Share Dealing Account.
A Share Dealing Account is a simple, low-cost way to buy, sell and hold your investments. It’s free to open and we don’t charge any annual fees – you only pay a dealing commission each time you trade.
With Halifax, we’ve made our Share Dealing Account as flexible as possible. You can choose from a wide variety of investment options, including UK and international shares, funds, exchange traded funds (ETFs), bonds and gilts.
Please remember that the value of all investments can fall as well as rise, and you may get back less than you invest. If you’re not sure about investing, seek independent advice.
Why invest with Halifax
With interest rates remaining at historic lows, it’s unlikely your savings are keeping pace with inflation. Investing can help your money work harder.
Our Share Dealing Account gives you complete flexibility as you can pick the investments that are right for you. You can get started with a regular investment from just £20 each month, or you can invest a lump sum in a wide range of investment types. Read more about our investment options.
Plus, we keep investing affordable. We charge a flat-rate dealing commission each time you trade but we don’t charge costly platform fees so you know exactly how much you’re paying.
