Halifax Share Dealing Review

as of 07/09/2020 at 3:04 pm

Holly's View

This site is for the confident investor who knows what they are doing, and who is looking for a low-cost, no-frills service. Price is the USP and for any less confident investors there is very little help, content, guidance or substance to offer a more rounded experience.

The 'Geeky' Details

Provider details

Halifax charge a set £12.50 yearly admin fee for their Stocks & Shares ISA, making it a cheaper alternative for both medium and larger portfolios than pretty much anyone else. Annual costs of a pension of more than £50,000 are £180 plus transaction fees. The website lacks sophistication and user-friendliness, feeling quite old-school and stuffy.
They do offer 3 ready-made funds, varying in risk – however these funds were launched in September 2019 and hence lack any meaningful track record. There is also a shortlist of 96 funds available, produced by global research house Morningstar. The site also supports trading UK, US and European equities.
Trading fees are £12.50 per trade, falling to £2 a trade if you set up a regular trading plan.
