eToro Review

EToro has among the lowest fees and best mobile app experiences of brokers we tested in the U.K. We believe eToro offers a great starting point for those new to stock trading, but does appear to be more suited to short-term traders rather than long-term investors.

Interactive Investor Review

The standout feature at Interactive Investor (ii), a major U.K. investment platform, is its low flat-rate fees. This is in contrast to other investment platforms, which typically favour percentage fees for fund investing, although more brokers are now opting for flat fees.

Interactive Brokers UK Review

Interactive Brokers is a sophisticated trading platform aimed at confident investors but also offers great value and resources for newer investors. We believe it’s certainly worth exploring the platform to see if you could save money or access more investments compared to other brokers.
