A ShareBuilder helps you buy, sell and hold a wide range of UK shares. There is no extra cost to start a regular investment plan, where you invest a minimum of £20 a month with no tie in period. Each scheduled trade is subject to £2 dealing commission. You can change the amount or investment at any time.

Our ShareBuilder is designed to make the most of your regular investments. We’ll never leave any leftover cash in the account when you’ve asked us to invest it - this is because we’ll buy a partial share when there isn’t enough cash to buy a full share.

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 financial advice.
