In the past, you may not have thought about investments. But with interest rates as low as they are, now might be the time to consider them as an option. As you’ll see below, investing doesn’t have to be difficult or complex. Quite the opposite in fact. That’s because we offer two really straightforward ways for you to invest: a Share Dealing ISA and a Share Dealing Account.

It means you can invest online or over the phone, and buy or sell UK and international shares or choose from  over 3,000 funds. And how you invest is completely up to you – whether it’s a well-known brand or a business or asset you’re interested in.

If you have invested before, you’ll see just how clear and competitive our fees are.

Please remember that the value of an investment and the income from it can go down as well as up and you could get back less than you invested. We don't offer advice so you'll need to be confident making your own investment decisions or seek advice from a suitably qualified financial adviser.

What we can offer you

  • Flat rate online trading for £11 per deal and £20 six monthly administration charge.
  • Frequent trader discounts - £8 per deal if you trade 8 or more times every quarter
  • Access to 7 world stock markets and over 3000 funds to invest in
