Managing your family's investments with linked accounts

Linked accounts is a time-saving feature that allows you to view and manage your family's Hargreaves Lansdown accounts using a single set of login details.

Once set up, each time you log in to your account you will be able to easily switch between family members' accounts without having to log in multiple times or remember multiple usernames and passwords. With linked accounts, managing your family's ISAs, pensions, funds and shares has never been easier.

Benefits of using linked accounts

  • No need to remember multiple usernames and passwords
  • Switch between your other family members' accounts in an instant
  • Easily stay up to date with the performance of holdings
  • View statements, valuations and tax certificates
  • Check the amount contributed in the tax year

You can cancel access to your account at any time by calling us on 0117 980 9953.

Each time you log in to your account, the registered linked accounts will be shown across the top of the page. You can then simply click a tab to view and manage that account. Below you can see how you can access your family's accounts quickly and easily without having to remember additional usernames and passwords.

Linking to other accounts

When you link an account to your own, you will have access to that account but it will not automatically have access to your account.

Once you have linked accounts you will have access to many of the same tools and information as you would with your own account. Please note that is not possible to carry out all account functions through the linked accounts facility. The account holder would need to be logged in to their own account directly for certain actions, for example contributing to an ISA, amending personal details, and requesting withdrawals.

You can also use the HL app to manage your linked accounts at any time, and wherever you are.

How do I link accounts?

Simply log in to your account and select the Linked accounts tab from the Portfolio overview screen, and then follow these steps:

  1. Click 'Add Account'

  2. Enter the Username and date of birth of the holder of the account you wish to link to

  3. Enter the Master Password of the account you wish to link to

And that's it, you're done! The name and account number of your new linked account will be displayed and you can access the account straight away.

Simply click 'Add Account' to repeat the process.
