Selling your Lloyds Banking Group shares

If you hold Lloyds Banking Group shares in a Shareholder Account, you can sell them real-time during market hours by calling us on 08457 22 55 25. If you're calling from abroad or would prefer not to use the 0845 number, you can call us on  +44 (0) 113 270 1154. You will need to have your Unique Reference Number to hand which you can find on your Shareholder Account Statement.

Unfortunately you are unable to purchase shares using a Shareholder Account. If you do wish to buy shares then you would need to open a Halifax Share Dealing Account.
