Saxo, the leader in online trading and investment, today announces significant pricing changes across many of its key markets, with a global roll out in the coming months.

From today (15th January 2024), Saxo customers now pay a minimum of $1 commission on US trades, and £3 commission on UK trades. The £7.95 custody fee is removed, and a platform fee is no longer charged. Currency conversion fees have been slashed to 0.25% across all accounts. 
Dan Squires, Head of UK Sales at Saxo UK commented: "In today's investment landscape, the value we offer to our clients is very much linked to our ability to provide cost-effective solutions together with our award-winning platforms and services. Lower costs mean higher potential returns for our growing number of clients. As we cross the milestone of serving over 1 million clients globally, our scale enables us to significantly lower our fees and prices. This scale isn't just a number – it's a testament to the trust our clients place in us and a responsibility we take seriously to continuously seek ways to enhance their investment experience." 

“Saxo offers the best multi-asset trading and investment platform, which gives customers access to over 70,000 instruments globally. We overlay that digital proposition with thought provoking content such as our strategy pieces, as well as technical signals, market news, webinars, blogs and other intelligence. Saxo gives customers the best possible chance of growing their wealth: in simple terms by keeping a lid on costs but having the best access to money making trades. We think that’s a win:win”  Squires added.
