I have a mail from them that says the charge on ITs was to help HL deliver a quality service. I was quite shocked that they ring me to tell me things had happened. I am not sure that is high QoS - it is like your bank ringing you to tell you they have approved each debit card payment. I don't expect to get any issues with cash custody or trading that isn't high QoS it is what I paid for I really don't care how HL make their money or what they charge. I just want it clear and open. What would be nice is if the regulator gave out a standard profile of account with a given set of actions that would occur in a year and then.........all the providers had to quote the real cost I am not keen on using HL again after it became clear that a core basis for a fund getting on to their recommended investment lists was the benefit to HL. I am sure that is perfectly legal but don't think it is the right way to do things. I don't recall seeing anything on the wealth list that confirmed that the profit to HL formed part of the basis for recommendation I need to be doing something with my SIPPs before long. I dont think I will be asking HL for advice as I am not sure who their recommendations are designed to benefit It will be interesting to see what gets on the new list. Fundsmith anyone? I think getting the T class in III which returns the trail is cheaper that the clean R fund.

I recently received a letter from my broker, Hargreaves Lansdown, announcing several new charges being introduced. Currently it is free to close your account. However, from June you will be charged to close your account. I am confident that once the account closure charge comes into effect in June, they will then introduce a quarterly "administration charge". I have seen this happen to about five other trading accounts which I have held over the years - and closed. I had no intention of closing my HL account. Unfortunately, I see what's coming and have therefore initiated the simple process of closing it. If you are a frequent trader, fine. But if, like me, you rarely trade these days and just wanted an account which you could fund at short notice to make a trade when you spot an opportunity, then this post is a heads up for you - it might be time to look for a new broker before you start getting ripped off.

I understand i am with TD, III and Selftrade III is the fairest and the cheapest and they also have tie in with Money Observer and others which gives them more strings to their bow and they don't have shareholders needing a divi each quarter. My III fee is £20/quarter my Regular investment costs are £27/quarter at £1.5 per buy so...I only pay £7 on top of the £20. HL charge 0.45% platform and the £27........I don't rate the HL "research" versus Digital look Citywire advfn etc and I wouldn't dream of paying for it. I pay Morningstar so I am not a complete tight wad but the HL research is targetted at amateurs III has a big big range of markets available too all traded online...others force you to d a phone trade I had a look at HL v AJ bell for SIPP costs. AJB are clear about what the charges are ...... i couldn't really follow what HL costs would be as there were lots of add-ons Selftrade is badly screwed up but they have my SIPPs from Sippdeal so I am stuck there at the moment......... I opened another SIPP it was easier

marksp2011 - Always wanted to buy Fundsmith but as you say HL have avoided simply due to the lack of a cut for them However, your main argument will over time apply to any other fund manager - that was one niggle at the back of my mind whilst I was contemplating moving - I was tempted by the three i's but then asked myself what the position is likely be in say 3 years time ? After all whats the point in moving if its a short lived gain ? They all have to make a turn - it's who is going to take the lowest margin in the long run imo, whilst maintaining an adequate level of service ?

I only had a few funds with them but now i will avoid like plague. I am trying to consolidate stuff I have in different places - trading accounts, ISAs and SIPPs but where to go? The issue i see is that as a PLC they need to keep growing revenue and profits and this is a zero sum game. If HL make more money the only source has been the investment pots of their customers either directly or indirectly There are plenty of other places to go that are better value and there are better places for "research" - Digital Look has better stocks information I have lost faith in HL fund research. I am not sure of the basis for recommendation - who is a fund good for HL or the investor? Will a higher cost fund or one that refuses to give HL a deal be recommended regardless of the performance? If Fundsmith Equity gets on their recommended list i will have another think

I for one was going to move and had started the process Zangdook - too true and irritatingly annoying The irony is that HL (and the govt et al) bang on about shareholder rights and democracy etc and yet take the tools away from which this can be achieved. Who is going to vote now, if you have to pay a tenner a pop (or whatever it is) ?

No sign they'll back down on - charging to let you vote at AGMs - charging to let you take part in a rights issue - selling your shares to pay their charges without giving you the option of paying by direct debit.

"We have always listened to clients and designed our service around what they want. It is clear that this particular aspect of our pricing change has been disliked," said Mr Gorham. Strange as I have an email from them that was pretty clear that they needed to make this charge to maintain their excellent customer service or something on those lines. so........... are we going to gert bad service or were they not telling the truth :) I wonder how many people were transferring?

Is it possible to short/spread bet downwards HL.? Quite a naive question I know, but I believe there are rules preventing financial institutions being shorted. It's a shame if it's the case here. Seem to be trading on an enormous P/E of 40, and a premium to net tangible asset value of approx 3500%. Could be argued on today's results the shares are worth about £3 each - still being a huge premium to book value, and a high P/E ratio.

Yes, the Telegraph confirms this: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/personalfinance/investing/10618798/Hargreaves-Lansdown-backs-down-over-controversial-new-charge.html I initiated my transfer last week, and they took the fee from me yesterday. I've e-mailed them asking if it can be reversed. £45 for shares is borderline acceptable, but not another £45 for ITs.

Every other organisation to which I pay regular fees takes them by direct debit from my bank account. I maintain a credit balance in my bank account for that purpose. No-one but HL asks me to give them a chunk of cash to hold so they can take their fees from it, under threat of selling my assets if I don't have enough. It's disgraceful greed and (a recurring theme with HL) arrogance.

Fidelity and Barclays have have now undercut HL by 10 bps with their wrap charging structures. HL margins are going to be squeezed moving forwards. I fully expect analysts to start downgrading HL.

How good is iii for share trades in very small companies and where one wants to buy above nms. Selftrade here is excellent, way ahead of HL and youinvest but isnt taking on new customers; I am looking to leave HL, so who else is competitievely priced and good for trades above nms. thanks

The Daily Telegraph has received many complaints from HL customers - they invited the HL management to comment/respond They didn't What organisations ever do that ? Reminds me of Rogue Traders

Why do you think they are interested in what you want? They want their money and won't have the time asking "n" thousand people who don't have cash in theoir accounts what they want. You are getting confused. Your money is there to make money for HL

I understand that charges are to be taken on the 1st of each month from one's cash account and if there is insufficient funds on this account HL will sell units in the largest fund within the portfolio to raise 3 months charges. I personally do not wish for HL to take from my largest fund and feel they should be asking me as to which fund they should sell to raise the fees, in this situation. Can someone please advise!

I use III and a couple of others but III is the best value and has some decent research too. III is £20 per quarter and you can get multiple family accounts for that charge PLUS, your first £20 of dealing fees on the account are free in any one quarter I have 5 regular dealing trades/month between me and the lady wife. £1.5*5 = £22.5/quarter and I get to pay £2.5 of that They rebate all fund commissions The charge to buy and sell everything at £10/a pop and a bargain rate if you over trade £5 for 10 trades a month I have never had any other fees from them HL service is excellent but i didn't need to rung up to be told stuff could see on the website. A nice touch but it comes out of the investors pockets really Iif you are getting out of HL, do it before the new fees take effect as they are ramping up the exit fees

I will be switching as well. How much do they charge for isa and share account transfer? Which broker is a good broker with reasonable charge.
