The Regular Fixed Charge, which is paid by some International Bond customers under the wealth management charging structure, will increase by 5% pa in 2023. This is in line with our Policy Provisions and follows a review of overall costs, which are impacted by inflation.
The Regular Fixed Charge is a monetary amount taken quarterly in arrears. On average customers will pay between £7 and £8 more per quarter.
Throughout the year, we’ll notify customers of the increase at least 30 days before their bond anniversary date, and their first increased charge will be taken three months after their anniversary date. You may wish to check whether standing orders in place to cover this charge need to be updated.
