what are shares?

A share is an investment in an individual company.
Buying even one share gives you part ownership, albeit a very small part, of that company.
As a shareholder you are entitled to benefits including receiving dividends and registering your votes in company activities.

We have 20 years' experience of helping people invest online and are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. All customer investments are held electronically. If you have cash in your account this is entirely separate from the company's finances and Interactive Investor has no access to those assets. Your cash and holdings are protected up to the limits provided by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) and a full set of accounts and shareholder information is available at Companies House. With secure customer log in and encrypted data throughout, we offer a service you can rely on.

knowing the risks

The value of investments, and any income from them, can fall as well as rise so you could get back less than you invest. Past performance is no guarantee of future performance. Tax treatment depends on your individual circumstances and may be subject to change. If in any doubt, please seek advice.
