocks and 0% on Exchange Traded Funds).
