Our services are execution only. We have not assessed your investing knowledge and experience, your financial situation or your investment objectives. If you are unsure about any aspects of the features or risks of this product, the suitability of a particular investment or think you need a personal recommendation, you should speak to a suitably qualified financial adviser. The value of your investments and the income derived from them may go down as well as up. You may not get back all the money that you invest. The potential for profit or loss from transactions on international markets or in foreign denominated currencies will be affected by fluctuations in exchange rates. We may receive two elements of commission in relation to international dealing - Trading Commission and our FX Charge. Please see our rates and charges for full details of the relevant costs. Please note for trades which have required multiple fills to execute, you will be charged an FX at the rate applicable to each individual fill. This may result in a higher FX charge than would be calculated against the whole. Please be aware that we have a revenue sharing agreement for the FX charge with a third party. If you require further information please write to us.
