  • There are no hidden fees with Syfe. Here is a breakdown of Syfe's fees, FX fees and the regulatory fees applicable.

    • On the US market, brokerage fees of just US$1.49 per trade 
    • On the AUS market, 
      • For trades under A$20,000 - brokerage is a flat fee of A$4.99
      • - For trades over A$20,000 - brokerage is 0.025% of trade value

    FX fees: Syfe applies an extremely competitive 60 basis point fee when converting AU$ to US$ or US$ to AU$. Currency conversion also occurs instantaneously allowing you to deposit, trade, or withdraw as you need. Once you have converted a currency, your transaction history in the app will show the actual exchange rate.

    Regulatory fees: These are fees imposed on US stock trading by regulators, the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) which are levied on brokerage firms for engaging in stock trading.

    The SEC levies a US$8.00 fee for every US$1,000,000 of principal sold, rounded to the nearest cent.

    FINRA charges brokerage firms a small fee on sell orders, which is passed through to the SEC to support the costs of regulation and supervision. This is also known as the TAF, or Trading Activity Fee. For stocks and ETFs all sales are charged at a rate of US$0.000119 per share with a minimum charge of US$0.01 and a maximum charge of US$5.95.

    SEC & FINRA fees only occur on the sale of a security and are equal to:

    SEC Fee = total price of transaction * US$8.00 / US$1,000,000

    TAF = US$0.000119 per share for each sale of covered equity security with a maximum of US$5.95 per trade.

    Fees are rounded up to the nearest one cent.

    For example, if you sell 1 share of Apple for US$150, the fee would be :

    SEC fee: US$150 * US$8.00 / US$1,000,000 = US$0.0012 rounded up to minimum fee of US$0.01

    TAF fee: US$0.000119 * 1 share = US$0.000119 rounded up to minimum fee of US$0.01

    The total regulatory fees would be US$0.02.

    When applicable, the fees levied will be charged on sell orders and will be deducted from your buying power.
