I lost trust in HL when they put my dealing charges UP from £9.95 to £11.95. while telling the world that they have dropped their charges to £5,95. that is an INCREASE of over 20% ( sorry HL I like many others don't trade 10 per month) and now they want a cut of my tax shelter too. as usual is a way of stealing from the poor and giving to the rich...GREEDY BUSTERDS I'm looking to switch too

still don't like the opaque relationship between HL and the fundmanagers and do not understand the selection criteria for the Wealth 150 funds Does the financial benefit or not of a fund to HL have any impact on whether a fund is on the recommended list?

I signed up for 'paper-free' long ago, but I still receive mountains of mail from them. It seems arbitrary - some things come electronically, some on paper, and some both. If they want to start charging for paper they'd better get their act together and follow clients' instructions.

True - but if you trade frequently then it's you doing all the work !

Most brokers (including HL) have paper-free alternatives for documents: just download the pdf of the contract note, or whatever. And you should have a cloud backup.

Does it though - I've always found them useful to both double check the trade and maintain a full record Otherwise you are relying on their site alone, with no collaberative evidence - and every provider/bank I've used has web problems from time to time

The sad thing is the complete lack of response from the investment trust industry, they ought to be 'up in arms'. I sold my one and only IT immediately. Having said that, my postman's bag is a lot lighter as we have killed off delivery of contract notes which only makes sense.

New max charge: Share account: £45 plus 0.45% of any OEICs or Unit Trusts ... but INVESTMENT TRUSTS as well, which I find unacceptable.

Modform - it was - but now there's an additional 0.45% (although tiered later on) for both unit and investment trusts plus a whole host of charges such as for paper statements/voting/dividend reinvestment etc

I thought the account charge for hl is £40 per annum max for isa and dealing accounts. I pay about 40 for both or have I missed something. Any advice will be appreciated.

I am looking at Charles Stanley for my SIPP & ISA's I just do not like being taken for an idiot. Timing is the problem, not knowing how long it takes between closing the HL account and opening others elsewhere. I was thinking of selling the stocks and funds and transferring cash. However a few holdings could be subject to upward movements quite soon and I would not like to be out of these during the transfer. Any idea's on how long a transfer takes?

I was pleased to see the above as they could have raised their charges by quite a bit and still have been way cheaper than HL. It is a real shame as I like the HL site but, in my own personal view, their "research" stinks - They do some interesting videos but I have been very disappointed by the depth of research on their funds. I wouldn't be paying Morningstar £170 year if I felt comfortable with HL. Mstar has a great X-ray tool so that it displays the content of your portfolios in funds/ITs/ETFs etc...it is strange but you can think you have got a fair spread and then discover you have 8% of your money in one stock

Dear Mark In response to press speculation and customer enquiries following the introduction of new charges by some other investment platforms, we are pleased to confirm Interactive Investor will not be increasing our current pricing, introduced in 2012, and we have no plans to introduce any additional fees. As our pricing is already transparent, fair and straightforward, it is fully compliant with the forthcoming regulatory changes. You can continue to invest for a straightforward, fixed fee - regardless of investment choice. You can still hold both an Investment account, as well as an ISA account, for the same £20 quarterly fee, with its £20 quarterly commission credit. Our pricing also ensures you will always know exactly how much you will pay in charges. If you have additional holdings elsewhere you may want to consider transferring them to us. This straightforward process takes just a 15 minute investment of your time, and we will look after the rest of the process for you. All the transfer forms you need can be found within the Account Admin section. You will also get £120 in trading credit (terms apply). Yours sincerely Adam Seale CEO Interactive Investor Trading Ltd Terms and conditions of transfer offer A minimum transfer amount of £3,000 is required to qualify for this offer. To qualify for this offer, we will need to receive your transfer forms by 28 February 2014. The £120 commission credit will be added to your account in four, quarterly, instalments with the first credit of £30 being applied at the start of the next quarterly credit period (our quarterly credit periods start on 4 January 2014, 5 April 2014, 5 July 2014 and 4 October 2014). This offer is capped to the value of £120 of additional commission-free trades, per customer. All quarterly credit, including the transfer-offer commission credit, must be used up in the quarter it is added to your account. Any remaining commission credit will be removed from your account at the end of the quarter. The commission credit is applied to your overall account and can be redeemed against any trading fees you incur within your investment, ISA or SIPP account held with us (trading fees are charged at £10 for real-time UK and international trades and £1.50 for regular investments). The commission credit is in addition to the £20 quarterly credit which is applied to your account together with your £20 quarterly account fee. Your account must remain open for twelve months following the transfer to receive the full £120 in commission credit. Accounts which are closed during this time, will lose any outstanding commission credit. Interactive Investor reserves the right to amend or withdraw this offer at any time.

Why do you say (except in the H-L isa)? ISTM the double charging applies there too. Am I missing something? Http://www.hl.co.uk/lowcharges#tariff

Z. Yes. Just as you say. It's H-L's attempt to justify the charges which I find objectionable, because I think they deliberately use red herrings. As a shareholder I'm in two minds about the charging structure itself. They've rightly anticipated the rise of the IT sector and decline of the UT (fund) sector, and are, reasonably enough, attempting to cash in on it. On the other hand, the very investors (IT holders) which they are clobbering are the more sophisticated ones who see the separate treatment of ITs (except in the H-L isa) for what it is. So the strategy is risky, imo.

III charge a fixed amount not a sliding percentage scale. They won't get "special" deals from the fund houses - HL are claiming they have got reduced charges from some fund houses and they will put these in the Wealth 150 list. they won't say who is on this list yet.# One of the funds I have has already told HL to Foxtrot Oscar. No deal means no Wealth 150. i don't follow this at all. If a fund is very good why shouldn't it make more money for the fund manager? A fund that returns the index for 0.5% pa or a fund that delivers +3% points better for 0.75% There must be a conflict of interest when someone recommends funds and also receives payment based on the amount investors hold. I really don't like it. I do my own research, it isn't particularly hard and there are lots of data sources free and paid. The bottom line here is that this a zero sum game. People invest and those investments make returns. The platform managers don't add to the pot, they transfer money from investors and fund managers to themselves. 2013 results "We are pleased to present our results for the year ended 30 June 2013, once again reporting record revenues of £292.4 million (+22%) and operating profits £192.5 million (+28%). The most salient features are the record growth in net new business and clients. Net new business was £5.1 billion (+59%) and we welcomed 76,000 net new clients (+69%)." I think the shares are a buy. It is expensive to leave and you will even have to pay to close your accounts in the new world. We will see what happens but it is a shame that RDR has ended up like this

and another thing I have ISA and dealing accounts so does the wife. On III I can link those......£20 for all 4, it seems HL charges fees on all 4 III cost £80 per year ( i dont pay this as my trades can be offset against it) HL cost £180/year PLUS dealing charges....PLUS 0.45% on funds.......and HL are still taking a slice out of the fund manager too My SIPP at Sippdeal/Selftreade is £216 HL is £400 + 0.45% on funds What galls me is City of London CTY.................charges 0.35%..... HL want to charge investors 0.45% per annum + purchase costs. More than the fund charges
