Guaranteed Stop Maximum Size

Guaranteed stop losses are offered on many products. Guaranteed Stop losses are free and protect against adverse movement in the underlying market by closing out an open trade at a level specified. The GSMS value represents the maximum trade size that is eligible for guarantee.

Please note that there may also be certain time restrictions in place (for example, stop losses are not eligible for guarantee when placed or moved closer to the current market price outside of market trading hours).

If a product is eligible and has a corresponding GSMS value of 50, any stop loss below (and including) a trade/stake size of 50 will be filled at its exact level, providing that all other qualifying conditions are met. All other stops are non-guaranteed and subject to slippage.

Dividends

As part of our commitment to complete transparency and to empower clients, we pass on 100% of the announced dividend net of withholding tax, if any. We have also made a lot of effort to get favourable tax treatment on dividends and pass on all these benefits to you.

Many of our competitors do not pass on the full dividend to clients for long positions but we do.

For long positions in UK companies, you will receive 100% of the announced dividend declared by the UK Company.

For non UK companies, the dividend may be subject to withholding tax. For example, if you have a position in US stock, the announced dividend is subject to 30% withholding tax. Being a UK resident firm, we claim a 15% tax benefit, which we pass on to you and therefore, you will be credited 85% of the announced dividends rather than 70%.
