Date of comparison: 15-08-2018

Note: This comparison table does not take into account possible discounts investors can qualify for if they perform a certain number of transactions with different brokers. The exact discounts can be found on the websites of the different providers. In addition, some brokers can choose a different profile where the costs differ from the amounts shown above, but there is usually a higher fixed fee in return.

PTM (Panel on Takeovers & Mergers) Levy, Government Stamp Duty or Stamp Duty Reserve Tax (0.5% on purchases of UK shares and 1.00% on purchase of Irish shares) is not included in any of the commission fees quoted. You do not pay Stamp Duty on AIM stocks or Exchange Traded Funds.

The above is only a comparison by price. Other matters may also be of importance to a comparison. For example, different parties may offer additional services. Prices are subject to change and correct at time of comparison. Based on the following exchange rates: GBP/EUR=1.12 EUR/GBP=0.89 GBP/USD=1.31 USD/GBP=0.76 EUR/USD=1.17 USD/EUR=0.85

Connectivity costs

DEGIRO charges a fee to set up trading opportunities outside of your home market. This is to provide access to a large number of exchanges. This fee is levied upon those who are using these exchanges. DEGIRO use a pay-per-use policy in its pricing, this means if you use a particular service you will be charged a fee but if you do not then you will not incur additional fees.

For the connection fees you will pay a maximum of 0.25% of your total account value (with a maximum charge of €2.50) per calendar year for each exchange with the exception of London Stock Exchange. These charges will be applied if you carry out a transaction or hold a position during the calendar year.

For example: Your account value is €5,000 and you have carried out trades on London Stock Exchange, Euronext Derivatives, Eurex and also hold positions on the NYSE and London Stock Exchange, the below calculation will provide the fees:

London Stock Exchange
€0.00 (positions and transactions for home market)
Euronext Derivatives
€2.50 (transactions)
Eurex
€2.50 (transactions)
NYSE
€2.50 (positions)
Total connectivity costs for this year
3 x €2.50 = €7.50

Fee surcharge

Loss of internal matching

At the start of the year, a series of new European regulation (MIFID II) came into effect for investment firms and trading platforms. As a result of this change, we reported late last year that DEGIRO was required to make changes to the internal execution of client orders. Achieving the same level of efficiency within the current regulatory scope has turned out to be more complicated than earlier anticipated. Unfortunately, this situation means that DEGIRO must now incur higher costs for the execution of your orders on the exchange. The result of this change is a temporary adjustment of our fees.

What will change?

There will be a surcharge added to the following fees:

  • + 0.018% on securities (except US and Canadian markets). For example, the costs of a stock transaction on the London Stock Exchange will become £1.75 + 0.022%.
  • + €0.15 on options and futures. For example, the cost to purchase an option on Eurex will be €0.90 per contract.

These changes came into effect on 15/08/2018 and will stay for a maximum of 18 months. DEGIRO is currently researching alternatives in order to reduce these costs back to the original level. This could be by an in-house solution or through an external party.

Despite this fee surcharge, you can still trade with incredibly low fees at DEGIRO.
