Investment Account

Access a wide range of investment opportunities beyond your tax-efficient allowances.

Important information - please keep in mind that the value of investments can fall as well as rise, so you may get back less than you invest. This information is not a personal recommendation for any particular investment. If you are unsure about the suitability of an investment you should speak to an authorised financial adviser.

We’re changing how we collect our service fee. After September, you will be able to pay service fees from a separate Cash Management Account.

Our service fee

We believe in giving you great value, so we charge an annual service fee, payable monthly, based on the value of all your investments. And did we mention all the award-winning guidance, on-the-go access and support with investing you get? That’s all included in our service fee.

We add all your accounts together before we work out which fee band you’re in, meaning we’ll charge you the lowest rate.

  • The portion of the fee you pay on exchange-traded investments (shares, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), etc.) is capped at £45.
  • However, you do not pay a service fee on exchange-traded investments held in an Investment Account.

The table below shows how this fee changes as your investments increase.

To see this in more detail please read the Doing Business with Fidelity document.

In addition to our service fee, there may also be charges set by the company managing your funds, and there will be additional charges for any share dealing you engage in. For more details, please read the Fidelity pricing guide or visit our main fees and charges page.

Total value of investments Service fee (annual amount or rate)
Less than £7,500 0.35% if you have a regular savings plan or £45 if you don't
Less than £7,500, held in a Junior ISA/SIPP £25
£7,500 or more but less than £250,000 0.35%
£250,000 or more but less than £1 million 0.20%
£1 million+ 0.20% a year for the first £1 million and no service fee for investments over £1 million. This means the maximum fee you will ever pay for all of your personal accounts is £2,000 a year.

The same service fee is charged across all of your investments. So, if you hold £300,000 - the fee would be 0.20% across the full amount, and not 0.35% on the first £249,999 and then 0.20% a year on the remaining £50,001. For exchange-traded instruments, this portion of the fee is capped at £45. There is no service fee for these investments when held in the Fidelity Investment Account.

Investment charges set by companies managing your funds

Ongoing fund charges are set by the companies who manage the funds and start from 0.05%.

Some funds may also have:

  • a bid-offer spread, which is effectively a charge applied when you buy or sell
  • a performance fee
  • a fund manager buy or sell charge.

We’ve negotiated discounted ongoing charges on hundreds of funds on our platform. We recommend checking each investment's factsheet for more information, as investment charges as can differ between funds.

Putting it into practice

Here are some scenarios, for illustrative purposes only, that show how we would calculate what service fee you would be charged. If you have less than £7,500 in total there will be a flat fee of £45 a year (£25 for Junior ISA and Junior SIPP), although this changes to 0.35% if you have a monthly regular savings plan (RSP). We will usually collect this fee in arrears in monthly instalments of £3.75 (or £2.08 for Junior ISA and Junior SIPP).

Examples of what service fee you could pay

Amount invested Annual service fees with monthly RSP Annual service fees without monthly RSP
£5,000 £17.50 (0.35%) £45 (flat fee)
£7,499 £26.24 (0.35%) £45 (flat fee)
£7,500 £26.25 (0.35%)
£12,500 £43.75 (0.35%)
£20,000 £70.00 (0.35%)
£55,000 £192.50 (0.35%)
