Tried and failed!

If you are prepared to wait overall month, with no guarantee of success, this is the site for you. I am unable to even open a Share Dealing account. User ID and temp password received eventually, but access to open account, waste of time. So would I recommend Halifax? Not unless a miracle happens within the next few days. Customer service appears disinterested!

Looks good!

Actually Rubbish!

Halifax Share Dealing Service

Halifax share dealing service has in the past been very good and competitive for my family with very good customer service and wide range of services offered from UK to international stock quotes. I would recommend them to others as too many brokers charge activity fees or insist upon a minimum number of transactions per monthly or quarterly trading period.

Competitive price structure and long working hours.

None to mention thus far.

Simple to create a Stocks and Shares ISA

Creation of the account is easy. Trades are fixed at £12.95 but there are regular promotions allowing massive discounts during a particular time period on a particular day.

The account is very easy to manage, easy to transfer money in with funds instantly available once the transaction has been approved, so no waiting 3 days or the like for the funds to be credited.

Have recently moved from a monthly fee % model to a fixed annual fee which makes the account better value if you have a few investments.

There are cheaper trading platforms out there, but the interface makes everything nice and easy for the novice user.

Recommended.

Easy to use, fee promotions, easy to credit funds

Review of Halifax Sharedealing Account

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.

Very easy to use. Excellent web site

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.

Halifax Sharedealing Account

Great little account if like me are not a regular trader, but like to dip you toe in the FTSE water. Have always done the traders I wanted with no fuss or problems either buying or selling shares. Does dividend reinvestment and the odd large IPO offering, but not a lot of the smaller kinds. Probably does more in depth investing but I'm afraid I don't know what do so never really bothered looking.

easy to use

probably not for experienced traders

Good for small portfolios

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.

Easy to use

nothing comes to mind

Halifax share dealing

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.

ease of use

could have better offers
