Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Important information - Please remember that the value of investments, and any income from them, can fall as well as rise so you could get back less than you invest. If you are unsure of the suitability of your investment please seek financial advice.

Buy and sell share certificates

You can buy and sell share certificates quickly and easily with us. Deal over the phone, or by post, with easy access to UK shares. You’ll still hold your own certificates, and enjoy any shareholder perks.

There’s a minimum charge of £20. All deals have an additional £20 handling charge. A 0.5% stamp duty applies if you buy UK shares. For trades over £10,000, there’s a £1 Panel on Takeovers and Mergers (PTM) Levy.
