Ex-Ante Costs and Charges Disclosures


 What is this Disclosure?

MIFID II rules require that Interactive Brokers in Europe and the UK provide its retail clients with a reasonable estimate of the costs and charges related to products and services offered.

Retail clients of Interactive Brokers in Europe can view a per-transaction costs and charges disclosure at the time of the order entry (‘ex-ante’). The disclosure is personalized and corresponds to the conditions applicable to the client account.
While clients have the option to view the disclosure, it is not a mandatory step before the order submission.

The disclosure content and format are largely prescribed by the rules to enable retail clients to compare costs and charges across providers. This article aims to clarify the meaning of these standardized terms.

In addition to Interactive Brokers costs and charges, the disclosure must show implicit costs and costs embedded in the product price itself (and not charged by Interactive Brokers separately).
A per transaction costs and charges disclosure is required for:

  • All futures and options globally, including futures options
  • ETFs of all types
  • Funds, including closed-end funds
  • CFDs
  • Warrants and structured products

A disclosure is not required for other products such as vanilla stocks and bonds.



 Where to Find the Per-transaction Costs and Charges Disclosure?

Access to the disclosure is via a link embedded in the primary order-entry dialog.

TWS Classic:

The presence of the link does not interrupt the standard order entry workflow if a client chooses not to click it. A client can click the transmit button in the usual way and skip viewing the disclosure.

Clicking the “Cost Impact” link brings up a pop-up with the ex-ante per transaction costs and charges disclosure, with the option to download it as a PDF:

Other Trading Applications:

The other order entry interfaces such as Mosaic, Client Portal and Mobile likewise include a link to the costs and charges disclosure, again without interrupting the standard workflow unless a client expressly wants to see the disclosure.

Below is an example of the order ticket in the Client Portal. Order tickets in TWS Mosaic and Mobile are similar.

The Disclosure Content and Structure

The per transaction costs and charges disclosure includes a summary-section followed by an itemized costs and charges breakdown. The various cost items are presented using headings and terms that are mandated by the regulation to make the disclosures comparable across investment service providers. The example below illustrates the statement structure and contains explanatory notes.

Please note that the “Financial Instrument Cost” is embedded in the product, and not a cost charged by Interactive Brokers. We are required to source or estimate such costs so you could better understand all of the costs that are associated with some of your securities.

FAQs for February 23, 2022 messages regarding CME exchange fee credits

Why did I receive this message?

You received a message from IBKR on February 23, 2022 because your account traded spread trades on CME in (1) one or more of the following products between January 1, 2015 and late September 2021: E-Mini Equity index Futures (including Housing Index Futures); Micro E-Mini Index Futures; Micro E-Mini Index Options; and Nikkei Equity Futures, and/or (2) certain FX futures products between February 1, 2018 and mid-December 2021.

Why did I receive a credit?

As set forth in the message, certain spread trades in those products (see response #1) are subject to discounted CME exchange fees (as compared to outright trades in those products).  Your account traded spread trades in one or more of those products between January 1, 2015 and late September 2021 (or FX futures between February 1, 2018 and mid-December 2021) and, as a result of an inadvertent error, overpaid associated CME exchange fees.  IBKR has credited your account for the overpaid CME exchange fees. 

What do I need to do?

You will need to log into your account and withdrawal the funds.

Am I owed money for other trades?

Not that we have identified.  

How long do I have to withdraw the funds?

Please withdraw the funds within 30 days of the date of the message you received (by March 25, 2022).

The message I received says something about owing an outstanding debt to IBKR. What does that mean?

This means that your account owed an outstanding debt to IBKR, and the amount you received in reimbursement was credited against the outstanding debt amount. If the reimbursement amount exceeded the outstanding debt about, you received a credit and may withdraw the difference.

Sending Funds to IBKR Post Migration

If your account has recently migrated to IBKR Ireland (IBIE) or IBKR Central Europe (IBCE), it is likely that you have outdated bank instructions saved in your Client Portal or with your bank. When transferring funds to IBKR after migration, you will want to enter a new deposit notification/bank instruction within Client Portal and update any saved IBKR bank information that you have with your bank. 

Should you inadvertently use outdated bank instructions to send funds to IBKR and they arrive at the incorrect IBKR entity, as a courtesy we will attempt to forward the funds to the correct IBKR entity. Please note that this transfer will be done free of charge for the first instance. For subsequent transfers, IBKR will charge your account a processing fee of EUR 50 (or equivalent). You will also receive a message notifying you of the transfer and advising you to update your bank information.

1. 佣金——取决于产品类型和挂牌交易所,以及您选择的是打包式(一价全含)还是非打包式收费。例如,美国股票佣金为每股0.005美元,每笔交易最低佣金为1.00美元。

2. 利息——保证金贷款需缴纳利息,IBKR采用国际公认的隔夜存款基准利率作为基础来确定自己的利率。然后我们将分等级在基准利率基础上应用一个浮动值(这样余额越大对应的利率就越有利)来确定实际利率。例如,对于美元计价的贷款,基准利率是联邦基金利率,而10万美元以内的余额利率会在基准利率的基础上加1.5%。此外,卖空股票的个人应注意,借用“难以借到”的股票还会有一笔特殊费用,以日息表示。 

3. 交易所费用——取决于产品类型和交易所。例如,对于美国证券期权,某些交易所会对消耗流动性的委托单(市价委托单或适销的限价委托单)收取费用、对添加流动性的委托单(限价委托单)给与补贴。此外,许多交易所还会对取消或修改的委托单收取费用。

4. 市场数据——您并非一定要订阅市场数据,但是如果不订阅市场数据,您可以会产生月费用,具体取决于供应交易所及其订阅服务。我们提供市场数据助手工具,可根据您想交易的产品帮助您选择适当的市场数据订阅服务。要访问该工具,请登录客户端,点击支持然后打开市场数据助手链接。

5. 最低月活动费用——为迎合活跃客户的需求,我们规定如果账户产生的月佣金能达到最低月佣金要求,则可免交月活动费用;而如果产生的月佣金未能达到最低月佣金要求,则需缴纳差额作为活动费用。最低月佣金要求为10美元。

6. 杂费 - IBKR允许每月一次免费取款,后续取款将收取费用。此外,还会代收交易取消请求费用、期权和期货行权&被行权费用以及ADR保管费用。
