Account and cards

The app's homepage shows you the main information regarding your accounts and cards: Your assets, latest transactions and expenses incurred using your cards, in real time. You can share your account details and shield your assets from prying eyes.

Your assets are split into total balance and total portfolio.
Asset management products are not included in the total portfolio.

Total balance

Total balance is the sum of:

  • the available balance in your GBP account;
  • the available balance expressed in GBP of any Multicurrency accounts.

The available balance is the amount that you can actually spend. It is calculated by adding to or subtracting of all funds deposited from the accounting balance, even if with value dates not reached yet or funds not available, for other non-trading banking transactions.

Total Portfolio

Total portfolio is updated in real time to reflect any purchase and sale transactions carried out on the markets. For each deposit you can also view details of the value of the following products in your portfolio: Shares, ETFs, Certificates, Bonds, Funds and savings plans.
The following are not included as part of the value of your portfolio:

  • Margins used for trading in derivatives, CFDs and Fx CFDs (Forex);
  • Orders that have been placed but not executed yet.

From the homepage, expanding the Total balance tab allows you to access the details page for your current account, which shows the following:

  • account holder name and account sort code, which can be shared;
  • available balance and accounting balance;
  • an icon to access the currency exchange service;
  • a graph showing credits and debits for the last month.

You can also display the latest transactions in your current account and latest transfers.

Payment cards

The payment cards section of the app can be reached from the homepage or from the menu.
For each payment card, you can view the expenses made during the current month, sorted by POS (Point of Sale) and withdrawals.

The card details page shows the following information:

  • the card number or nickname;
  • the card status;
  • total expenses made during the month;
  • the remaining available funds;
  • the card limit.

The Card Options link lets you request an increase in your card limit, manage your spending limits and request a card PIN code.

Expenses incurred during the previous five-month period and during the current month are shown in a chart, along with a figure showing the average expense. Scrolling down to the bottom of the page, transactions for the current month may be viewed. Just tap on the calendar to view transactions that were made during any of the five preceding months.
