I've thoroughly tested Pepperstone services with our analyst team by opening a real-money account and these are my most important findings:

  • Non-trading fees at Pepperstone are considered to be low overall
  • Apart from trading fees, online brokerages usually charge non-trading fees as well
  • Inactivity and custody fees are the most important non-trading fees for long-term stock investors

What are non-trading fees and when are they charged?

Brokerage services are rarely completely free, and what you pay your broker can make a big difference in your investment results. Trading fees - such as the commission on a simple stock trade - are usually fairly straightforward, but there may be other fees lurking in the background. If you're a long-term stock investor, the following so-called non-trading fees are worth your attention:

  • Inactivity fees are charged by some brokers if you don't use your account for an extended period; it's typically only a few dollars per month but can be higher sometimes
  • Some brokers charge a custody fee for the safekeeping of your stock, ETF or bond investments; this is usually a very small percentage of the value of your current holdings

Other non-trading fees you may encounter include conversion fees (if your account and the stock you're buying are in a different currency), and withdrawal fees (for taking money out of your brokerage account). Thankfully, the vast majority of brokers no longer charge deposit fees (for putting money in your account) or account fees (just for maintaining your account).
