Saxo Markets announces price reductions for HK retail clients

Online trading and investment specialist Saxo Markets has announced a suite of price reductions which are designed to allow more of its retail clients in Hong Kong to invest in the global capital markets at some of the lowest rates available.

Saxo is lowering commission to 0.05% (down from 0.08%) with a HKD18 minimum charge (down from HKD40) for HK equities; and commission to USD0.005-0.008/share (down from USD0.007-0.01/share, subject to trading volume) with a USD3 minimum charge (down from USD10) for US equities.

The existing custody fee (0.12% for HK equities) and inactivity fee (USD200/annum) will both be abolished with no other monthly fee, platform fee or dividend collection fee, which is very competitive in the market.

For margin lending, Saxo is reducing the rate to 1.97%-3.97% (subject to trading volume) for HK equities and to 1.58%-2.98% (subject to trading volume) for US equities. HK IPO financing rate remains at 0%.

No new fees are being introduced.

Richard Douglas, Hong Kong CEO, Saxo Markets, comments,
