Trades in excess of this figure will be subject to a rate of 0.20% with no maximum for CSN trades and 0.35% with no maximum for certified trades. this is due to trades of this type not achieving an automated quotation and Link Asset Services having to work with market makers to ensure the stakeholder receives the best price at the time of sale. These trades will be handled by Link Asset Services' Corporate & Employee Dealing Team.
