My account did not have any transactions this month. Will there be a subscription fee?

Yes. Subscription fee applies regardless of transaction amount. Eligible Client may terminate the program by submitting a written instruction before the 15th of any given month with effective date as the next first of month.

I don’t want to pay a monthly fee. Is there another payment plan? How can I avoid the monthly fee?

Yes, you can consider choosing our pay-as-you-go plan with commission at 0.138% and minimum HK$88 per transaction.

There are other brokers that charge cheaper rates than you. What makes you different from other brokers?

Are there any extra costs?

Eligible Client is required to pay other trading fees, including, but not limited to, interest, nominee service fees and all statutory or third-party transaction charges, such as transaction levies, stamp duties, HKEx trading fees and CCASS settlement fees, where applicable.

How do you calculate “Monthly Average Account Balance”?

“Monthly Average Account Balance” is the sum of your daily account balance averaged by the number of days in that month.

If my balance is insufficient to pay the monthly subscription fee, will it become an overdraft balance?

We will charge the fee within the first three working days of each month. In the event of insufficient funds , the account will have a negative balance due to the deduction of the fee, and overdraft interest will be charged (at a preferential interest rate of +3% p.a. Please refer to information by Standard Chartered Bank (Hong Kong) Limited for interest rates). Please ensure that your account has sufficient cash balance.
