Why choose TD Direct Investing?
Reduce your FX costs
You can hold 9 different currencies in the Trading and TD SIPP accounts, meaning you may not have to pay to convert currency each time you trade or receive a dividend payment.
You also control when to convert your currency, which is really handy if you want to sell, locking in any profit you’ve made, when the rate of exchange isn’t favourable.
HMRC rules prevent non-sterling currency being held in an ISA. You can hold cash in 9 major currencies in the Trading and TD SIPP accounts.
