Why are there administrative charges on Swap-Free accounts?

What is a Swap-Free account?

A swap-free account, also known as an Islamic account, is designed for clients who adhere to Islamic principles prohibiting the payment or receipt of interest (Riba). It eliminates the opportunities to trade on conventional floating overnight swap charges on positions and charges fixed daily admin fees instead.


Why are there admin charges on Swap-Free accounts?

Admin charges are imposed to cover the financing and administrative costs for overnight positions from brokers. These charges will help brokers maintain Islamic trading services without overnight market financing rates.


Why are admin fees higher on certain days?

Admin fees may be adjusted on specific days to account for increased operational expenses related to the provision of swap-free accounts on those days.

Also, to account for holding costs over the 2 weekend days, the admin fees would be tripled on Wednesday for Forex & Metals and Friday for Indices, Commodities and Cryptos.


Can I avoid admin charges on my Swap-Free account?
