What to expect when you move to us
It’s always nice to know what’s happening, so here’s a quick checklist to keep you in the loop.
Prior to the transfer, Legal & General will write to you confirming your transfer date and details of what happens next.
Following the successful transfer of your investment(s), you can expect to receive the below from us within 10-14 days:
- A letter confirming that your investment(s) have been moved across and your Fidelity Account Number.
- A Welcome Pack containing your Customer Reference Number and simple instructions on how to set up your online account. (If you hold an existing Fidelity account, you’ll already have this information and so won’t receive another Welcome Pack.)
- And if you have a regular savings plan with Legal & General or receive income from your investments (such as interest and dividends), we’ll also provide details in the above to let you know how to continue these with Fidelity.
Please note: you’ll need both your Fidelity Account Number and Customer Reference Number, provided in the above letters, to be able to set up your online account.
Our fees explained
Our approach to fees is clear and transparent, so you can see exactly what you’re paying for. You’ll notice from the table below that our fees break down into two parts. In the past, you were charged both these elements by Legal & General, but they were ‘bundled’ into one fee that was paid directly from your fund charges. What’s important, is that your fees will be the same or less than you were paying when you were with Legal & General.
Low cost service fee
This is the fee you pay to us and pays for everything we offer. You’ll see this taken as a transaction from your account on a monthly basis. It’s typically 0.35% but is reduced to 0.2% for customers who invest over £250,000 with us. We don’t charge on investments over £1m.
These are ongoing charges that are set by the companies and funds you invest in and start from 0.05%. Specific charges can be found on the investment's factsheet. Use our A-Z fund tool to view a fact sheet.
See an example of how our charges differ or you can read more on our fees and charges. Please note that reduced pricing exceptions may apply to ensure Legal & General customers won't pay any more when they move across to Fidelity.

Be fraud aware
Fraudsters are impersonating Fidelity, falsely claiming the company is going into liquidation. The scam encourages people to call a number regarding the redemption of their assets. Fidelity is not going into liquidation. This number does not belong to Fidelity. If you shared any personal or account information or have redeemed any assets, please contact Fidelity and your bank immediately and report the matter to Action Fraud.
Fraudsters have also impersonated Fidelity to promote a ‘Fixed Interest Investment ISA Bond’ which offers fixed rates of returns following a minimum initial investment. This is an investment scam and if you think you’ve been targeted and made an investment already, contact your bank immediately and report the matter to Action Fraud. Additionally, the scam encourages people to call a number regarding the transfer of investments from Legal & General to Fidelity. This number does not belong to Fidelity or Legal & General.
