To be eligible to apply for an account you’ll need to be a UK resident, aged 18 years or over.
To open your account you’ll need the following information to hand:
- Your address details for the last three years
- Your debit card details including bank account number and sort code
- Your National Insurance (NI) number for ISA and SIPP purposes
- A valid email address
Please remember that with share dealing, funds or ISA investments, prices can go down as well as up and past performance is not a guide to future performance. Please make sure you are aware of the risks involved.
What happens next?
If your application is successful, within minutes you will be able to access your account, fund it and start trading and investing straight away.
Please note, for a very few customers we need to make additional security checks, in which case we’ll let you know what information we need and will process it as quickly as possible.
We ask our investment account customers for a quarterly fee commitment of £20. Each quarter a pre-payment of £20 is taken from your account or debit card, which gives you £20 of trading credit. This credit can be used to cover the commission for UK and international trades, including regular investments, across your Investment or ISA accounts.
Our charging means that if you trade twice a quarter, you only pay £20 in total, with no additional charges – and you can add an ISA account for free. Any subsequent trade is at our £10 flat fee, or £5, once you qualify for our frequent trader rate.
