If you’re an existing customer and need a little guidance on managing your account then we can help.

Transfer timescales

Due to the unprecedented demand for our service transfers are taking longer than usual. Transfers are currently taking up to 12 weeks and there is currently a delay of 3 weeks to log your initial request. We are working hard to process transfers as quickly as possible and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

During the transfer process there could be a period of time when your investments or cash may not be accessed, therefore you may not be able to act on market movements.

We’re making it easier to view and access your Share Dealing account.
