In some instances we’ve been able to decrease or remove some fees by improving our systems and processes, while in others we’ve had to realign or increase our fees due to underlying costs. However, we’ve made sure that all our fees remain competitive.


To make sure you always know what to expect, below is a summary of all the changes effective since 1 October 2018, and you can find information on all our fees here.
