Monthly fee

Hi Simon,Some people that use OST are traders and some investors,there is an incentive for traders that do 3 trades a day for the same share,fees reduced,why dont you have an incentive for investors--like a rebate-- where a portion of the monthly fee is refunded eg.keep shares for 3 month period and get 1 months fees back.

Because they make money from you trading. They give you rebates if you trade, not if you don't :)

What about money back if you keep your portfolio with them for x amount of years?

AFAIK, you can buy shares and then close your trading account, no? So if you're into long-term trading, one could get a position and then duck? What would happen to divs etc?
