Can I change the settlement period?
Unfortunately it's not possible to amend the Settlement Period. For most Nominee trades money will be credited to your trading account (sales) or taken from your bank account (purchases) within three working days from the date you placed your trade.
Please note that trades must be settled strictly as per the settlement day stated on your contract note. Barclays Stockbrokers will apply administration charges if your account is not settled on the settlement date.
