Halifax Share Dealing Reviews

Halifax share dealing

by jlc108, 1 day ago
ease of use
could have better offers
Recommended by jlc108

I use the online Halifax share dealing account and find it very easy to use. I have never tried the telephone version but think that the charges are higher on that. The online site is very clear and easy to use. You can see your current value statements and also look at any dividends that have been paid. You can also opt to have your dividends automatically reinvested. It costs £12.50 per trade but they often have an offer for cheaper dealing but they are very limited, eg a few hours on one certain date. It would be better if they had the offer for longer periods.

Very easy to use. Excellent web site

Ease of use
Recommended by terry469

I have been using Halifax share dealing for many years now and find it a very good company for dealing with your transactions. I originally found the company as I was using Halifax for a saving account. I am able to use their website for finding and checking share prices. The website is very comprehensive. They have all my shares listed and I can tell at a glance how the market is doing. Buying and selling is straightforward. Just connect your bank account and themoney can be transferred in and out easily. Halifax keep all my share certificates and pay out the dividends without me having to lift a finger. When it comes to buying or selling shares I never have a problem. They send me emails on a regular basis to keep me updated with any transactions that need my attention. It is a very good company and I would highly recommend them.

Good for small portfolios

by celebrity888, 3 days ago
Easy to use
nothing comes to mind
Recommended by celebrity888

I have a straightforward dealing account. No advice offered with this account but then I am only charge for each transaction and no annual fee. Their charges are reasonable, not the cheapest on the market but I'd rather stay with Halifax, a large organisation than a small online dealer. Their online site is easy to navigate for buying and selling. I have not had any problems with my account and I would recommend it if you only deal in shares irregularly. I get sent all the paperwork for postal votes for AGMs as well.

Review of Halifax Sharedealing Account

by NRP, 3 days ago
Easy to use
Dealing charges
Recommended by NRP

The account is easy to use and reliable. No problems experienced so far and would recommend it to others. Lower dealing rates would be preferred. The application process is straightforward and security is sound. The snapshot of your accounts when you log in is also useful and informative. There is rarely any need to visit the branch as most of the account administration can be conducted online.

halifax share dealing

by dpat3015, 5 days ago
good website-easy to buy/sell shares
not competitive for foreign share markets
Recommended by dpat3015

a good experience ib online share dealing- fees are competitive and pricing up to date. Good web site and easy to understand to buy or sell. Also, after buying, your portfolio is updated with a good refrence of book price when bought and the latest profit/loss on the shares.Also, one can buy overseas shares but not the penny shares in usa.But beware of forex charges and fees for overseas transaction.

Totally unacceptable - HALIFAX are rubbish

by stevefr55, 4 months ago
That you can leave these losers behind. The don't deserve your custom
There are not enough letters to describe the totally crap service

I wanted to fund my HALIFAX share dealing account from my HALIFAX current account. The result? The transaction was stopped "for fraud prevention" Laughable. The share dealing account can only be serviced from my current account. The money was never leaving the HALIFAX group of companies. Ironically I was thinking about using the funds to buy some shares in the upcoming TSB placement - another part of the Lloyds group. There is no logical explanation that I can think of that would excuse this failure. Were I buying diamonds in Nairobi or funding an account with another dealer then perhaps - but I emphasise PERHAPS. All I got was the classic run around and spoke to 6 people in total none of whom seemed to give a toss. I said that if I can't use the money I have with them to try and improve my situation then what was the point of carrying on with them. I had no satisfactory answer to this except "sorry". And so to follow through with my threat to leave, I have. I also said that I would happily fill up review sites with my unsatisfactory experience to warn others of the lack of service, the lack of care, the spurious excuses and the poor behaviour. So that is what I am doing. I strongly suggest that if you are interested in banking services that are seamless, coordinated and helpful then you look somewhere else - NOT the HALIFAX. I have no idea what has gone so tragically wrong for them but I am not the only one who sees an inexorable drift toward very second rate service. Do yourselves a favour and look elsewhere.
