Bank fees

At Pepperstone, we want our clients to be successful with their trading. Therefore, we do not charge any additional fees on deposits or withdrawals. Please note that you may incur fees on payments to and from some non-UK banks. Any transfer fees charged by the client’s bank, or by our bank, will be passed onto the client. This mostly applies to funds being sent from outside of the UK.

Security of funds

Pepperstone is fully FCA regulated and is a member of the FSCS, the UK’s compensation scheme. We hold clients’ funds in segregated bank accounts at a number of main banks across the UK, including Barclays and Natwest. In doing so, we ensure that money remains easily identifiable as ‘client money’ and that Pepperstone and its creditors will never have any charge or retention over it.

Other information

Third party payments 

Pepperstone cannot accept payments from third parties. Please ensure that all deposits into your trading account come from a bank account in your name. Payments from Joint Bank Accounts, Debit/Credit Cards or PayPal accounts are allocated if the trading account holder is one of the account owners.

Withdrawals to third parties

Pepperstone can only return funds to a bank account, PayPal account or debit/credit card in the same name (or joint) as your trading account due to third party transaction regulations.



Bank holidays

In unforeseen circumstances, such as bank holidays, please note that withdrawal times may be longer.



Broker to broker transfer

You may request to transfer funds to Pepperstone directly from other FCA regulated brokers, based in UK. You just need to input our bank details, which you can find on your Secure Client Area, and add your name/trading accounts as reference.
