It's important to note that not only is there the cost to place the trade, but most share dealing brokers also charge a monthly, quarterly, or annual management fee depending on the type and size of your portfolio. We assessed both to provide a single star rating for cost. DEGIRO's score is 4.50 stars versus Saxo Markets's 3.50 stars.
