If you're interested in trying out the stock market but you haven't got a lump sum to invest, you could try a regular investment plan.
With a regular investment plan you can purchase shares for the reduced dealing commission of just £2.00 per trade and invest from as little as £20 per month (minimum investment of £5 per stock). Simply set-up an investment plan on one of four set dates each month and we'll do the rest. There’s no tie-in period either so you can stop investing whenever you want. When you're ready to sell you can trade real-time online for just £12.50 dealing commission per trade.
Please note: the regular investment plan can be set-up on any of our share dealing accounts at the reduced dealing commission of £2 per trade. Account administration charges vary, so please familiarise yourself with these charges before you decide to apply.
