It depends on whether you're buying a mutual fund or an Exchange Traded Fund.
For mutual funds, your trade will be at the 'next available price'. Mutual funds set their price once each business day, usually after markets have closed. This means the price you actually get is likely to be different from price you saw when you placed the trade. This is especially true when markets are volatile.
For ETFs, prices change throughout the day on the London Stock Exchange. You can trade using the 'live price' using our quote and deal service for £7.50 per trade. Alternatively, you can place a trade free of charge, using our bulk dealing service, but your order must be placed before the cut-off times of 10.15am or 2.10pm.
