25.1. Plus users
If you are a Plus user, you will receive interest on a capped amount of the Available Funds which you hold in your General Investment Account or Freetrade ISA. The interest rate, which you will receive, and the capped amount, on which interest will be calculated, can be viewed on the Plus section of our website, which can be found here. We can make changes to the interest rate and capped amount from time to time.
Where you hold both a Freetrade ISA and a General Investment Account, the amount will be capped according to the combined Available Funds in the accounts. You will not receive any interest on any Available Funds held in excess of the Capped Amount.
Where you hold both a Freetrade ISA and a General Investment Account, the Available Funds held in your ISA will take priority over the Available Funds held in your General Investment Account for eligibility for and receipt of interest. This means that if the amount of Available Funds held in your ISA is equal to or greater than the Capped Amount, you will receive interest on the Capped Amount in your ISA and you will receive no interest on the Available Funds held in your General Investment Account.
We will calculate how much interest you have earned daily, based on the combined Available Funds held in your General Investment Account and Freetrade ISA at the end of each working day. Any deposits received on weekends and on some bank holidays will not be eligible to receive interest until the next working day. We will add any earned interest monthly to the Available Funds in your General Investment Account or Freetrade ISA. Ordinarily, the earned interest for a calendar month will be added to your Available Funds on the 11th working day of the following month.
While we endeavour to allocate any funds received to your accounts as soon as possible (for example, deposits or dividends), there can be delays to this allocation. If funds are allocated to one of your accounts after the monthly interest amount is calculated for payment, due to issues outside of our reasonable control, they will not be eligible to receive interest in respect of that month period.
If you cancel your Plus membership, you will be entitled to receive interest for the days on which you held a valid Plus membership. If you fail to pay the Plus subscription fee on time for a period, you will not be entitled to interest for that period.
If you do not wish to earn any interest on your Available Funds, you can opt out of receiving any interest, provided that you get in contact with us to communicate this.
