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.
