What is the Regulatory Fee?

For U.S. residents, Investing with Futu is commission-free. We don’t charge you fees to open your account, to maintain your account, or to transfer funds to your account. However, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) do charge a small fee for stock sell orders. They charge these fees for all sell orders, regardless of the brokerage. Futu Inc. doesn’t benefit financially from these charges, and we pass them along to the relevant regulatory agencies when we collect them.
