Share dealing FAQs

What is online share dealing?

Share dealing is when you buy or sell shares in a public limited company on a recognised stock exchange. You can do this at any time the exchange is open. When you buy a share you become one of the company’s owners and you may be entitled to a share of any profits it makes. If the company does well, your shares may go up in value because more people want to have a stake in the company. But if the company doesn’t do well, the value of your shares may fall. Our share dealing service will also be offering other types investments, in addition to company shares. One of the main types will be bonds, which are loans to a large organisation. As our service develops, we will enable you to buy UK government bonds, known as gilts, as well as corporate bonds.

How can I open a share dealing account?

Our service is primarily an online service and there are different accounts you can open to trade in shares.

You can choose from an Investment Account, Investment ISA or Junior ISA. The money you pay into the account, when you set it up, will be held as cash until you’re ready to trade.

You can choose to invest any or all of your ISA allowance or the money in your Investment Account, in a wide range of funds or shares. If you’re unsure where to invest, speak to an authorised financial adviser.

How quickly will my share orders be executed?

Unlike with fund deals, you will be able to deal at any time of day, while the markets are open – there isn’t just one daily pricing point. With a market order your deal will go through straightaway at the price you have been quoted. If you place a limit order, the transaction will go through if the stock reaches the price you have specified, regardless of when this happens, as long as it is on the same business day that you placed the order. You can place a deal when markets are closed and it will go through as soon as they re-open. London markets are open from 8am to 4.30pm.

Where can I view and access my online trading account?
