Our UK.StockBrokers.com team spent seven months and hundreds of hours assessing 12 different share dealing accounts for buying shares online in the UK. In total, 124 individual variables were assessed. For this review, we will compare DEGIRO vs Fidelity International.

To start this comparison, first, we will take a look at the fees charged for dealing in the UK. It's important to note that not only is there the cost to place the trade, but most share dealing brokers also charge a monthly, quarterly, or annual management fee depending on the type and size of your portfolio. We assessed both to provide a single star rating for cost. DEGIRO received a rating of 4.50 stars over Fidelity International's 3.50 stars.

Cost aside, we can now turn our focus to popular tools and features investors prefer in the UK. Account access is certainly at the top of the list, and Fidelity International supports ISA, ISA - Junior, SIPP and SIPP - Junior while DEGIRO supports none of these. Looking at charting, the number of drawing tools and total technical indicators made available are important as well as stock alerts.
