A foreign exchange fee for trading in foreign investment funds is common for many investment fund distributors in the market. Each time you buy or sell a fund that is listed in a currency other than Swedish kronor, a foreign exchange takes place at the distributor’s exchange rate which often includes a mark-up. If you trade in a foreign fund directly in Swedish kronor, the investment fund company has handled the foreign exchange itself, probably at a most lower exchange rate.
Advinans does not want the currency in which the investment fund is traded to make any difference to you as a customer. With Advinans, any foreign exchange will be done via Allfunds to an institutional exchange rate for various currencies from Danske Bank. Neither Advinans nor Allfunds adds any mark-up to this exchange rate.
