Whether you're looking for shares to buy once or twice a year or you want to trade several times a day, we have a share dealing account to suit your needs. We have a range of services available to suit beginners to the stock market or the more experienced trader.
If you’re brand new to trading you might want to try our Fantasy Trader game - we give you a virtual £10,000 to practice trading risk-free. However, if you’re ready to start trading then our Share Dealing Account might be the best place to start - we don’t charge any administration or inactivity fees and you can trade real-time for just £12.50 commission or use a regular investment plan to trade from just £2 commission per stock. You could also trade tax-efficiently by using a Stocks & Shares ISA or if you’re interested in pension planning you could open a Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP).
You can use our dedicated market research centre to find prices, charts, news and analysis to help you buy shares with confidence.
Please remember that the value of an investment and the income from it can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you invested.
We don't provide advice so if you are in any doubt about making your own investment decisions we recommend you seek advice from a suitably qualified financial adviser.
If you're looking for a simple way to invest online without advice, Halifax Online Investments offers a range of three managed growth funds.
