Share Dealing Account

Why open a Share Dealing Account?

If you’re looking to make your money work harder for you then there are 2 well known ways to do this, either a cash savings account or investing in the stock market.

Cash savings: Most people already know having cash savings is a good idea, it allows you to build up a secure nest egg which provides money to fall back on in case of emergencies, however what many people don’t realise is that they’re losing buying power at the same time. This is because current Inflation rates are higher than the current interest rates provided by most saving accounts (we’d recommend comparing your cash saving account rate against inflation to see how this affects you).

Investing could beat inflation over the longer term, but it also comes with more risk as investments can go down in value as well as up, but the potential for higher returns than savings is why many people choose to invest.

Who is it for?

Our Share Dealing Account could benefit you if

  • You have exceeded the annual £20,000 ISA allowance
  • You already invest in a Stocks and Shares ISA elsewhere

Extra benefits with an ISA

When you open a Stocks and Shares ISA we also open a Share Dealing Account for you at no additional cost. We'd recommend opening one so you can also benefit from paying no UK tax on income or profits made.
