Very helpful and knowledgeable staff; real people take calls - brilliant in this day and age. The best organisation I have ever dealt with in all my business life spanning 46 years.

I’ve found all my involvement with Hargreaves Lansdown to be superb. I actually think the whole platform works exceptionally well and I frankly wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the company to anybody.

1. Subject to these terms and conditions, if you transfer an existing ISA or General Investment Account with a value of at least £1,000 from another provider to our platform, you will receive a cash amount between £20 and £250, depending on the amount you transfer (the “Offer”).

2. The Offer does not apply to investments already held on the HL platform, to switches or transfers between or within existing HL accounts or to income and interest received on any assets held in those accounts.

3. The Offer is funded by us and the cashback will not come from your own cash or investments. The Offer will be available until 30 April 2020 inclusive, however, we reserve the right to remove or suspend the Offer if necessary, including for legal or regulatory reasons or otherwise, by posting a notice on our website. If the Offer closes early, all qualifying applications already received at the time of the posting of the notice will still be accepted.
